Samsung has a history of mocking Apple products as a way of trumpeting the value of its devices. The new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 commercial is the latest commercial to follow that trend. The 60-second advertisement starts off by showing a bright yellow pencil blocking the incredibly thin iPad Air, but then it goes on to show the iPad blocking the even thinner Galaxy Tab Pro. The basic message is that is thin is really that important to you, Apple's not the only game in town.
Of course, there's more to a good product than just thinness, so Samsung also touts other things like the ability to multitask and the option to show a "killer" screen and the ability to multitask. There's even a surprised man narrating the whole rundown. If the voice sounds familiar to you, that's because it's Neal Brennan, co-host of The Champs podcast, stand-up comedian, and co-creator of The Chapelle Show. While Apple's original ad featured the inspirational tone of Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, Samsung chose to go for a lighter and funnier voice. Watch the two clips below to see how they compare.
