Leo Burnett mixes Doris Day into new Samsung spot


Vintage favorite
“Que Será Será”
is the soundtrack
for a commercial
celebrating the
Galaxy smartphone’s
10th anniversary

Leo Burnett has dropped a new spot for Samsung Galaxy to help kick off a year that not only celebrates the 10th anniversary of Galaxy smartphones, but also sets the foundation for its next wave of products.

And they’re using a classic Doris Day song to do it.

The brand is giving her song “Que Será Será,” recorded back in the 1950s, new life as the soundtrack for a spot entitled, The Future.

Directed by Pulse Films Sam Pilling, the 30-second spot effortlessly juxtaposes the relaxed attitude of the song with the brand’s visionary innovation.



The anthem also brings life to the potential of technologies that previously only existed in the imagination, seamless multi-device experiences, artificial intelligence, and radical new displays among them. Samsung’s 5G products and foldable display technology are also teased.

Apple has established its brand as the choice of artists, but here Samsung showcases designers and tattoo artists, gamers and more enjoying the benefits of Samsung.
