Danny Glover waits out a ticking time bomb in Samsung’s new commercial1 month, 4 days ago
What fun is defusing a bomb without an element of nail-biting suspense?
In a showing of savvy showmanship, Danny Glover decides to wait 12 hours before shutting down a ticking time bomb in Samsung’s latest commercial.
As he waits, he does what anyone might do if stuck in an air vent with nothing but a phone he plays some games, watches some funny videos and orders a pizza.
Then, with about five seconds to spare, he casually unplugs the weapon.
“Oh my gosh. Bomb, ” he reminds himself, as if it had slipped his intellect. “That was close.”
The 30 -second spot, from Portland-based ad agency Wieden+ Kennedy, is clearly intended to show off the battery life of Samsung’s Galaxy S7.
The Lethal Weapon superstar appeared in another commercial promoting the smartphone’s battery earlier this year, which also involved a ticking time bomb.
