Press TV, have the below comment on the above advert.





Head of Majlis Energy Committee Arsalan Fat'hipour said the double-urgency plan, aimed at imposing a complete ban on buying all Samsung products, would make the company regret making the insulting teaser.

South Korea's giant manufacturer of electronic devices and home appliances produced a teaser shortly after the assassination of the Iranian scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan by Mossad agents in Tehran, in which Iran had been depicted as a primitive society.

You can see why they would be upset.

Can you imagine a Insurance company using 911 as a back drop to sell life insurance.

Some things should be off the table.

Everyone os sooooo sensitive!

If we can't laugh at ourselves... Who can we laugh at?

Is this any different than an American ad poking fun at beer drinking overweight males ( myself included)?

How about a German running around in lederhosen?(because I'm sure all Germans run arounf in lederhosen!)?

Next thing parent groups are going to be upset with the E-Trade "talking baby" commercials and claim that their toddler was offended by the slight!

Lighten up people!

Love

Edit: S&F because it was funny no matter what language that was in. I would have written the scrip the same way!

I wish it was in English, but I get the jist of it.

Iran is just a collective group of crybabies.

It's a commercial for an Israeli cable network operator that's giving away a free tablet for joining it, I doubt samsung has anything to do with this commercial other than its name being mentioned in it.

Also while I may not find it extremely funny, I don't find it seriously offensive in any way..

Eliad.
