The spot, "It doesn't take a genius", sends up Apple’s recent launch of its iPhone 6 and Apple watch, which was streamed live online.

It was created by Y&R, São Paulo, Brazil, shows two men in a Apple looking store screaming at their two-year innovation of ‘a bigger screen’, which Samsung already offers.

It also mocks how the Apple live stream kept freezing during the launch. The ad has been shared over 10,000 times on social media, according to tracking platform, Unruly.
