I’m a fan of Apple products, but I’m in no way an Apple “fanboy”. I’m a fan of good technology, and I’m also a fan of comedy. When something’s legitimately funny, I’ll laugh – it doesn’t matter who utters the punch line. If you’ve followed the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 during the last week, you’ll know there’s been some ups and some downs – some serious highs and some valley lows. Not only did Apple set records with their pre-sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but now they’re also having to do major damage control due to some unfortunate circumstances. On Wednesday of this week, they released the abysmal iOS 8.0.1 update which causes many of their new phones to become utterly useless. They have since removed the update. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, now they are having to respond to criticisms that some of the newest iPhone models are bending while worn inside of tight pockets. That’s correct – people wearing skinny jeans are discovering their iPhones are a completely different shape when they remove them from their pockets. That’s a little embarrassing. But it’s also hilarious, and Samsung has wasted no time in making fun of the problem for all its worth. Take a look at their newest ad below.
This is one of the most effective images I’ve ever seen. In case you’re wondering who/what the iPhone is bowing down to, its the GALAXY Note Edge.
Go ahead. Laugh away. Even if you’re an Apple fan, you have to admit it’s funny.
