Samsung Takes A Dig At Apple Fans In New AdBy: Shaylin Clark - January 20, 2012
Samsung has released a new ad making fun of iPhone fans.

It shows a group of would-be iPhone buyers waiting in line outside an Apple store, talking with a hipster (complete with fixed-gear bike) about his Samsung Galaxy S II phone. When they realize that his phone comes with turn-by-turn navigation functionality built in, one of them says “We just got Samsunged.” Yes, “Samsunged.” Check it out for yourself below:
