Is the Samsung World Cup HD ad really "terminally shoddy"?


Have you seen that awful ad from Samsung for the HD-ready TV? You know, the one about "scoring tickets" for the big match, then swapping them for a Samsung TV. HDTV UK reports that Peter Kirwan, an ex-editor of Computing magazine, has described it as "terminally shoddy" and "the most terrible World Cup related TV creative of them all."

But is it indicative of ads for HD-ready TVs in general? What do you think of them? Are they good? Bad? Indifferent? Filled with too much jargon? Or just not that good in explaining what HD is?

Head over to HDTV UK and have your say.
