Samsung's New Ad for the Galaxy S III

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=2lpLGb1WW8E

I can safely say this is one of the worst commercials I have ever seen in my life.

Not a fan of the phone itself, but it's far from the worst commercial ever.

Not the worst. I would say the verizon droid commercials are worse.

Pretty bad. To be fair the iPhone ads are nearly equally as bad. People seem to have given up on making good adverts.

The "you don't have an iPhone" ads are pretty bad but I like the rest of the ones showcasing the features of the 4S, and especially the new ones with celebrities.

Just watched the Zooey Deschanel one for the first time... Did she really need to ask if it was raining?

Other than that, they're probably a little better than most iPhone ads.

The 3GS ones were shocking.

It's just your typical TV commercial. Nothing out of the ordinary.

The problem I have with these phone ads in general is they assume the intelligence level of the viewer is < 85 IQ.

Took the words out of my mouth, verizon always ruins the phones. I am a proud owner of s 2 and is going to be really interested on s 3 as well, always the best
