Samsung Turn The Bezel

Samsung is promoting the Samsung Gear S2’s circular user experience with “Samsung Turn The Bezel”, a commercial featuring kaleidoscope-inspired choreography set to Cash Cash 2013 hit “Kiss the Sky”. Each turn of the bezel on the huge watch brings an app to life with synchronized choreography. The commercial opens with a circle of 28 performers in white, joined by 18 drummers in yellow, guitarists in red, vocalists in green and keyboard players in shades of red and purple. With a turn of the dial to S Health the musicians are replaced by fitness enthusiasts. With a turn to the Messages app the stage is set as a diner for a catch up with Sam.
