Samsung TV Advert: Seth Rogen ‘Would Wear A Diaper For Samsung’
Last week, Samsung released a video teaser for its Super Bowl TV commercial, and now the company has released the full advert with Seth Rogen saying he "would wear a diaper for Samsung."
The teaser featured Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenrick, but the full two-minute commercial also includes a cameo by LeBron James.
The advert starts with Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd sitting at a reception, probably Samsung's, and having a conversation revolving around pitching ideas to Samsung. Both are surprised that the other was called in to be the next big thing.
"Maybe in 1998 you were the next big thing," Rogen says to Rudd. "Wow, I've never seen you this excited about something that isn't food" Rudd counters.
In the midst of the conversation, Odenrick makes his appearance as a Samsung representative and all three head towards a room where Rogen and Rudd try to impress Odenrick for a spot in the two-minute commercial, which is set to air during the Super Bowl.
Rudd and Rogen present cliched ideas like crowdsourcing (Doritos), sending a fan into space (Axe), Asian rappers (Wonderful PIstachios), and talking babies (E*Trade). Rogen even tells the Samsung rep that he "would wear a diaper for Samsung."
The ad ends with LeBron James making a cameo appearance on a tablet (probably the Galaxy Note 10.1) and talking to Odenrick. Rudd says "You get LeBron James and you've got the next big thing. You don't even need anybody else." Odenkirk then concludes by saying "No, no we don't need anyone else."
In the two-minute advert, Samsung devices - Galaxy Note 2 (which LeBron previously promoted) and presumably the Galaxy Note 10.1 - make short appearances.
