The rivalry between Samsung and Apple is one of the biggest in the tech world, and the American company is hogging the limelight at the moment.
Apple’s latest flagship device, the iPhone X, has dominated headlines since its release late last week, and Samsung aren’t about to let it pass without comment.
The Korean giant put out a pretty brutal advert to mark the occasion.
The advert probably mocks Apple more than it promotes its own products, but Samsung’s marketing team certainly pulled no punches with that one. They definitely tried to point out every perceived flaw with Apple’s phones.
It was so thorough, in fact, that one guy’s haircut is even used to take shots at the new iPhone.
Did you spot him?
That guy’s hair definitely looks familiar.
The advert has been declared a “masterpiece” even by apparent Apple fans.

Although the comments under Samsung’s tweet have become a warzone.

Apple isn’t in the parts manufacturing sector. End of the day, Apple has the bigger profit margin than Samsung could ever imagine.— Saad Syed (@jonnyquesty2k) November 5, 2017
It’s not the first time Samsung has used an advert to attack Apple, but its reignited the long battle between the fans of both companies.
Samsung: you can turn your phone into desktop computer
Apple: watch me sing Bohemian Rhapsody as fox, pig, and rooster.— Henry Manampiring (@newsplatter) November 6, 2017

I tried sleeping but I can't, Samsung disrespected Apple. The rice part was the part that pained me.— J Sama (@StigEzeh) November 5, 2017
