Samsung Commercial Apple Bashing

It’s never easy to understand foreign television commercials without knowing the local language and culture, but nothing is lost in translation in Samsung’s latest TV spot in Iceland. The ad begins with a man trying repeatedly to make phone calls on his Apple. Not on an iPhone, but on an actual Apple. Needless to say, this doesn’t work out very well and he grows depressed. But then, the man finds himself with a Samsung Galaxy S4 and all his problems are solved — so he dances with four burglars and a sheep to celebrate. The ad closes with the man taking a big bite out of an Apple while holding a Galaxy S4 to his ear, and the sheep seems to approve. The full video can be seen below.
