Samsung could have made an advertisement video focusing on the core features of their new flagship Samsung ES8000 Smart TV which includes cutting edge new features like voice and gesture control, and face recognition. Or, they could use the tried and true method of using a woman wearing little in the way of clothing. Which one did they go with? Just guess.
After watching this video, you might be wondering to yourself – “Was that the guy from the Old Spice commercials?” Yes, I believe it is, apparently in the same towel, though it looks like his horse was in the stable during filming.
I guess I can understand the guys’ confusion, though – Victoria’s Secret model Angela Bellotte doesn’t appear to be making much in the way of eye contact with the smart television. Well, that, and who watches television standing up? It’s enough to make any guy stop what he is doing, go buy flowers, and make way to a woman’s apartment in earnest!
You might think this video is a little too overt with the whole sex sells deal, but you’d be missing out on the nuance and subtlety present. You’d also be remiss in overlooking the beautifully creative touch of an apartment numbered 69. Very clever.
Wait, what was this post about again? Samsung’s Smart TVs? Oh, that’s right. You know, they have gesture control now. Amazing things, those Smart TVs. I could list all the ways they are amazing, but for some reason, I just can’t stop thinking about how badly I want to order a pizza.
