Samsung’s new television ad for their Galaxy S II smartphone focuses on ridiculing Apple customers who wait in line for hours to get an iPhone.
The ad depicts line of white earbud-clad customers lined up behind barricades, noting that it’ll still be hours before they get in the door. They notice a man carrying a Samsung Galaxy S II, and remark about the phone’s large screen and “4G speed.”
It’s worth noting, though, that even in Samsung’s ad, the Apple customers don’t get out of line.
Samsung’s envy is understandable – they were practically giving their Galaxy S II phones away in Sydney, Australia the week that Apple released the iPhone 4S, yet they couldn’t muster a fraction of the interest that the iPhone 4S generated.
