Diary: Turkey of the Week - Leo Burnett Toronto/Samsung's LCD high-definition TV

Ian Darby is amazed Leo Burnett Toronto's latest ad for Samsung's LCD high-definition TV ever got made:

"It's the fact the televisions look so beautiful that makes this ad so unforgivable. The whole scenario is ridiculous: a young man trades his World Cup tickets for his boss' Samsung TV, then invites his friends around to watch it. The fact that he's wearing a terrible jacket and tie to watch the match, and the cheesy voiceover ('now your friends think you're a genius') add to the dated feel of the spot."
