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.

Check it out for youselves:

We all thought it was stupid when Apple did it MS even though MS dominated the market no matter what marketing spin/magic Apple used.

How is this any different.... Just makes them look stupid by lowering themselves to Apple stupid marketing tactics.

To all those saying how good Andriod is because it is an open environment. You know what, the people who genuinely care about open environments do not make up the vast majority of smart phone users, so stop trying to push that as a must have advantage. Most people just don't care. Flash was probably a better argument but Adobe has put an end to that one.

I wish both Andriod and Apple users would stop slagging off people for choosing one or the other.... Do you really care what some anonymous person chooses to make calls with really!
