The powerful LG G5, which trumped Samsung’s Galaxy S7 in the preliminary benchmark test, is now available in the U.S. for purchase.
As it turns out, this device debuted in South Korea very recently and the tech giant has released an interesting commercial, specific to this country, starring actor Jason Statham.
The latest LG G5 ad shows more of Statham and his stunts, than the handset itself. The actor navigates through the commercial with different set of wigs, disguises himself into an old woman and somewhere in the mid of the ad, he breaks into a dance. Following which, he balances himself on a number of angry bulls running through an empty road.
This is definitely a weird ad and we have no idea if this commercial has the potential to drive sales in Korea. Nevertheless, it is fun to watch something entirely different from what we have seen in the recent past.
