Samsung picked Bobby Farrelly, known for directing famous comedy films “There’s Something About Mary,” “Dumb and Dumber” and “Kingpin,” to direct his first ever TV commercial. The 90-second Galaxy Note Super Bowl commercial featured the infectious song “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” song by The Darkness, along with celebrity appearances by The Darkness’ lead singer Justin Hawkins, Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr, football star Brian Urlacher and pro-skateboarder Paul Rodriguez.

That was over the top.
