Either I don't get it or that's really lame... possibly both.

sublimaze says:

It's just more PR propaganda that reveals absolutely nothing about the product. Samsung will probably release half a dozen similar videos between now and March 14.

no you were right, it was lame. I like it better when they were doing those commercials making fun of the Apple hipsters in barista's. At least those were witty.

Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online.(Click Home information)

This troll is more entertaining than that video.

mwara244 says:

So MikeBale5, are you a sex cam worker, that is exactly what you described.

Has to be one of their worst ads... EVER!

birdman_38 says:

The shining effect when he peeked into the box was really cheesy

I'm sorry. That was a terrible teaser. :(

At least HTC showed glimpses of their phone.

altechi says:

At least it's better than Sony's and HTC's........wait have they even released one?.

Another Rolls Royce complete with shiny painted plastic doors, plastic windows, plastic wheel trims and plastic pretty much everywhere else.. I can't wait.....

Sarcasm noted. :)

buffdaddy72 says:

Wow very impressive!

HUEHUEHUE says:

Oh boi, am i a terrible person if i was kinda wishing they'd show the boy good ol' d***-in-the-box trick? "Ok, you can have just one little peek..." ZING!

BerryWizard says:

I've got bad news for you.....and besides, for those saying that it's lame : the add does what it should, bringing the maximum interest on the incoming phone.

Jayshmay says:

This does absolutely nothing to get me excited about
the S4!!!. . .Nothing!

Besides, the S4 isn't going to have the Snapdragon 800.

Do you think that the phone that the guy put away when the kid walked in is the S4?

Looks rather large. I am guessing it was the Note 2.

Gekko says:

Pulp Fiction briefcase.

KineticMD says:

What does Jeremy Maxwell LOOK LIKE?

DOES HE LOOK LIKE A BITCH?

Love the response. :)

I'd fan you if I could on this site.

eszklar says:

Sorry. Not impressed with this whatsoever. Every freaking second was annoying. Especially the kid and douche-bag looking exec.

Sonicaholic says:

Maybe it's just me, but I think it's a pretty good advertising ploy , it has the hallmark of everyone out there anticipating the release of the most ppopular android phone line. It could quight easily have been one of our very well known bloggers given the task... Secrecy contract in 1 hand & the box in the other with the biggest grin you could imagine.

Suntan says:

I'd tend to agree.

What is it? A low dollar Youtube video created to keep a little attention between MWC and the actual unpacking event. Also, it's targeted at the larger market of regular people that can just take it for what it is; a little silly, over the top, humor involving kids.

No, it's not a video targeted at the tech nerds. No wonder everyone here is so antsy about it.

Agreed, I think it's a good ad.

Adirolfx says:

Must be radio-active, because it glows... :D

Sonicaholic says:

Or maybe the 4.99" full HD super amoled screen was "ON" ;-)

Screw you guys... I thought it was clever... lol. But nonetheless had nothing to do with the actual product. Like every teaser ever made.

Sonicaholic says:

Exactly, no info what so ever no real teasers but weather you love or hate it, it's got you all talking about it!

CoronaDoug says:

Making fun of hipsters is so much better. I guess they are now trying to win over the soccer moms that carry iPhones.

XavierMatt says:

HTC One here I come.

Not related whatsoever.

Statusnone says:

And on this day, the amount of f***s that were given, amounted to zero.

DanSan says:

go back to making funny ads about isheep and how stupid they are. worked a lot better.

I have to disagree. If you denigrate those whom you want to be future customers, then this will create more intransigence.

Cue the Brad Pitt meme....WHATS IN THE BOOOOOOOOOOOX!!!!

CoronaDoug says:

Step 1) Cut a hole in the box.

ChimeraX73 says:

So can we gather from this that the display will be even more blinding in low light? ;)

JHock08 says:

Okay this add is terrible and confusing. I'm not saying I have to be wowed but this is just weird.

buffdaddy72 says:

Meh, more mindless teasers.

Averix says:

Terrible. I hate when companies use kids to advertise products that are not meant for kids. Makes it seem childish and foolish.

svinyard says:

I'm fine with all of this as long as Samsung really delivers. I do think its funny how everyone moans about the plastic when the real design flaw was the garbage glass they used. My wife HTC EVO LTE (takes MASSIVE amounts of abuse in purses, kids etc) hardly has a scratch on it while my damn S3 looks like a T-Rex has been chewing on it for 6 months. I just don't get it. Anyways, here is hoping its awesome and not just a lame refresh.

I thought of Seven..... hahahaha

tohio says:

Ha Ha. Everyone complaining about the commercial is doing exactly what Samsung intended: getting people to notice and comment about the S 4. Any publicity is good publicity in the marketing world. Samsung thanks you naysayers.

Suzanne77 says:

Maybe Samsung are insinuating that this phone will make you feel like a child again. Excited about what might be in the box, anticipating something amazing!Not wanting anyone else to see or touch until you've had the chance to enjoy it. Let's hope we're not let down lol!

And like most I wanted just a glimpse of the phone so I can decide whether I should wait or get the Xperia Z! Going to have to wait a little longer to compare... ah well!

Chex313 says:

If you look very closely you can see the reflection of what's in the box in the kids eyes...Just a bunch of paper and a light. You would think they could have at least put the real S4 in there!

Gearu says:

That was atrocious. And the 3 people who spoke in that commercial were a terrible casting choice.

I'm expecting to be disappointed.

Funny that some mention the light in the box and screen brightness... I know someone with an S3 and it only took a few seconds to be unimpressed with how dull the screen was at maximum brightness, the S3's Super AMOLED HD has nothing on the S2's Super AMOLED Plus, so what they need to do is combine both into... Super AMOLED HD Plus...

Strider2112 says:

You people really don't know what the s4 will look like? It is a smart phone, it will look like every other one on the market lol.

SWon says:

Following the rumors that s4 will have many versions. I am assuming that the kid on the video means there will be a mini version of s4 also. Just a guess.
