Samsung believes popularizing the Galaxy Gear begins with getting the girl


For a moment there I didn’t think I would find a creepier marketing spot than Nokia’s Lumia 2520 “mullet.” Well, Samsung has gone and taken “creepy marketing spot” to a whole new level with “Are You Geared Up?” The 2.5 minute features two guys, one with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the other with just a run-of-the-mill smartphone and of course the bombshell blonde.

Jack, our main character hopes to win the affections of Aimee all because his 007-style charm works in combination with the Galaxy Gear. Jack, follows Aimee down the snowboard hill capturing shots of her on the way down without any concern for how completely stalker-ish the whole thing appears to be. Let the love story begin.

There’s more cringe-inducing material to come out of this ad but I’ll let you watch the whole thing so you too can recognize the purchase of the Galaxy Gear automatically means you’ll never be single again.
