This Samsung Ad Is A Festival Of Cringe

It came in near the buzzer, but it's safe to say that Samsung may have released 2013's worst ad.

The spot, titled "Are You Geared Up?", is for Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch (read our review here). Featuring cringe-worthy acting and an entirely unrealistic romance, it's 150 seconds of awful.
