Commercial shows Apple fans camped out for the iPhone 4S, marveling at the Samsung Galaxy S II

The past year's events have made it pretty clear that Apple and Samsung aren't the best of friends. Apple initially accused Samsung of copying Apple's iPhone and iPad designs when developing the Galaxy line, and a long list of lawsuits have been launched back and forth ever since around the globe.

Apple may have successfully killed Samsung's sales in some countries outside the U.S., but Samsung isn't going to take this lying down. In its latest commercial for the Galaxy S ll, Samsung makes fun of Apple fanboys by portraying a scene where they're all waiting in line hours in advance for the next release. While waiting, the fanboys are noticing passerby with phones that are "magnificent," and of course the phones in question are Galaxy S ll's.

The fanboys make pompous comments while waiting in line, such as "If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded?" and an exchange between two fanboys that goes as follows:

Fanboy 1: I could never get a Samsung, I'm creative.

Fanboy 2: Dude you're a barista.

I'm curious what the 9hrs countdown is for when the advert was clearly made in broad daylight. Is there some secret moonshine launch shit that the rest of the world doesn't know about?

Not exactly a viral classic, could have been done more memorably.

The classic Grand Release "You cannot get it until Friday, sorry ... stores open at 12:01A on Friday"

Maybe Apple does it differently, they are Apple after all, but any major chain promoting a product that has people lining up hours in advance will do a midnight launch to comply with the manufacturer's restriction on initial sale date.

Check out Best Buy's Black Friday door busters. You had better be lined up Thursday at three if you want to get one of the 10 tablets/4 keyboard docks that will be advertised as limited stock loss leaders.
