Most human phone ever spawns worst commerical ever

Why, LG? Why? In trying to sell the G Flex it has come up with this, which honestly, we find difficult to put into words. LG's "most human phone ever" goes beyond the wacky in this terrible, terrible ad. Not that you actually see much of the phone in it.

As for the last 10 seconds...well, watch it and you'll find out. We've seen pretty horrendous efforts in recent times from the likes of Samsung, but this one might just have climbed to the top of the pile.

Yeah this is just uncomfortable it's so awful. Not to mention the ear and mouth are in the wrong places.

I love it! Its so cheesy that its amazeballs. I laughed because its just a fun commercial. Will it sell phones? No idea..but this is the first commercial I wanna share with people in a while.

"Amazeballs"? What are you, 10? This comment right here is why no one under the age of 25 should be directing commercials or marketing materials.

I'm 28 and you couldn't pay me to say that. And if you were here in front of me and said that, I'd punch you in the face...

They don't know how to design devices that make sense, I'm not sure why you'd expect their advertising to break from that. I think you'd do a better job of selling people on AIDS

Sometimes the best advertising comes from a commercial that gets people talking about a company. People are talking.

So? Then don't read his comments if you can't handle someone not liking your culture. You might work for AC but that doesn't mean you're above us.

Doesn't matter where you work or who you are. You shouldn't insult where someone is from. Can you imagine the backlash if I said something crappy about the U.S.?

We call them drones now for deniability sake

Well that's personal opinion. Not sure if just hitting each other and such is better then actually acting and having ideas. Hurting and beating each other really takes a lot of imagination and talent (roll eyes) like I said personal opinion.

Still Stooges are for ppl that don't like to think. Some brain deads just beating each other. A lot to understand and think about. I american and I like the smarter more clever humor not flat lame stuff. I can everyday if I want to see ppl beating each other up. Very much talent indeed to pull that off. Is like episode one. Stooge 1, beats on stooges 3. Stooge 3 beats on stooge 2. Stooge 2 on 1 and 3. Next episode. Its 3 beating on 2 and 2. Boo I wonder what happens in episode 4?

Yeah... Someone needs to get fired over this. I'm sure the putting the mouth and ear where they are was to make it not seem like the "phone" was upside down on his hand. Just SUPER creepy.
LG, that ad won't sell a SINGLE PHONE.

Horrid. Are these two dudes on a date?

Not commercial wise.

The person who made this must have been really into David Cronenberg.

Wow somebody finally took the crown for "worst phone commercial ever" from BlackBerry's Z10 "faster to show you what it doesn't do" commercial. Both don't show you jack except the guy in the blackberry commercial is doing gestures on an actual phone doing fictitious things.

While the commercial is shite... I get the message... Or at least I think I do. Which is, the phone is so amazing that you feel like you are there, to whoever you happen to be taking to. In this case some guy on the beach.

I'm gonna check for a mouth each time I answer my phone now...thanks for the new fear LG!

It's like watching a midget try to kick a soccer ball. You want to pull it aside and say something, but it's just too damn funny

This is a commercial you can enjoy if you intoxicated or stoned, unfortunately for LG most viewer will be sober when watching this eyesore.......

I kind of liked it. It's definitely unique and original. I wouldn't be all that surprised to see sequels and SNL skits.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaa.....cant....stop....laughing!!. .jeez....arent commercials supposed to make u WANT the product?

I feel like I need someone to hold me, but don't want anyone to touch me. That beard hand ear thing is very discomforting!

the worst EVERRRRRR!!! like i was expecting them to turn to the camera and say "LIVE FROM NEW YORK, .. .IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE !!!" but that never happened! :-( #fail

they could have done so many cool things like leaving the phone in a back pocket and sitting down and the phone surviving .. i dunno .. something .. anything but this angle!!!!!!!

Worst ad I've ever seen. Fire everyone in LG's marketing dept and ppl who signed off on this.

I'm pretty sure the commercial was awful on purpose so it would get talked about... And by the amount of comments on here it seems to have worked.

Awful. Just plain awful.

I was sitting here like "okay this is pretty bad", then I saw the last 10 seconds like Richard said, and then I was like "OMG this is horrible" lol

Wow. That really raises the bar for awful.
Not only is it horrid. It generates no interest in the phone.
They only mention one feature (self-healing).

Wow, this is so bad it's good! This is on par with Sharknado or a car wreck...so awful you have to watch it. I almost feel embarrassed for the (air-quotes) actors. Bahahahahahaha

Being creative and unique is often a good thing, but this is just dog shit. I like strange and weird, but the ending was completely unnecessary, I think we had enough once his hand turned into a talking vagina.

The only way I'd find humor in this, is if he shoved that mutant hand down a garbage disposal and cut the switch on.

Anyone else notice that he's talking into the mouth and listening to the ear instead of talking into the ear and listening to the mouth what the he l l

The phone is already over priced, too big, not practical plus difficult to sell. This ad will make selling it still more difficult IMHO
