Samsung Commercial Poking Fun at Apple Ipad Air
Samsung has just posted a 'pencil' ad of its own, mocking the original and the Apple iPad Air. The Samsung ad notes that the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is thinner than the iPad Air and can multitask.
Samsung is seriously poking fun at Apple with the commercial for its new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 tablet.
When the iPad Air first launched, Apple wowed us by showing how the device was thinner than a pencil. Samsung's parody of this iconic ad reveals that its new tablet is even thinner than the iPad Air, plus it has a sharper screen and multi-task capabilities.
Check out the cheeky new commercial:
Another spot, this time for the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, is a direct assault on iPad Air "pencil" commercial. "It's an extremely simple tool, but also... extremely pointy," says Samsung's voice-over actor. (And no, it's not Bryan Cranston this time.) "It's been used to make tentative appoints, and to cheat at golf." Eventually the camera reveals Apple's latest iPad, but there's another device behind it — the "even thinner" Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.
Samsung claims its own tablet is superior for watching video, and naturally the ad also trumpets the Galaxy Tab Pro's multitasking prowess. "Two things on screen at once versus up to one thing on screen at once." While it temporary veered away from the strategy, clearly Samsung has still feels a need to chip away at its chief rival — and it's not alone. You'll find both Samsung's ad and Apple's original commercial embedded below.
