    Default Samsung Releases "Urban Camping" Ad as part of its Anti-Apple Campaign


    Samsung seems to have released another commercial for their Samsung Galaxy S II’s anti-Apple campaign. This one is labeled "Urban Camping" and continues the trend of pointing out features which Apple’s iPhone 4S does not have. In this specific ad, the main feature being flaunted is the 4G speed that the Galaxy S II has that the iPhone 4S does not. Samsung continues to stereotype Apple users as being the “barista” types who are excited about waiting on line to pick up the iPhone 4S and willing to go as far as camping out on large lines.

    You can take a look at their new advertisement below:



    At this point, the advertisements seem a bit repetitive and predictable as the company doesn’t seem to have much to argue against that isn’t known already. What was funny at first now seems dull and expected as well especially since the campaign has been going on for some time. The only subtle change here (which was also found in the previous commercial) was the fact that Samsung seems to be portraying their users as hipsters as well. The irony here is quite hilarious as the company continues to imitate Apple users while flaunting the features of their device.

    For those of you who haven’t seen the previous advertisements that were a part of Samsung’ anti-Apple campaign, you can do so by clicking the following links: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

    What did you guys think of the new advertisement? Do any of you feel that this campaign is getting pretty old? Share any thoughts and comments below!

    It's so sad that they keep airing these ads when Apple is just destroying them in sales. Maybe they should go after someone in their own league say HTC or ummm. Blackberry.

    Oh and Samsung if your phones are so good then why are you releasing a Galaxy S III just a couple of months after the Galaxy S II’ release

    Whatever Samsung is doing with their advertisement tactics....WHO CARES?? It's obviously working or they wouldn't be doing it anymore. And whenever it ceases to become effective i'm sure they'll abandon that campaign as well. Apple is doing just fine and this site just reported the gargantuan amount of profit that Apple made last quarter....so honestly.....what the hell do Apple fans care about what Samsung is doing?

    Don't worry about what Samsung is doing with their advertising. Whining about how their commercials are repetitive isn't going to solve anything. Let them keep doing it and being in Apple's shadow and just focus on APPLE-RELATED news.

    Lol a couple of months? The data clearly shows that they are yearly releases, just like the iPhone.

    G1 - June 2010
    G2 - May 2011
    G3 - NOT OUT YET

    2G - June 2007
    3G - July 2008
    3GS - June 2009
    4 - June 2010
    4S - October 2011

    These were always stupid. Not to mention the obvious "flaws" that they are showing and the predictability of the commercials. They should have stopped before they even started.

    The first one was quite funny when I saw it... Reminded me of the PC vs. Mac commercials Apple had... but I expected a little more creativity with the subsequent ads... poking fun at apple or apple users should be ripe with possibilities... what ad agency did these? will have to make sure not to hire them.

    they could have gone after siri... or even drudged up antennagate... or played on the fact the apple carries samsung built components inside...

    anyway the S II looks great, but i just upgraded my old 3G to a 4S instead, and i'm very happy with it.

    Obviously you know nothing about business or marketing...

    Probably because they are innovative, thats why they release many different types of android. Had the iPhone 4 and 3G and I can tell you I am very happy with their phone. Not to mention the crap service you get with ATT. Not going to get a damn phone like the iPhone 4s just because its the hottest thing when the service is utterly crap. At least I won't be having to jailbreak or have no problems getting unlocked for free. Tell me you can do that with an iPhone at any time. Don't be such a fan boy with the iPhone, its not work all the hype bro.

    LOL "I just snagged us a camp site... 4g" sounds like the typical android drone... trying to use all the features of their phone without any cause for it. I use my phone as part of my life not go out of my way to use my phone.

    Are you referring to me? I did not post any link up. And neither did anyone else, if you're referring to the blog itself, then I'm sorry I misunderstood. Luckily, the youtube video works perfectly fine in the stock browser on my Samsung Infuse.

    It's what you do when you like something... Samsung has a big crush but they are still in grade school.

    I think it's more of an insult to Apple customers than the company itself.
