Microsoft pulled at our heartstrings with adorable little girls, so Samsung went full-bore into the double dog dare of the advertising world. They released a commercial full of cute animals.
The only thing Samsung got wrong with this advertisement for the S8300 Ultra Touch was that they went for humorous instead of cute. Cute always trumps funny in the ad world. Just examine this little chart I assembled that explores the relationship of funny pets and kids to cute pets and kids.
I don't mean to be a dick about it, but someone from Samsung's ad firm should really get fired for missing a golden opportunity here. [Thanks Jamie!]
