    Its funny and all but I don't think its smart marketing all it does is drive all the apple fans farther from your product

    I'm not one to wait in line for anything so perhaps I don't understand, but I would think it will make them feel self conscious rather than hate Samsung. After all, many of them are choosing aesthetics and brand image over functionality which means they are buying these phones to be hip and cool. Me thinks this type of consumer has a low self esteem and buys this sort of phone to be accepted by their peers. These commercials are pointing out that it's not hip or cool to stand in line for overpriced tech jewelery.

    I think most people in here enjoy it because it's such a blatant poke in Apple's ribs. Yes, it's silly...but that's how a lot of "outsiders" see Apple fans (and yes, I've waited in line at an Apple store before...for Jaguar). It's childish, but it's clever. It's cartoonish, but it's accurate. Many dichotomies to appreciate. And we know it's going to **** off Apple, and that makes it even better.

    My favorite part is when the dude's parents show up and thank him for holding their place in line. That's even funnier to me because my mom bought an iPhone 4S about six months ago...so it's definitely spreading into the older demographics.

    Thats actually a good thing for Apple! As I always like to point out to people, it serves its purpose.

    Remember those "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC ads"? Looks like Apple's finally on the receiving end. Yes the ad is a bit obvious, but most of the people who buy Apple products can't distinguish between marketing and reality anyway.

    The more hardcore fans sure... The casual fans probably don't even care. My Apple loving friends find it funny but they also find it silly to camp outside a store for a damn phone.

    Love it. Hilarious. Just like the other guy said... it reminds me of the Mac vs PC commercials Apple used to put out but with phones and Apple in the receiving end. Perfect

    Ok, first off I have waited in line not once, but twice for Apple products. I waited for iPad2 and iPhone 4S. I am not a lemming, however I wanted to experience the hype for the fun of it. When I bought my iPad3 I pre-ordered and had it shipped.

    With that said, I laughed my a$$ off when I saw this spot. My wife actually pointed it out to me and had me look it up on Youtube. I had seen this post, but skipped by it. My wife thinks it is brilliant and funny too. She is a HUGE Apple fan. I asked her if she now wants my phone. She said no, but not quite as forcefully as before, lol!!!
