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.

So let's see.

Apple's iPad newest commercial shows off the product being used in many different scenarios: a guy designs a car with an iPad, a band uses an iPad as a mixer, and a painter paints.

Samsung Android commercial shows how iPhone users are such a douche and the only time it talks about its own product were it has a bigger screen and an ambiqous 'amazing' quote. That's all? Nothing about apps available for the phone? Or faster graphics? Ease of use? Better camera?

Are Android users so desperate about their phones that the only way to justify their ownership is insulting iPhone owners?

Are Android users so idiotic that they buy their phones based solely on the image Samsung is promoting that iPhone users (not the phone but the users) are douchebags?

"hey as long as they bash Apple, i'll buy their product!"
That's how the Android users think?
