While this week has been full of a ton of news on Android N, today has been full of a number of Samsung news reports. This is largely due to the company’s latest smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge leaving their pre-order statuses and entering their general availability status. As a result, a number of reports have come through detailing that both devices are now available to buy instore and online from select carriers and select retailers. Of course, with this being Samsung you might expect that with the devices going on general sale, there might also be a few new promotional videos being released and you would be right, as Samsung has today released three new Galaxy S7 promotional videos and all starring Lil Wayne.
The first video is simply entitled ‘Champagne Calls’ and is designed to highlight the water-resistant (or in this case, Champagne-resistant) features of the Galaxy S7. The video starts with Lil Wayne pouring Champagne directly on his Galaxy S7 before dunking the phone in a fish tank when someone calls. In contrast, one of his friends tries pouring Champagne on his non-Galaxy S7 smartphone (which suspiciously looks like an iPhone from a distance) and as you might expect, the outcome of the other phone is not so good.
Following on and although the other two videos are designed to promote the Galaxy S7, they actually focus on Samsung’s Gear VR headset. Which in the grand scheme of things does make sense as Samsung has been pushing a promotion where those who buy the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge before March 18, will also get a free Gear VR. In the first video Lil Wayne is using the Gear VR and enjoying all the benefits that virtual reality has to offer including riding in a canoe with Wesley Snipes, before Wesley Snipes makes a cameo. While the second video includes both Lil Wayne and Wesley Snipes enjoying what the Gear VR has to offer including delivering a baby elephant.
