Samsung has found a curious yet amusing way to show off some of the features of its Galaxy Note 10 smartphone, which made its debut last month.

In a campaign created by BBH New York, a young woman has an epiphany after stumbling across some alpacas for sale. With help from her trusty Galaxy Note 10, she’s able to single-handedly create the next big thing in fashion: alpaca-inspired neon hairstyles.

Throughout the ad, we see her use the phone’s capabilities, like its S Pen handwriting-to-text feature, to bring her idea to life.

According to BBH New York, which is part of the Publicis team that works on the Samsung account, the agency was tasked with providing a “different approach in the technology category” for the phone’s launch campaign. 

“We wanted to demonstrate all the seriously high tech and unique product benefits the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 offers in a fun and memorable way,” Jonathan Mackler, executive creative director at BBH New York, said in a statement. “Our goal was to bring spontaneity and a sense of humor to the brand messaging, elevating Samsung and separating it from what is traditionally a cold, feature-focused tech world.”
