Samsung’s Virtual Reality Ostrich Ad Is Delightfully Weird

Getting people interested in virtual reality gear is tricky. It's pretty much impossible to convey the VR experience without some hands-on time. So what's a marketer to do?

Samsung's been pretty good at finding clever ways to advertise around that problem. Its Gear VR holiday ad showed a bunch of people trying the headset for the first time, presenting what's really a single-user experience as a family affair.

Now, for its latest go, Samsung went Full Weird, featuring a CGI ostrich who dons the headset to achieve the ultimate dream of any flightless bird. The idea? In VR, anything can be possible.
