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.

The Apple commercials attack PC and thinly veiled attack on the users, the Mac cultists attack the users of PC and Android and deeming those that use 'em are inferior or irrational beings. Watch The Cult of Mac sometime... but then again you might not get it because you, yourself, is part of the cult.

The iPhone commercials are the same in nature as are the iPhone/ Apple cultists.

Outsells my ass! It's a free phone. I'm sure if Android gave away Galaxies for 99 cents they would "outsell" everyone too lmao.

Tony you're a trip.

And you're totally wrong, the ad is genius. Jobs is dead. Now is the PERFECT time to chip away at this ridiculous manufactured sub-culture he created. There's a word here that you're refusing to use; ignorance. The ad doesn't portray Apple's popularity, but only the ignorance of those who make it so.

The add can't really "fail", Samsung doesn't need it to succeed. Their sales are very strong already. Any customers gained, and there will be many, make it a success.

Had someone ask me the other day about the iphone 4s. I asked them why they were sure it was the phone for them. Their response: "well, it's the iphone, it's the best phone right?"

they were holding an evo, so I asked, "well, did you know the iphone is only a 3G device? and that it doesn't include turn by turn navigation?"

They didn't believe me. The moronic Apple subculture has managed to convince people that they are the end-all-be-all of devices. That's fine, IMO. Let the morons get an iPhone. I'm perfectly happy to have the CHOICE to purchase an android phone, and the CHOICE to customize it how I see fit.

Eh, sad but true... I'm sure if Apple rebranded an old winmobile 2k3se smartphone as the 'iPhone Zero' for free with a contract, they'd sell out instantly and hold up the entire low end market.

But, just because it's true doesn't make it any less ridiculous... lol
