Samsung Gets Overly Attached Girlfriend to Play a Possessive PC

It. Does. Not. Compute. Or does it? Laina Morris, who became an overnight sensation with the Overly Attached Girlfriend video she made for Justin Bieber, stares wide-eyed and creepy from your screen and raps as an "Overly Attached Computer" in this Viral Factory ad for Samsung's SSD 840 drive, designed to encrypt and protect user data. In her earlier song, Morris promised/threatened, among other things, "If I was your girlfriend, I'd drive you up the wall/Question who you're with, yeah I'd always call and call/I wouldn't call it jealousy, just lookin' out for you/Readin' all your texts, watching everything you do." Ah, true love. Here, Morris plays a possessive PC that knows all its user's secrets—naughty Web-search history, passwords, bank-account numbers—and has no qualms about letting such info leak or erasing crucial data if it doesn't get enough user attention. She drones: "Remember all those things we shared?/Illegal downloads, I didn't care/I kept them safely for you/Played them when you asked me to/I'd hate to see you get all heated/If suddenly they got deleted/Love me again … Love me again." With that attitude, she must be a Dell. Mac's don't play that.
