Samsung’s Galaxy Gifts commercial showers people with happiness

galaxy_tab_s_commercial_galaxy_giftsDoes bloatware make people happy? Probably not. Galaxy Gifts, though, really make people happy. So happy that they cannot contain themselves. Galaxy Gifts just has that kind of effect. In a new commercial promoting the Galaxy Tab S, people are showered with joy due to the freebies and promotions that Samsung includes with its latest tablet.
