Four of the short films have been gathered at a dedicated website, SmartnSimple.tv.

The films will also be aired on Dailymotion.com and promoted through Facebook and Twitter.

As part of the campaign, individuals can enter a competition to win the Samsung robotic vacuum cleaner, the NaviBot, by uploading videos of their own housework tips.

Samsung's push into online video content comes two weeks after Philips launched a comic online video series allowing it to highlight its products.
