watch the Super Bowl this Sunday with their first-ever Super Bowl ad
and newest device, the Galaxy Note. Samsung consumers will also enjoy a
heightened viewing experience with the Smart View app enabling their
phone and TV to automatically connect so not a moment of the game is
From start to finish Canadians are actively engaged in the game with few
interruptions allowed, except when it comes to the ads. Samsung
handpicked Bobby Farrelly to direct his first ever TV commercial.
Farrelly, along with his brother, Peter, created the famous comedy
films There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and Fever Pitch. In fact, part of the commercial was shot using the Galaxy Note's
HD-quality video camera for the ad, a Super Bowl first.
"The Super Bowl is the one chance each year to reach a massive audience,
and there's no better place than the biggest stage in sports,
entertainment and marketing to introduce one of the most exciting, new
products of the year," said Paul Brannen, Vice President and General
Manager, for Samsung Mobile Communications. "Everything about this
product launch campaign had to be as big as the Galaxy Note. We created
one of the longest ads of any Super Bowl advertiser this year and are
proud that our Canadian consumers will be able to enjoy it."
Capitalizing on consumer chatter, Canada has launched the 'The Next Big
Thing' prequel to one of the most talked about advertising spots in
this year's Super Bowl. It's also the perfect platform to launch the
hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note, a smartphone as big as the game
