Reactions have been mixed to Samsung's somewhat understated Superbowl big game commercial, featuring comedy B-listers Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd. If you couldn't get enough of the pair trading jabs while pitching a meta Galaxy ad, Samsung has posted the full 4:40 cut to YouTube. The ad follows the plot and pacing of the shorter version, but there's a few extra punch lines in there. Just in case ninety seconds of middle-aged verbal jousting wasn't enough for you.

Samsung seems to be the only consumer electronics brand interested in the advertising world's biggest stage this year. Sadly, there's no reveal of new hardware headed for the US market or anywhere else. For that, you'll have to wait for Mobile World Congress at the earliest, where we kind of hope the guy playing the smarmy executive will deliver the keynote instead of Samsung's CEO.

By the way, check 1:22 for some humorous tiny type.

    It removed some lines from the original as well.

    I really loved the part where they talk about viral videos. I HATE when people say they want to make a viral video, or they just made a bunch of viral videos, et cetera. Drives me nuts.

    B-listers? Seriously? Rogen's starred in or wrote practically half the comedy blockbusters for the last 5+ years.

    • Joe

      Agreed, both of these guys have been in huge comedy films over the last few years, and (if you look at both of their IMDB profiles) many more to come just this year. Jeremiah, please correct this, otherwise it comes across like these guys are (obviously) big but you personally just don't like them ;)

      More like D lister. Seriously he sucks and he's not funny. He was OK in 40 yr old virgin after that all the Judd apatow films fu@ing sucked. They got old and boring. I'm tired of the same Paul Rudd , Seth rogen cast type films

          You make me want to go out and start killing black people...

          • HopelesslyFaithful

        Disliking an actor doesn't put them on a B-list unless the rest of the world agrees with you. Hate to say it.

      • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

        Their list status isn't based on how much you like or dislike them. Your taste, or lack thereof, in comedy has no bearing on their place in Hollywood.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I think he's on the border of A and B lists. I wasn't able to find an exact list for this or last year, or any year, but I'd call people like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, etc A-listers.

      Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd aren't quite there yet (though they are some of my favs).

      • goodnamesgoquick

        The article said *comedy* B-listers. The names you mention are not comedic actors. The two in the commercial are easily top billed names in mainstream comedy movies. Hard to be much more A-list than that.

        Regardless, the point stands that the referring to them as B-listers makes the author of the article sound petty and dismissive of actors he doesn't happen to like.

    Better call Saul!

  • Wayne Randall

    Yet you didn't mention Bob Odenkirk in the lead in. Perfectly understandishable.

    • http://insight.pinkonbrown.org/ Dr P Fenderson

      Was really surprised to see him in the video. Can't believe they didn't mention him. I mean, he's probably been more influential in the modern comedy scene than the other 2 put together. Paul Rudd has around 92 credits on IMDB (not including "Himself"), Seth Rogen has 69. Bob has 149, including being a writer for SNL, Conan, Ben Stiller, Dennis Miller, Tenacious D, Mr. Show (which he co-created), and tons more.

    I'm giving a +1 for "The Galaxy Note 10.1 is not a phone."

    LMAO

  • MumboJumbo

    *Seth RogEn

  • RajivSK

    I lolled! ...just kidding, I cried... Seeing their desperate attempts at being funny makes me sad..

  • Jonathan Isenberg

    So was anything actually revealed? Or did this just waste my time?

  • AFAIK

    AFAIK the Note 10.1 3G can be used to make phone calls. Correct me if I'm wrong. Any Note 10.1+3G User here?

    • TylerChappell

      Being able to make phone calls does not make a device a phone. I can make phone calls with my Nexus 7 with wifi + Google Voice + GrooveIP, doesn't make it a phone.

      • AFAIK

        I'm not talking about voip. I'm talking about the umts module in the Note 10.1 should be able to directly use the carrier network. In the mean time I did a small research. It should be like I said.

  • Mario

    Jeremiah, you don't have to hide your love for Seth and Paul, man.

    I LOVE THIS VIDEO!! I've seen the 1, 2 and 4 minute versions of it and it keeps getting better every time!

    My favorite line, from Seth, is, "...I can take your picture and make it look like you're still in your 40's." LOL'd so hard muhfuggas wanna fine me.

  • Josh

    Lol...each version keeps getting funnier

  • Paul_Werner

    My favorite part is when Paul Rudd tells Seth Rogen "Don't laugh, it creeps people out"

    My wife and I always make fun of the laugh and any movie he's in we count how many times he does it.

  • Matt Woodson

    I'm a huge Samsung fan. I really wanted to like the commercial. I didn't. To me, and the room I was in, it fell very flat.
