Industry leaders are saying that this could easily be the best TV commercial Samsung has ever made… and we couldn’t agree more.


We could be a little biased seeing as the brand ambassador is from our continent, but we’re sticking with industry leaders on this one.

Usually when an animal gets something caught on its head, it isn’t great news. But in Samsung’s new charming ad for Samsung, it’s a dream come true.

Samsung’s commercial for the Gear VR is quite something. With Elton John’s “Rocket Man” playing in the background, the video tells the inspiring story of an ostrich that tries to fly—and features, of course, the Samsung Gear VR headset.

The ad was released a little over a week ago and has already racked up 18 million views… not too shabby and Industry leaders are calling it the best commercial Samsung have ever made.

“Samsung knows a thing or two about making TV commercials that go viral online, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Samsung’s ads are always great. However, that might change in the future. At the end of its Galaxy S8 Unpacked event, the company played an awesome TV commercial that’s easily the best phone ad the company has ever made.” – BGR

“The ostrich, clearly, is perfect, both as a creature that might fulfill its own destiny via VR and as a metaphor for Samsung itself—a grounded bird that’s become a bit of a joke, but could soar if it only just believes.” – Adweek
