Samsung’s new ad “note” a dig at Apple, “note”-iceably funny

Just when we've despaired that Samsung would never come out with an ad that will not disparage its competitors (and when we say competitor, of course we mean Apple), the OEM surprises us with a hilarious, if a bit long, video. The almost 4 1/2 minute video is a refreshing ad for the Galaxy Note 4 that banks on sense of humor rather than just poking fun at Apple products and hopefully heralds the dawn of a new kind of campaign for its smartphones and tablets. Well, at least when it comes to advertising.

The device is in startup mode right now, crowdsourcing its capital – but the premise is kinda awesome. The device is targeted at athletes, sports pros, or on-the-go business and corporate people who want their technology bleeding edge and easily accessible through wireless.
