Two great things happened during yesterday's NFL playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. First, the Pats won and will return to the Super Bowl. And second, I saw two classic new Samsung Galaxy S II ads I'd never seen before, "Samsunged" and "Urban camping." They're worth watching. You know, if you have a sense of humor.
Of course one thing has changed since the ads first debuted in November 2011: Samsung, not Apple, is now the bigger maker of smart phones. Guess the ads worked. Either that or the perceived self-importance of waiting in line has finally worn thin.
Either way, enjoy. These new ads are classic.
Key quotes: "Ahhh... That looks like last year's phone!" and "We just got Samsunged!"
Key quotes: "You two look happy. With your phones." "We're notgoing real camping ... We've got to get in line to get the new phone. So excited."
Update: There's a third new Samsung ad, which I didn't happen to see during the game. But thanks to a number of email replies about this, I present it below:
Type With Your Voice Key quotes: "My hands are so cold, I can't even blog! ... Can't afford to lose anymore followers." "Samsung again... this keeps happening."
