Ah, tis the season…and that can mean only one thing – it is time for the new Samsung holiday video, aptly named, “Home for the Holidays.” Samsung always pulls out the stars for its big promotions and this year is no different – American actress and singer, Kristen Bell and her husband Dax Shepard, an American actor, comedian, writer and director are the next two celebrities for Samsung’s latest ad-spot. The whole theme of the video is getting up early and decorating for the holidays – Kristen looks like she is in her ninth month of pregnancy, so she sits around and chats to Dax over their many Samsung devices as he puts lights on the roof, does the shopping and decorates the tree. In the evening, they are both so exhausted that they perform a ‘light-up’ and stay “Home for the Holidays”…most likely to give thanks for their many Samsung blessings.
The morning starts off with their Galaxy Note Edge‘s alarm going off…the same time as their Gear S smartwatch lying beside it on the night stand. He heads up to the attic with one of the smartphones and uses the LED as a flashlight as he looks through the boxes as he video chats and asks about a early picture of Kristen, while she is using the video calling capabilities of the Galaxy Tab S tablet. Kristen sits and decorates a Christmas gingerbread house while listening to music from her Samsung smartphone. She then calls him while he is on the roof hanging lights and he gets to answer her call with his Samsung Gear S smartwatch – the Tizen run standalone – no phone required.
Kristen works on a winter picture on her tablet as Dax sprays snowflakes on the windows. While he decorates the tree, she uses her Samsung smartphone, possibly the Galaxy S5, and its built-in IR Blaster to turn on their Samsung curved HDTV and a roaring fire appears on it. Dax then uses the Galaxy Note 4 to draw some mistletoe so he can hold it over Kristen for a big kiss. She then calls him using her smartphone and he answers in the store on his Gear S again as they go over the shopping list. As a final act he uses his smartphone to turn on the Christmas lights – Kristen gets all warm and fuzzy and they both enjoy National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on their Samsung curved HDTV.
The two-minute video is beautifully done and will get you in the Christmas mood. It does an excellent job of showcasing a few of Samsung’s great products and how they can be used to help enhance our lives…making things just a little bit easier, and a little more fun, at the same time.
