Samsung’s naughty 'penis' billboard is a fake

2013-11-27 11:02
Cape Town – A photo of a Samsung billboard displaying a rather awkward spelling mistake is a fake, a Samsung spokesperson told Channel24 on Wednesday.

According to reports earlier in the week, the billboard - which reads "The penis, mightier than the finger" instead of the original idiom "the pen is mightier than the sword" – was erected in Egypt, Pakistan, Kenya and France.

Samsung provided the following statement regarding the photo of the billboard: "The alleged typo on a Galaxy Note 10.1 billboard, of course, is fake. Attached is the actual photo from Cromford Road, London as well as the link on Google maps of the actual site below."

Here’s the google maps link and these are the photos of the actual billboard provided by Samsung:
