In the extended version of the ad, Samsung spends even more time parodying the wild-eyed enthusiasm Apple lovers display for anything the company creates."Only seven people stand between us...and meaning," one fanboy says. "We're going to remember this day for the rest of our lives." But as rumors of the phone's lackluster specs spreads to those in the line, doubt begins to grow. "If it looks the same, how will anyone know I upgraded?" one man asks, hinting that Apple devotees care most about their image in the eyes of others. At the very end of the clip, a few of the men waiting in line try to make the best out of the fact that the phones they're holding now seem painfully out-of-date.
