maxresdefaultLeo Burnett Argentina has created Samsung’s first commercial aimed at the LatAm market, as part of a new global campaign for the brand, entitled ‘Do what you can’t’.

The #dowhatyoucant concept originated with Samsung’s 2016 Olympic campaign ‘The chant’ with the aim to extend the message into an overarching brand philosophy, trading on emotion as well as information. This new approach aims to counteract the negative response to Samsung S7.
