Published on YouTube Tuesday morning by windowsphone, the other-other smartphone OS used a new approach in advertising “Engadget’s Readers Choice Smartphone of the Year,” their Nokia Lumia 920. And said approach is by bashing both iOS and Android users, but more specifically, the ongoing feud between the two camps.
The silly advertisement definitely has some truth in it — we all know people who are diehard believers of either smartphone operating system– and similar to mixing oil and water, it’s best to not leave an ‘iPhone person’ alone with an ‘Android person.’
Using the new tagline, “Don’t Fight, Switch,” Windows Phone 8 is sitting back and watching the two obliterate each other. And when the ashes settle, members of both sides will ditch their brethren and come rushing to the ‘Windows side’ — yeah, it’s clearly a stretch, alright.
Check out the funny video below:
Regardless which side of the smartphone war you find yourself on, it’s good to find common a ground with your opposition by means of a good laugh. Because if you can’t laugh at yourself, you’re probably taking yourself too seriously and that’s not a good thing.
Despite what the video says, we’re not expecting a wave of WP8 converters anytime soon. But alas, it’s a good try. I commend you, Windows Phone.
