Samsung Stages a “Protest” at Australian Apple Stores Telling Customers to “Wake up”

It’s no secret that Samsung has targeted Apple in its marketing campaigns, but Sammy’s latest stunt appears to have taken things to another level. Recently, Samsung employed a marketing firm by the name of Tongue to stage a “protest” at an Australian Apple store. Samsung’s bizarre marketing ploy resulted in a large black bus filled with protesters chanting “WAKE UP.” Check out the video below to get a look at the action.

In addition to the phony protest, a website called Wake up Australia has launched, which features an ominous countdown to what appears to be Samsung’s announcement of its next Galaxy smartphone. Australia is a particularly volatile market for Apple and Samsung; the two firms have fought numerous legal battles there and Apple successfully blocked Samsung from advertising the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia late last year.
