Samsung Ad Shows Sexting Santa
Tis the season for naughty Santa ads? A Samsung commercial showed Mrs. Claus displaying her naughty side.
Samsung cut an innuendo-laced a commercial for its Galaxy phone. The ad first shows a pair of elves excitedly telling Santa they made a video for him. Mrs. Claus shares the video with Santa simply by touching phones. Then Mrs. Claus says: â€śI also made you a video,â€ť touches phones, then leans in and suggestively says: â€śbut you probably shouldnâ€™t watch it on the sleigh.â€ť (The ad is a Christmas takeoff of an earlier ad featuring the exact same scenario.)
Perhaps while Santa was busy making toys, Mrs. Claus has been whiling away the North Pole nights reading â€ś50 Shades of Gray,â€ť or reaching out to a certain former Democratic congressman from New York?
The ad is one Christmas image viewers could have done without. But using icky sex to sell products is apparently the â€śnew normalâ€ť for advertisers.
