After teasing us with a few short trailer of its latest ad campaign for the G5, LG has finally released what looks to be the full version of the video. However, we sincerely hope that this is merely the first episode in a series of videos as it is just so incredibly entertaining.
Jason Statham simply knocks this role out of the park, or rather these twenty or so roles, as he plays every character in the thirty second clip. Subway passenger, street performer, restaurant customer, or motorbike stuntman - the British action legend just seems like the perfect and at the same time worst possible fit for each persona, giving off his own patented mix of calm, collected, somewhat menacing and yet humorous vibe. It just works and you should definitely check it out for yourself!
The ad part of the video is most-likely intentionally subtle, but the main emphasis is on the morphing and playful nature of the LG G5. You can learn more on the modular design in our in-depth review.
The LG G5 is launching today in South Korea and tomorrow (April 1) in the US.
Even more offensive is that Jason Statham is in this commercial. Lost a lot of credibility as an actor with me. Don't know which annoyed me more the commercial or the fact that Jason Statham was part of it.
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate this commercial. Will NEVER purchase a LG product because of the stupidity and annoying ad..
Absolutely loved this commercial! This is one commercial I dont even think about fast forwarding through :-)
