when some fan puts things like this on Youtube, its fun. When the company makes somehting like this I just cant take the product serious anymore.

This. Serious customers just shrug their shoulders at such a spectacle. I mean, the device itself is not diminished by this, but such fail is not helping, either. I wonder who's idea was that and what the poor guy is facing in the company's future (if he/she has a future with Samsung at all).

Well, they may not have lost their hardcore customers, but they may very well have lost come casual customers. People who don't keep up with a product and/or a company who makes said product and their history may think the GS4 is just some silly badly overhyped, fad, product and not give it the close look it may deserve because of an ad like this.

I think people take this way to seriously come on, they have such a good phone that they can have some fun in their advertising.
PS. I don't own any Samsung items

When I hear another lame patronizing Apple add with that voice saying cliche saying. I just switch off. This add is about creating awareness and it might work. People will talk about it.

Lose causal browsers for sure. I remember buying Windows Phone because the Lumia tune was so good (One of the many factors). But I bought Samsung Omnia W (better bang per buck that time.

Being from India, I know who Ranveer Singh is you cannot expect much from a B-grade wannabe actor that Ranveer is. He portrays a bad-ass, care a hoot attitude in the 1-2 films he has been in (admittedly as a hero). Strange that Samsung would want to associate their brand with such types.

"Samsung uses popular music video Gangam Style for Advertising S4."
This obviously is not advertisement, it's shot on some Samsung event probably in India, whole video is dead give away. Oh and "UNCENSORED" in title also points toward such conclusion.

As someone who hails from that part of the world, let me chime in for a second. This is India. Over-the-top, cheesy, melodramatic and cringe-worthy acts are the norm here. It all "fits". That's nothing against the Indian culture, but it's just how bollywood has laid a playform that influences the culture there.
So eventho this makes us (westerners) facepalm, it might be a different reaction for the mainstream public in India.

Sounds like the Windows RT commercials.
