I just sent this email to Samsung:
I am disgusted by your recent misandrist commercial. To whom are you pandering by showing a smug "superior" woman who fantasizes about using a male-invented product (which operates in conjunction with other male-invented products, using still other male-invented technologies) to transform a stereotypically "defective" man into a slave-like servant? Let me guess. You are trying to sell your product to useless "empowered" women who consider themselves naturally entitled to pampering and unqualified dominion over the men in their lives.
May I suggest that this is a misguided marketing strategy? The purchasing power of your targeted demographic will soon be dwindling, as the tightening economy will eventually result in drastically reduced monies to fund their cushy careers in HR, Non-Profits, and as do-nothing government clerks. If you were to hire an adverting agency that has the foresight to reject the current cultural trend of man-bashing (good luck with that, but it's worth a try) you might be pleasantly surprised by the public response from millions of real live men and women, who don't find that crap cute.
In the meantime I refuse to spend even a dime on Samsung products. I will also use my platforms in the Men's Human Rights Movement, to recommend that males and the women who respect males, boycott your company.
