Greece embraces Windows Phone with new holiday ad

Greece may have 99 problems these days but Windows Phone ain't one 'em.

In a new ad from Vodafone, four Windows Phones are featured in a pretty funny take on organizing a holiday party. The ad highlights the Samsung Omnia W, HTC Titan, HTC Radar and then features the Nokia Lumia 800 in all its multi-color glory, showing how that company's namesake still carries a lot of weight in international markets.

We always like to see our friends world-wide get into the Windows Phone craze and this ad goes a long way in helping to promote these new devices.

  • Daniel, that mainstream music reference seems a bit out if character for you, don't you think? ;-)
  • lol, I was actually thinking of the Joseph Ducreux-meme, so I'm back to obscure again ;-)
  • I'm glad that a carrier is actually investing in Windows Phone and marketing it, but why do phones always have to look that bad on TV? The interface is eiter blown up or simply not the right one, the sounds are random and completely different, and finally those 3D models at the end looked terrible. I'm sure it can't be that hard.
  • Hi from Greece. I can verify that Nokia is a very popular brand here. Windows Phone not so much but things are getting better (especially with Nokia in the game). It's going to be an exciting 2012. Happy new year everyone
  • do you think Yanni can endorse windows phone? Love his music on the piano all the time.
  • No turkey jokes here yet? I do love the push the ad makes as well as showing off the social integration of the UI.
