Microsoft’s new Windows Phone ad tells Apple and Samsung fans to stop fighting

samsung-apple-wars

Microsoft has created what I consider a brilliant new Windows Phone ad that tells Apple and Samsung followers to stop arguing with each other all the time. It’s true that the Android vs. iOS battle has evolved nowadays into an Apple vs. Samsung battle. Microsoft says, “Don’t fight. Switch.” and just buy a Windows Phone handset instead.

The ad takes place at a wedding. The groom’s side of the wedding all own Galaxy phones and the bride’s side all have iPhones. When someone with a Galaxy phone takes a picture, an iPhone user on the other side makes a snarky comment about how big it is. They start going back and forth until everyone at the wedding is throwing fists. Two people who seem to be working at the wedding stand calmly together as they use their Nokia Lumia 920 phones.

It’s not very often you hear the terms “Microsoft” and “brilliant new advertisement” together in one sentence, but this Windows Phone ad is really just quite well done. It gives off a good impression that Windows Phone is superior while all the inferior little brats argue, so to speak. I’m reminded of the “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” episode of the Twilight Zone when the humans destroy themselves with their own fighting and finger-pointing while the aliens end up getting to sit back and watch effortlessly.

But enough chit chat. You can watch the Windows Phone ad in its entirety right here.

      Seriously, then whose better? If anything Google or Apple comes out if your mouth then i know the problem.

        Sorry if i hurt your feelings. Have fun changing the color and size of your tiles.

          No, I’m having fun enjoying an OS that allows me to enjoy enjoy my information in a cohesive, concise manner across devices. It also allows me to bring forth any information i desire important in a glance manner. Just because you’re an idiot you think your jealous comment has any effect on anyone reading. Plz go and enjoy your os of choice. Obviously ppl like you don’t appreciate something, or cabt wrap your little brain around.
