Look Who’s Trolling Samsung In Times Square: LG’s Optimus 4 Ad Copies Samsung Galaxy 4 Billboards

Who doesn’t love some good old fashioned trolling? We all know that today is the day that Samsung plans to unveil their highly anticipated Galaxy 4 smartphone at Radio City in New York. We’ve seen the ads, the billboards, and even the flash mob video. What you may not have noticed was that LG doesn’t want to be left out of the party and decided to do some trolling to get their point across. As pictured above, you can see that the rival company has copied Samsung’s Galaxy 4 ad to promote their very own Optimus 4. LG even uses the same verbiage stating that Optimus G is “here 4 you now”. Ah, I see what you did there…

LG’s conveniently placed ads even score some face time in Samsung’s Unpacked video as seen below. Well done LG. Can’t say we blame LG for keeping the competition fresh and reminding consumers that at the end of the day when it comes to buying a smartphone the choice is still theirs.

We’ll be covering the Unpacked event today and will keep you updated on the G4’s arrival.
