New Samsung Infuse Commercial - what WERE you thinking ATT?

I'm directing this post specifically to ATT's marketing group: what WERE you thinking when you created the recent commercial for Samsung Infuse with the spider and the woman screaming .. then her table partners beating the phone because the image looked so realistic? That is the tackiest MOST obnoxious commercial I've ever seen. When it comes on, I immediately change channels - it irritates the psyche and makes me remember this phone but for all the wrong reasons. I wouldn't buy this phone on a bet because of your rediculous and VERY lame attempt at advertising.  There are too many quality phones out there to limit myself to Samsung and there are marketing groups who take seriously the intelligence and taste of their customer. You are insulting your customer base with this ad.  If I were you, I would remove it from TV airing .. today. Its sick and annoying .. yes, very annoying.   http://youtu.be/mcr2uWkJkzI Check it out and tell me I'm wrong .. NOT!

If the phone locks up, vibrates a few times and reboots one more tine, I'll be hitting it. Love the phone bur the Stock browser and occasionally the gallery will kill my phone for 5 minutes..wife's phone too!

Man, her chair went flying... Although I've never seen it on T.V. that commercial is pretty annoying. I hate the advertiser guy's voice at the end, too, but the phone itself looks very cool. Especially with that turantula. Smiley Wink

That is one of the stupidest, most annoying commercials I've seen in a LONG time.

Me and everyone I know hate hate hate this annoying commercial!!! It has gotten to where I have to furiously search for the remote so I can change the channel in order to avoid it. This is the first time in my 30 years that I have ever felt the need to do so. I am so continuously outraged that it is still playing, and so often, that I REFUSE to ever buy an ATT phone ever. In what reality do you think that annoying potential customers makes them want to buy from you? Do yourself a favor and fire the dunce who thought this commercial was going to sell you more phones.

I hate this commercial with a burning passion. Everytime it comes on i scramble for the remote and hit the mute button. This commercial makes me very angry. I cringe when i first hear the scream. I normally don't like registering for random things but i really needed to voice how awful this commercial is. It took me a while to actually tell what the commercial was about because the it annoyed me so much. Now i'm making a negative assocciation; if i ever get that phone i would think of nothing but screaming. In fact, at the moment i'm making a point to never buy that phone. If the simple fact that the commercial is annoying doesn't get it pulled, how about the fact that the commercial is offensive to women. The girl is the one that screams like a maniac when she sees the spider. I guess i would hate the commercial less if it was the guy who was screaming; then it would be a wee bit funny.

I can't believe people get so easily annoyed, or annoyed with a tv commercial.
@sasha... It may be the woman screaming, but it's the man beating a PHONE, with his SHOE.

It's a goofy commercial, true. But I wanted to see what this "lifelike" screen looked like in real life... Ended up buying one.

I too hate this commercial. I've never written about any commercial ever but I get so aggravated. The screaming is very annoying. My entire family rushes for the mute button everytime it comes on ! I would never buy this product. Why would any one choose this as a marketing tool??

I get it. Nowadays many of us are so stressed that we forget to fully exercise all of our options; one of which is to watch tv channels that advertise less. This blog isn't big enough to complain about all the offensive stuff I see on tv [which by the way, others may love]. I was actually considering another phone, but this ad encouraged me to ignore the hype and check the specs; sorry, I think I will get one next week.

This is one of the most annoying commercials ever!!!!!!  Whenever it comes on, I switch to another channel or mute it.  This commercial should be banned.

No not drive by posters, these are people like me that went to the trouble of registering on this board because there is no other way to complain to ATT about the Moronic commercial. They should seriously think twice about annoying so many potential customers. Yes they got people's attention..... long enough to mute or change channels but not to ever listed to what they are trying to sell.

I concur and so do my friends and family!!!  This is the most obnoxiously LOUD commercial ever!!!  I dive across the room to hit the mute button before the woman starts screaming.  This commercial is very annoying, extremely loud and needs to be retired!

We were so annoyed by the commercial that we didn't know what was being advertised. My husband even changes to a different channel every time this stupid commercial comes on. I pray they take it away. I find it so annoying that I would never consider that brand just because of it and it makes me want to use a different service other than ATT. Like other people have said, what were this people thinking?  I dislike this commercial with a passion, makes me upset every time it comes on.

I totally agree with you!! I'd like to know what agency thought this up and WHO at ATT actually approved it.... I supposed they will say that all the negative attention is getting the name out, but I never remember what the commercial is for until the end. I even have ATT services AND a Samsung phone!

 

It's just stupid!

This commercial is HIGHLY OFFENSIVE.  I, too, scramble for the remote each time in a mad rush to press ANY button, just to get rid of or shut this wench up!  Is your product that bad that you have to resort to having someone scream in our faces at the top her lungs to get our attention?  Shame on you, AT&T. You're not making any new customers with this stupid stunt.  Everyone I know finds this commercial annoying and distasteful.   Can't wait for it to be over!

Promoting the only phone on the ATT network with Super AMOLED +? What WERE they thinking?! *cough*

@Justintimeagain: how exactly is it "highly offensive?"

I just have to add my 2 cents!  This commercial just came on again... I either turn on the MUTE or change the channel every time this commercial comes on.  It has to be THE worst and THE most annoying commercial I have witnessed.  I would never purchase this phone just because of this disgusting commercial.  Save yourselves and take this disgusting and annoying commercial off the air NOW!  Thank you!
