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.

Haha didn't even realize that. Maybe I was too shocked at what I was watching.

deadpenguins says:

Ugh, among all the other things that bothered me, this one was the worst.

nolan.b says:

This is horrible. And agreed with the previous comment, definitely top word commercial of all time.

ronnypoo says:

wtf how does this make any sense?

Best part? Someone got paid for this idea!

And they'll never work in the industry again if they put it on their resume.

Well I don't know what I even just watched... wow

oddom says:

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.

Posted via Android Central App

You said amazeballs ;-)

NoNexus says:

NO it is not even ... its GonorrheaBalls

"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.

oddom says:

You don't like to say amazeballs? What are you like 70?

Bwahahahaha says:

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...

Agree. It's the UHF of commercials.

Agreed. Its pretty awesome sauce.

I watched it again, even funnier the second time.

Omg wtf this is a pos ad for an awesome phone. LG please fire your whole marketing team and start over

Saneless says:

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

twolastnames says:

The flex is kinda awesome. The G2 is kinda awesome. This commercial is kinda awesome.



Posted via Android Central App

Surely they hired out a third party for this. Most large companies do.

Edit: Oh and the G2 is a great phone.

cacarr says:

It's a nice piece of hardware. That skin of theirs is hideous, though.

jeffreyh51 says:

OMG! This is so bad and offensive, that it may turn folks off to LG.

balthuszar says:

Not sure what's offensive... Not saying you're wrong, I'm just confused

DroidOn says:

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

British humor. i'll take the Three Stooges over Monty Python any day!

And what exactly is wrong with British humor?! This ain't no Monty Python. 

Gekko says:

the same thing that's wrong with British food, women, weather, and dental care - it's no good!

I'd be careful how far you go with that...remember I AM BRITISH

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.

rlbrooks says:

What does culture have to do with this article?

Posted via Android Central App

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.?

eahinrichsen says:

You would be attacked by a dozen bald eagles, which would be immediately released from the US embassy in London.

NoNexus says:

We call them drones now for deniability sake

You really should see the crap I don't post. Sorry if honesty offends you

Something crappy about the USA? Where to begin???

That's OK then. I like Americans too. (Mostly :P)

That commercial is almost as despicable as those arrogant xenophobic little green lizards.

paul-c says:

Um, Kate Beckinsale is British.

dante501 says:

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.

I doubt that if you were to imitate them with 2 friends you wouldn't do nearly as good.

dante501 says:

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?

dante501 says:

Maybe stooges are to dumb or I am to smart for it.

It's 2014. You don't have to decide. You can torrent both. And both are great.

wpavlik2 says:

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.

Certainly didn't make me want one any more than already....

That was the absolute worst POS that I have seen ever

No the worst pos is probably the iPhone lol. Well maybe the lg vu. But iPhone is close.

NoNexus says:

Not commercial wise.

This made me want to go and buy a Vu

You really should see the crap I don't post. Sorry if honesty offends you

Well the stupid Sonic and the cheesy Apple commercials come in mind as pos commercials.

TooJawsome says:

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.

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

alc2077 says:

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

GrooveRite says:

HAHAHAHAH sooo true!!!

jdbii says:

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

mcm180 says:

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!!!!!!!

good one i agree this makes you not buy the phone. it makes you run away. very bad move from LG

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

Qoheleth says:

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 awful you have to watch it. I almost feel embarrassed for the (air-quotes) actors. Bahahahahahaha

Not sure what I watched, but after 15 seconds of watching two guys act like douches, I changed channels.

ryan5609 says:

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.

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