Samsung and Apple have always been at odds, and the Korean giant has historically pulled no punches when it comes to mocking its adversary.

Amid Apple’s big iPhone X launch, Samsung is at it again.

The ad shows a protagonist who is an avid Apple fan. We see images of Apple’s famous queues outside its stores, an old-fashioned unboxing, and even a long wait in the rain.

As the years go by, the iPhone-loving man is inadvertently taunted by his girlfriend, who is seen using a variety of Galaxy smartphones in just the right situations where it would have been more useful than an Apple smartphone.

While he’s typing a phone number, for instance, she whips out her S Pen to comfortably handwrite it. They then both fall in a pond – her Galaxy S7 is safe, while his iPhone 6S can only pray that a bowl of rice will do the trick.

Living the #donglelife must have been not exactly fun.

At the end of the commercial, called “Growing Up,” the protagonist, seemingly fed up with Apple’s problems, gifts himself a brand-new Galaxy Note 8.

Proud of his purchase, he then goes back to the Apple Store where he’d queued up a decade earlier and shrugs by wannabe iPhone X customers – one with a notch-shaped haircut, no less.
