Samsung hires Kristen Bell to help you forget about Apple

Instead of constantly pummeling Apple, Samsung releases an ad for its Galaxy Tab S that features Kristen Bell, her husband Dax Shepard, and the joys of distraction.

If you think Samsung has spent all its recent hours tossing beer bottles from the audience as Apple appears on the world's stage, you'd be right.

At some point, though, you just have to distract yourself. You also have to remind yourself that there are other ways to advertise. Like hiring Kristen Bell, for example.

So in a new ad for its Galaxy Tab S, Bell, the star of "Veronica Mars" and the ineffably true "House Of Lies," the pregnant Bell is seen toiling through life with her husband Dax Shepard.

They are a stressed Hollywood couple. They have obligations. They have responsibilities. They have auditions.

Somehow, though, that little Samsung tablet manages to distract them and keep them the sane, loving couple we all (don't) know them to be.

They can laugh. They can tell each other little white lies. They can cuddle up on the sofa instead of going to a dull black tie do.

In essence, if you want the perfect life with the perfect spouse in the perfect Hollywood house, get yourself a Samsung Galaxy Tab S.

It will distract you from ever realizing that you'll never have the perfect life with the perfect spouse in the perfect Hollywood house.
