Google Nexus S Ad

Google took the wraps off of the Nexus S smartphone yesterday, and with it, unveiled a new ad for the successor to the Nexus One.

While the phone has received positive reviews--TechCrunch writes it is "better than the iPhone in most ways"--Google's ad for the Nexus S has been far less well received.

Technabob calls the ad the "worst commercial of the year," noting, "the background is great and the music is catchy, but mash them together and you get nothing but a distraction." Silicon Alley Insider describes it as "disorienting."

We'll let you be the judge. Check out the Nexus S ad below, then learn more about the phone and its operating system, which is running the latest version of Android.
