Samsung to air first-ever Super Bowl ad for Galaxy Note

21

Just as we suspected last week, Samsung plans to run a Super Bowl ad this Sunday for the Galaxy Note.  The commercial, which will air in the fourth quarter, is directed by Hollywood director Bobby Farrelly  and will run 90 seconds.  As the guy behind There’s Something About Mary, Kingpin, and Dumb and Dumber (among others), we’re thinking we might be in for something more than a little funny.

Samsung Launching Revolutionary Galaxy Note Super Phone with 90-second Super Bowl Commercial

DALLAS – January 31, 2012 – Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S.1, is launching a revolutionary super phone, the Galaxy Note™ in the first-ever Super Bowl ad in the technology giant’s 71-year history.

“During the past six months we’ve launched the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus and now the Galaxy Note super phone in North America bringing unparalleled innovation to the marketplace,” said Todd Pendleton, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung Telecommunications America.  “The Galaxy Note ushers in the era of truly personalized communications, allowing people to capture, share and create like never before.”

The game changing Galaxy Note required a launch platform just as significant which is why Samsung chose the largest event in North America to unveil this product – Super Bowl XLVI.

Samsung handpicked  Bobby Farrelly to direct his first ever TV commercial.  Farrelly, along with his brother, Peter, created the famous comedy films There’s Something About MaryDumb and DumberKingpin and Fever Pitch.

The Galaxy Note ad will air during the 4th quarter of Super Bowl XLVI on February 5th.
