This Samsung Commercial is Disturbing and Hilarious

The acting in this Samsung commercial for their new SSD reminds of those late night local car ads, except a lot more expensive. Is it the woman who appears to be on the verge of a stroke with every word? Or maybe the "gamer guy" who forgot to put lenses in his glasses. Or hell, maybe it's the "office guy" who appears to be doing the commercial at gun point. Either way, check it out at your own risk.

I want to know what game the "gamer guy" was play. Also EH-VO?

@oscar__explosion: I thought it looked a little bit like Bayonetta in Anarchy Reigns, but I don't think that's what it was.

@alanm26v5: Thanks! See, it ended up being gaming related after all.

WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING THIS WHOLE TIME?

A HARD-drive? For the KOM-POO-TER? Like those things my kids play pong on? Great!

edit-- HOLY CHRISTMAS! Does that thing really cost $777?? (499 pounds). Who in the world really needs it that badly?

This is some of the worst acting that I've ever seen.

Mothers who use their computers to look at pictures of their children, obviously.

At one point she not only looks confused, but a little bit frightened.

I like the guy who has to re-install his OS every few months. Top-tier computer user.

I love that out of those three, they have the mother that only uses a computer to look at pictures of her kids as the one to install an internal drive in a laptop.

"Wow this is, so, light?!"

"Look i did it?! I feel like, an, expert!?"

Somebody needs to fire their marketing department, wtf demographic do they think this thing is going to appeal to?

That is the single most remarkable thing I've ever watched.

Evidently, Samsung has been taking this video down everywhere they can. As of right now, this is the only place you can see it on YouTube.

I dunno... sure, I can look at pictures of MY children, but what about other people's chi- err... an SSD, you say?

Don't believe me? creepy samsung stuff..

"I'm going to need your excitement to be about a three, and right now it's about eleven, mkay, good."

@mlarrabee: Yeah, I can't fault the actors too much. The fact they all 3 actors have almost the exact same cadence and reactions tells me this is what the director and PR people were going for.

I have a Samsung SSD. It's the best thing I've ever experienced in my entire life, but this ad is hyperbolic and I hate hyperbole more than cancer and Hitler combined.

Posted by jaycrockett

Those people are just...off, in a way I can't define. Are they bad actors? From some country I've never heard of? Have an intellectual disability or neurological condition? Maybe they are CG? No idea.

Still I absolutely want that SSD. If that malfunctioning stepford wife can put it in her laptop, I can too! I want to feel like an expert!

All of these androids run on Samsung's new SSD. Also, that is such a foolish woman. Why can't you understand computers like us men?

The Asian has to install a whole new operating system when Premiere Pro crashes? That's devastating.

I hate having to install a new operating system. I can't tell you how many copies of Windows 7 I've gone through because my of HDD.

I feel like I'm watching an infomercial from the future.
