Samsung Makes Fun of the Super Bowl in New Commercial

By - Source: CNet | B 32 comments

It's that time of year, again.

The Super Bowl might be one of the biggest sports events of the year, but a lot of people only watch it for the commercials. Every year, companies spend millions upon millions of dollars just for a few seconds in front of one of the biggest television audiences available. Of course, you can't just use a regular commercial for the Super Bowl, there's got to be something whacky, weird, or memorable about it.

Samsung is known for its humorous commercials as it is, so we knew they must have something good planned for the Super Bowl. We figured the South Korean company would make fun of Apple, BlackBerry, or some other compeititor (it's certainly not held back in past commercials). We weren't expecting a commercial starring Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd to tease Super Bowl (or, rather, the commercialization of the Super Bowl). Oh, and for the Breaking Bad fans among us, it also stars Bob Odenkirk.

    +1 to the [Br]eaking [Ba]d reference.

    I think it would have been funnier if he said "Anybody, nobody, maybe some fruit up the street"

    Great commercial for people who get it. For everyone else I imagine it be lame. As for me I thought it was awesome.

    While i agree the word of should be there, i think this is one of those times where there not enough characters to fit in the title.

    If that's the case then i would of put something like, "Samsung makes fun of the super bowl in commercial" as "new" should be self implied.

    Basically, I'm saying if your mentioning commercial here, (unless stating other wise) everyone on tom's should guess it's a new commercial.

    They're basically taking a shot at Apple. I've got no problems with it. :D

    If the missing word is an issue of not having enough characters to fit it in. Then simply change the title to "Samsung makes fun of the Super Bowl." Let people find out the article is talking about a commercial when they click on it. You get a title that makes sense and it gets clicks because it makes people curious.

    The article content does not appear to relate to the commercial, unless the article writer is being obliquely witty by pretending to be deliberately oblivious to the obvious.The advert is nothing to do with the Super Bowl or its commercialisation. It's a reference to black rectangles with rounded corners.

    A while back the Superbowl owners raised hell about a church hosting an event with the games. Like sueing a local freaking church. Im not pro religion but that is just being a dick.
