Flash! Ah-Ah!

Now, I have gotten few laughs out of new phones using “Adobe Flash” as a selling point in their commercials before, but this really takes it to the next level. Now, I must say that this is actually not the first time I’ve heard “Flash” by Queen used in reference to Adobe Flash, (ytmnd.com beat these folks by about five years.) but for this commercial, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. See it for yourself:

30 years after this song was produced it’s being invoked to mention a product invented 15 years before this commercial was produced.

Oh, and for those who don’t get the joke, the idea here is that because the Apple iPhone was not designed to be able to use Adobe Flash, any other phone that can handle Adobe Flash have a selling point that they can abuse the crap out of.
