  • Samsung penis billboard – typo FAIL or intentional clever advertising [pic]
    Posted by on Nov 25th, 2013

    Ok so apparently (yes it hasn’t been confirmed or denied) Samsung put up some new billboards in Africa for their new Galaxy Note pen and it’s been doing the rounds on forums and social networks. The billboard caption at first glans (boom punned that right in the face) looks like an epic fail because of the typo, but was it really a misspelled word or just clever advertising.

    Several folks saying it was a epic typo fail, but on closer inspection you’ll realise that the comma is placed after the word ‘penis’. If it was a mistake and the sentence was supposed to read ‘The pen is mightier than the finger’ then they wouldn’t have included the comma.

    So im going with deliberate clever advertising and it’s clearly worked given the amount of free exposure it’s getting.

    Well played.

    I dunno, the text “The penis,” looks like it was photoshop’d in to me, it’s very easy to do, and they didn’t even bother to alter the perspective on the 2 words, if you look closely, you will see that it’s perfectly straight, while the rest of the text is perspectively aligned with the eyeview of the billboard.

    I can fix that if you want.

    The internet believes everything. Sigh.
