Samsung sings "S4 Samsung Style" in India

Samsung has just launched the Galaxy S4 in India. The South Korean conglomerate, known for its high-level marketing tactics, opted to use the record-breaking song from fellow South Korean artist PSY. But obviously there's a problem, there's no PSY in the stage.  Instead, Samsung hired actor Ranveer Singh to do a rendition of the song.

The lyrics of the song was also altered, with lines like "S4 Samsung Style" and "If you like the S3 then this phone is even better. It has an HD screen and is just a lot slimmer." In fairness, the performance was good, and Singh sort of killed it, well kinda. Multiple news outlets from all over the web criticized Samsung for the act, but hey, as long as the folks in India are loving it, it's all fine. During its launch in New York earlier this year, Samsung came up with a Broadway-themed Galaxy S4 launch event.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
