Nokia’s New Lumia Ad Says The iPhone 5 Sucks Because It Isn’t Colorful [Video]



You know, I really like this Nokia ad mocking iPhone users over their lack of color choices.

Featuring a joyless, shifting line moving slowly forward to consume the monochrome iPhone 5, it shows a gray world thrown into anarchy when one customer dares to ask about their color choices. Then, when that customer steps out of line, he sees a number of bright, vibrant, colorful people wandering around, uniquely bopping and having fun. They are all carrying Lumias.

Is the iPhone 5’s lack of color choices a big deal? Not for me: that’s what cases are for. I also think it’s important to remember that these ads aren’t aimed at trying to argue people who already want an iPhone out of buying one: they are aimed at convincing people who already know they don’t want an iPhone that a Lumia is better than an Android phone because of its colorful designs.

So I think this ad is really great. It really reminds me of some of the wonderfully designed and experimental cartoons of U.P.A. that came out in the 50s and 60s.
