Samsung Galaxy Camera: “Be You” - 1 min 50s

Samsung embrace the remake trend with this ad based on influencer Shea Glover's 'You're Beautiful' film. Glover's 2015 original has currently garnered almost eighteen-million views - no doubt some of which belong to Samsung.

The formula remains the same: Glover compliments a diverse cast and films their varying reactions. Beats hearing it from James Blunt, that's for sure. It may prove too sweet for some palates, but it's a shrewd bid to engage the YouTube generation.
