Samsung uploads new 2-minute Galaxy Camera commercial starring James Franco


Samsung has been on fire lately, releasing a blitz of ad spots for their Galaxy line of smartphones. We’ve all seen ’em, barristas waiting in line for the “next big thing,” and even a more recent ad featuring a husband, wife, and very naughty video.

Looks like the Galaxy Camera is next up for some commercial love. and to help spark further interest in the camera, Samsung has enlisted the help of none other than Pineapple Express’ James Franco. The YouTube video uploaded earlier today, showcases a variety of real world situations the Android-powered camera could come in handy for. That is, if you’re James-mother-effin-Franco and live like a rock star. Watch the video below and let me know what you think.

The Galaxy Camera is the first of its kind in that it’s a fully functional Android device rocking a quad-core processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Samsung pulled out all the stops on this one, making sure the Android experience didn’t take a back seat to solid camera tech. The device can be picked up right now on AT&T with a data-only plan, and also on Verizon Wireless taking advantage of their 4G LTE network. Make it a tad bit thinner with voice calling and you got me, Samsung.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. “making sure the Android experience didn’t take a back seat to solid camera tech”. Unfortunately yes they did, and the result is that said camera tech is mediocre at best considering the high price. Sticking a celebrity behind it just highlights that it doesn’t stand on its own merits.

    1. good post

    2. “Your camera is in the drink, but your photos are in the cloud*”
      I’d prefer a waterproofed camera.

      *assuming you had an internet connection since you took the photos

  2. Photo bombers man… Annoying as hell lol

    1. Too bad that the photo he edited was a different photo then the one that they showed that he took….notice how close the bomber is in the photo that they showed that he took and the distance between the bomber and girl is when he edited the photo….and yes the bombers are annoying pesky people…

  3. I liked the commercial and I like the concept of the “Always connected camera” but I didn’t like the price tag of $500+ when I can pick up a point and shoot for around a $100 and just upload my pictures later. I mean I don’t live like a rockstar so it really doesn’t matter that much to me.

  4. Really well done by Samsung. Makes the camera expensive but the only choice if you can afford it.. If you can’t -don’t cry here;)

  5. hope more camera brands adapt android in the future, samsung opens the book

  6. God stuff~

  7. That guy needs to do a commercial with Gillette.

  8. If they made this a SIII with a phone/camera and this was subsidized with a contract, I would consider this!
