Samsung Mocks Apple Sycophants in Latest Ad

This is just precious. A new Samsung advertisement goes after the trendy hipster types that stand in line for hours to buy new Apple products, even though in this case--with the iPhone 4S--there are superior devices out there already. The ad nicely parodies the whole Apple Store line experience--you know, because they may not make enough of them, so you better get in line.

My favorite sequence is the hipster who dismissively says, "I could never get a Samsung. I'm creative." To which the guy next to him responds, even more dismissively, "Dude, you're a barista." LOL.

Classic because it's true.

And to be clear, this little moment, from the background of a scene in the ad, is fricking brilliant:


PS: I am vaguely distraught that the Samsung lock screen shown in this ad is clearly a rip-off of the Windows Phone lock screen design. Classic Android.
