Samsung Mocks Apple Fanboys in Galaxy S ll Commercial

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
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 find it more interesting that people queue for Apple products at all.
I assume Apple limits initial supply to create the demand for a queue in the first place. I also assume you can't just preorder like every other product on the planet. If I'm wrong, I don't understand it. I'd never waste my time standing in a queue all day and night to buy an overpriced overhyped wanky mobile phone. Even if I *really* wanted something that bad, I'd preorder and have it delivered to my door, or preorder at a store and pick it up when it arrived if they didn't deliver.
But hell, I guess if you enjoy the experience of waiting in a line with the possibility of meeting or having small talk with other evangelists who think the same way as you do I can see why people do it. Not all that different than lining up at a temple to pray.
Got to hand it to SJ and Apple marketing though. To create such faith in consumers is pretty impressive. I am certainly taking marketing/psychology tips from them. If I am ever start a company of my own, I will certainly keep in mind some of the techniques they use to create interest in their products.

Apple's products are well designed and therefore enjoyable and largely drama-free to use. I am always amazed at the contrast in usability between, say, my iPad, and virtually everything in my entertainment system (TV, receiver, etc.).
I am happy to pay more for products that are very well designed and of high quality.
People attacking fans of Apple products often seem to paint them as obnoxious, but I rarely see Apple fans making nasty comments about those who don't like Apple products. I wonder if the Apple haters are creative enough to notice the irony? ;)
