You tell me? Is that a Spartan, because that alien sure isn't an Elite. Who's in charge of the marketing here? Where is Bungie?
Bungie must be cool with this, because it's still on TV. I don't understand why Microsoft would license out the Master Chief or any other Spartan for a Samsung product. Oh wait, it's because it's not Halo. It's a straight up jack move!
There is nothing in the commercial that mentions anything about Halo. Bungie hasn't posted the youtube link on their page, like you think they would. Something must be at play here that I don't fully understand. The alien is nothing like anything in the Halo series. The space marine that swoops to save the "Spartan" could be a UNSC, but that's not clear either. What the fuck is he flying by the way? Looks like a flying Horseshoe Crab spaceship.
The detail in the "Spartans" helmet has a circular air module on the front unlike any Halo armor permutation I have seen. Although on each side of the helmet you can see the flashlights(or little holes by the ears.) The body armor appears to be a cheap rip off with no real detail. And why the fuck is he carrying a steak knife? The only real "Spartan" detail is in the helmet on this Jimmy. Somebody tell me what I'm missing here.
That Samsung commercial is whack compared to REAL Halo live action commercial. Check out the real stuff below.
