Iran is upset over a television promotional spot for Israeli cable provider HOT, and is threatening to ban an electronics firm whose product is featured in the spot. The commercial shows the characters from a popular show, Asfur, portraying Mossad agents dressed up as women, at an outdoor cafe somewhere in Iran.
The characters are impressed by a Samsung Galaxy tablet and accidentally press a button that causes a nearby Iranian nuclear facility to explode.
The cable provider is offering the tablet to new subscribers.
Samsung Electronics said on Saturday it had not been involved in the production of the spot. We have absolutely nothing to do with this television spot, a spokesman for the electronics giant told AFP. The commercial was produced by HOT without Samsungs knowledge or participation, the company said in a statement. It should be noted that HOT cable network utilized a GALAXY Tab in its advertisement solely as a promotional gift."
As a member of the global community, Samsung is committed to demonstrating respect for all people and cultures around the globe, it added.
