Samsung hits comedy gold... again

Samsung knows a good thing when it sees it. The company struck gold with its TV commercials mocking iPhone users late last year. The commercials depicted rabid Apple fans that wait in long lines to snap up the latest iteration of the iPhone.
 
Over the weekend, Samsung upped the ante with a print ad that directly went after Apple's new iPhone 5.
 
And now, Samsung is ready for a second round of "Apple Mockery" TV advertising. If the first commercials were amusing to you, this one is sure to tickle your funny bone as well. 

Here are some choice quotes:

"They're saying this phone is going to be like a precious jewel"
"All I'm saying is they should have a priority line for people that have waited 5 times"

The GS3 doesn't draw people in "because it is a GS3" in the way people buy an iPhone because they think it is "hip". The GS3 really IS a great device, while EVERYONE pretty much agrees that the iPhone 5 is only somewhat better than the iPhone 4s with questionable advantages over the top end Android phones.

I am not saying the iPhone 5 isn't a good device, but is it AMAZING compared to the Galaxy S3? If it isn't heads and shoulders BETTER, than sales numbers are more about hype at this point, or they would be closer to the Galaxy S3. Note that Samsung is working to generate more hype to get people who are prone to purchase due to hype to go that way, but it is NOT the current driving force.
