Are we living in the future? Samsung seems to think so, as two new ads for its Galaxy Gear smart watch compare the gadget to famous watches from television and movies.
Posted on YouTube, the first spot (above) shows off watches with advanced functionality — fromDick Tracy’s communication watch to KITT’s smart watch in Knight Rider.
In Samsung’s second spot (below), film and TV characters are shown talking into their watches, including the Predator, Penny from Inspector Gadget and Agent 86 from Get Smart. If anything, the ad reminds us that wrist communicators were really popular between the 1960s and the 1980s.
