Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd Tease Super Bowl Ad For Samsung’s “Next Big Thing” (Video)

Well, it’s that time of year again and I’m not talking about the Super Bowl.  I’m referring to that time of year when everyone’s wondering what’s Samsung got under their sleeve now?  Check out the teaser below where Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen, two of Hollywood’s funniest comedians team up to bring you this year’s Super Bowl ad for Samsung’s “Next Big Thing“.

Dubbed “The Big Game”, this multi-million dollar spot will air at half time for this year’s kick-off between the San Francisco “50 minus 1ers” and the Baltimore “Blackbirds.”  Who? Yeah, it’s gotten a little nuts but check out the video of the teaser below and it’ll all make sense.  And as usual, in typical Samsung style, our curiosity is peaked once more as we’re dying to know what the mega smartphone manufacturer is going to showcase.  Here’s to being patient for the day to arrive and if history has any indication, we’re sure they’ll take a little bite out of Apple during the air.  I’m really looking forward to that. Samsung has proven before their ads can be effective with the launch of the Galaxy S III and Note/Note II devices. Not only were people walking around saying “dude, you’re a Barista” for months, but it’s definitely swayed many towards the larger screen when push came to shove. I think the numbers can attest to that.




About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
