Samsung Still Thinks iPhone Users Are Lame and Slow

Lawsuits are so passe. Clever, thinly veiled taunts of your competitor’s customer base are where it’s at! Or so Samsung Mobile would have us believe – just like Apple did a few years back, mind you – with their current spate of TV spots for the Galaxy S II line of smartphones.

The latest clip digs at iPhone’s lack of support for 4G data networks. Take a gander and see how many obvious Apple references you can find. And then let us know in the comments: Do these spots make you laugh, annoy you, or sail right over your BlackBerry-toting head?

Me, I kind of like ’em. It’s fun to see Apple be fed a taste of their own medicine, and it’s always good to see a well-made cell phone commercial. Years of suffering through “The Creepy Palm Lady” and “The Endlessly Annoying/Scary Droid Robot” and “Yet Another Confusing and Pointless Sprint Ad” have made me nostalgic for “T-Mobile’s Wiseass Kid Brother.” Huzza to Samsung for hiring an ad agency who knows what they’re doing, if nothing else.
