LG promotes Optimus series with the Lay-Z Santa Rap


In the first of what will certainly be an onslaught of commercials and promotional videos this holiday season, LG has released a funny holiday promotional YouTube video for their Optimus 3D and Optimus Black smartphones. In the video, the Lay-Z Santa raps about the two LG smartphones, with a mix of humor built in.

Whether this will be one of the better holiday-themed promotional videos of the 2011 holiday season remains to be seen. If nothing else, you should probably check out the video below for your morning lulz.

    Lol.. Idk whether to say that’s terrible or just roll with it and assume they know that too and call it a good commercial. I’m at a loss here!

    Oddly enough I like the Galaxy Nexus’ beatboxing commercial better.

    • Anthony Domanico

      haha. Yeah, it’s one of those where it’s so bad it might just be catchy. I still think the best commercial thus far is the Samsung GS II making fun of Apple people.

      • mikeyDroid

        Yup, after listening to it three times (yea don’t ask) it gets better, haha..

        Agreed! The SGS2 one is great!

        • Wilson Lara

          Yeah you’re right. It’s way better the 3rd time watching.
          And the SGS2 is the best commercial.

          • Matt

            by the way . .. optimus 3 D? optimus black? they had F R O Y O for a longgg time -,-

        • WarDrake

          This one is ridiculous enough to be good
          But the SGS II one is just plain funny ^_^

      • stenzor

        I really like the “calling all…” Galaxy Nexus ad as well

    • charliethesuperturtle

  • Angie Wimberly


    • Xallies

      • WarDrake

        exactly, so bad it came out quite interesting ^_^

        • Dev-CreativeReach

          So stupid it was funny

  • SuperAndroid

    Wow, I so want an Optimus now that I’ve just seen that ad…

  • wzietek9

    I think that was a great idea, gangsta santa lol.

    • Anthony Domanico

      haha… yeah it was a fun little commercial, but I doubt it will have people lining up en masse to purchase an Optimus smartphone.

  • OnIn2

    Tongue-in-Cheek commercial that’s actually pretty good rap (if you like that stuff). Just hope it doesn’t get early air time and the little ones see it.

    Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • spintrex

    Ken Jeong should have played as Santa but maybe that would’ve been too much…then again I don’t really get where this commercial is going to begin with lol Still entertaining

  • Kaote

    As if I needed another reason to not buy an Optimus phone. Not sure who the target audience is for this commercial.

  • Wilson Lara

    LOL.. It’s Young Ho Ho

  • mikeyDroid

    I had to come back and listen again and by again I mean at least the 6th time. Damnit!

  • stenzor

    This looks like something I would have made in highschool

  • cenwesi

    If only they will spend the time correcting the bad OS they released for all their devices…Nice try buy it will NOT work LG.

  • pikahatonjon

    what is this. i dont even.

  • aj

    Haha. That was entertaining but is it just me or did the subtitles seem slightly off. Like it says ” optimus its very cool aint you know?” but to me it sounds like hes saying “optimus its pretty cool to let you know?” but maybe its just me.

    • WarDrake

      NAh, it’s nto just you ^_^

  • FutureShock

    That ad was so atrocious it was awesome. Didn’t even know that was possible.

  • nawatsgirl

    I didn’t know santa could rap as well as he can wrap!

  • melvinjavier

    this makes make shame of my lg optimus 3d and black lol just kidding, many are upset with LG but im gonna stick to it :D

  • Soharang

    Its singing part is funny, “Optimus~”. But this ad is lots of fun, though.

  • Luke Haviland

    they could have written better lyrics.
    should have gave some kid rapping in the streets $20 to write a better song.

  • phaet2112

    Should have had an old santa instead of a young santa. Or santa with christmas “elves” bouncing all around him to fill in the mood.

  • eioous

    Daaaammmmmmmnnnnnnnn………Santa is straight PIMP. Hey Big S, how about for Christmas you get me some of those kick ace gloves.

  • carlosestremera

    epic fail

  • poopster
