Samsung’s ad (entitled “Sister”) tells a universal story.
It totally avoids technical descriptions of the phone’s features.
The ad was purposefully created to be a hit in diverse markets.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Branding and Advertising Expert Andy Rice.
Rice discussed “Sister”.
He also spoke about OUTsurance’s Fathers’ Day racial blunder and a very poor forklift company ad he saw in Fortune Magazine.
OUTsurance CEO Willem Roos phoned in to add to the discussion.
