If she looks familiar, it’s because it’s Laina Morris from the viral “Overly Attached Girlfriend” video she made for Justin Bieber.
Well, Samsung tapped her to play the role of an unloved and neglected computer that’s in desperate need for attention. Or more specifically, the need for Samsung’s SSD 840. A drive that will protect data on your computer by encrypting it.
The ad, produced by the Viral Factory, takes on a retro vibe (all the way down to a font that was considered hi-tech 30 years ago).
No doubt it’s a clever piece, but it’s difficult to figure out exactly what the ad is for. But with close to 2 million views in a little over 4 days, it’s clear people came to see more of Morris and the infamous stare.
