Are Samsung Washing Machines Any Good? Does a Bear Launder His Pelt in the Woods?

New spot atones for puppy ad

After pulling an ad that likened laptop neglect to animal abuse (and made cruel sport of them both), Samsung Home Appliances is trying to atone with this Viral Factory spot for EcoBubble washing machines, in which a bear parades around in his boxers like he's Rodney Dangerfield or something. The ad is clearly pandering, but at least it's well-made pandering, even if the bear forgets to use detergent when he washes his pelt. But I'd rather think about that than how long it's been since he washed those boxers. Via CNET. David Kiefaber is a frequent contributor to Adweek's creativity blog, AdFreak.
