With S-Beam, you can share “special” videos with your partner [VIDEO]

In the world of advertising it becomes increasingly difficult to deliver a message in a way that will captivate an audience. Either it’s already been done, it’s too racy, or it’s just flat out not a good idea. This latest ad from Samsung for the Galaxy S3, the Korean company attempts to straddle the line between the latter two.

In the ad, a father is about to head out for a business trip when his two daughters tell him they’ve made a video for him to watch so that he can see his bundles of joy while on the plane.

They S Beam him the video no problem, but in comes the wife — she has a video for him too. The problem is that her video probably is not safe to watch in the plane… or any public place for that matter.

It would appear she’s made a solo sex video for her husband to enjoy, though that can only be an assumption on our part. But does anyone really think it’s anything else? I mean, now that I think about it S Beam/Android Beam is perfect for such a scenario — this would probably be the most secure way to send such a video to your other half with little chance of someone else finding it on the fierce waves of WiFi.

I guess I’m just surprised Samsung would make the notion no matter how subtle it is. I personally see no issue with it — I thought it was rather humorous, in fact. But with how “PC” our society has gotten (some people still get upset over PDA and kissing on television, for goodness’ sake) it’s refreshing to see that a company like Samsung is not above being edgy.

On another note, please tell me I’m not the only one who thought it was absolutely hilarious that the phone “bumps” sort of act like kisses in these scenes. Perhaps we’ve finally let technology take over our need for true physical affection… one can only dream. Be sure to watch the video for yourself above!

    I saw this the other night on TV, loved it. Cute.

  • Thomas

    Note to self : Don’t S Beam the video you made w/ your girlfriend to your wife. ;)

    • bmg314

      xD oops

    • ari_free

      His wife is his girlfriend. As it should be.

  • dancedroid

    top youtube comment on this vid from yesterday:

    “its a video of her sh*tting on the table”

    • Thomas

      I thought that video looked like it was shot in Cleveland.

      • Ken Bosse

        hahaha

      That’s hawwwt. Steaming hawt.

      • Chadful33

        Streaming hawt…

  • Marc Barbieri

    Too bad he would have to sit there are wait for the videos to actually transfer before leaving and probably miss his flight :)

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      S Beam uses a WiFi Direct connection to transfer files. It wouldn’t have taken much longer than a few seconds depending on the size of the video

      • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

        Assuming both phones use wireless N, they would still have to kiss and be in close proximity for dozens of seconds in order to finish transfering a short-ish 60-second 1080p sexytime video @ the ~2MB/s max avg I see. Though… she probably shot the video with the front-facing cam, so it’s only 720p

        • Mr. JacKaL

          LMAO….HAHAH…… front facing camera…lol….too good man… love the analysis…

    • Chimphappyhour

      Yeah, so far my experience with tap to share has been painfully sloooooow.

      • eclipsenyou

        Then you need to do a factory reset Chimp. S-Beam works great on my S3. My g/f and I share photos & files all the time and it’s lightning fast.

    • Butters619

      …..worth it….

    • Ahhk

      My wife and I share video clips often and it’s actually quite quick. So, not really sure what you are referring to.

  • Butters619

    She could share her videos with me.

  • IrishSid

    mmm that really hit the S-spot.

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      You, sir, win 4 internets.

    • Ralph

      I don’t think that’s the letter she had in mind…

  • DanWazz

    I think it works as an advert. Get people’s attention and people are talking about it. Pretty funny too.

  • as439726

    Hey PHANDROID TEAM
    Ok now I have your attention. Sorry to go Caps Lock on you.
    Why are there posts that contain video not playable on mobile. I don’t mean non smart phones. I mean literally on the Phandroid App. I run ICS and should have no issues. I’ve asked other friends running your app on their ICS phones and same problem.
    Am I missing a setting? Is someone making a mistake on the post side?
    Thanks

    • Abstract

      My Galaxy Nexus plays them just fine. It opens it through the Youtube app. o.O

      • BLADESMAN1889

        So does my Galaxy S

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          So does my Intuition, Optimus G, and Galaxy S3. O.o

          • lycan codex

            Chris, u have Galaxy S3 too?? When is ur Note 2 coming!!!

    • Mr. JacKaL

      my GS3 doesnt show it…i just get a black screen…but I’m guessing this is probably due to my custom rom or something i dont know..or ad blocking software..

      • jfelts

        I would try resetting your Phandroid and Video Player defaults.

        • Mr. JacKaL

          so I uninstalled Phandroid and installed Phandroid News edition. Using this it works just fine.

  • Jake

    Don’t over think it. It’s a quick funny little commercial. Lots of commercials have innuendo, which could be taken to some extreme. In this case most people would think, “oh, she made a naughty video for her husband”, and stop right there. Few are going to dwell on it and think about the details of what could be in the video. If it makes you feel better, she just filmed herself in some lingerie with maybe a little strip tease. Why does your mind go straight to a video of her self-pleasuring?

    • Alexander Ramirez

      If those Live Jasmin pop ups are of any relevance…

    • BLADESMAN1889

      bcos we’re MEN :-D

    • Sergio Villaseca

      Actually she did NOTHING. No video at all. Her, the girls, her hubby and even the cab driver are all actors.. Really!. The rest.. well, it’s just your naughty imagination folks.

  • Alexander Ramirez

    And his next big thing will be coming soon…

    i see what you did there. “straddle the line”

  • johnnycrappleseed

    … one can only dream- forever alone

  • Ahhk

    Fantastic commercial.

  • http://twitter.com/SpamStream lolwut

    WATCH IT ON THE PLANE ANYWAY, FAP, LOCK EYES WITH THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT, FINISH LIKE A BOSS

  • Micha Ols

    I REALLY want to see that video! I want it NAO!

  • ari_free

    Apple would never make an ad like this.

  • as439726

    I am with Mr Jackal. Just a black screen. ICS and flash running properly. Stock OS

    • Mr. JacKaL

      I uninstalled Phandroid app and installed Phandroid News edition and it works fine…only draw back is I have to use the DISQS account and not my gmail account to post…

  • as439726

    For clarity. Blaze 4g and S3

  • EasyEEE

    Whoever asked about video not playing … There are two phandroid apps. Neither one is perfect,.and I prefer old one if it actually would play videos

  • louched1

    That dude better upload that to xhamster!

  • Moosejaw

    Yes, his wife is his girlfriend.

  • RahjerDat

    Sure wish all those videos made it to TV. Them the videos that need to be seen instead of those Apple mocking videos.

  • parkg626

    I love that commercial even though I’m rockin the HTC One X…I’ll have to get my woman to share videos with me…lol
