LG Introduces Flexible Phone Via Bizarre Video Advert
By Vittorio Hernandez | March 7, 2014 10:16 AM EST
The telephone actually replicates two human body parts people use during a live conversation. But what if the gadget doesn't look like the high-tech devices that often wows consumers, but actually look like real mouths and ears. Would you still buy such a phone?
LG, the South Korean tech giant, just rolled out its curved phone and to sell the model, it is using the advertising pitch "The Most Human Phone Ever." In the two days that the advert has been posted on YouTube, it has gone viral with over 20,000 views.
Some viewers may find the commercial funny despite the bland acting of the pair of male friends who star in the 2-minute advert.
Mashable found the use of image of facial hair and other body parts appearing in unsuspecting places rather weird and wrote that it may be inclined to pass up on the G Flex if the phone looked what was shown in the advert.
Fortunately, it is just the product of the creative or unimaginative minds of LG's advertising agency. In real life, the G Flex is a beauty, packed in a 6-inch curved screen, featuring a 13-megapixel camera, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
