The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing is just around the corner. Samsung has partnered with CNN films on a new QLED 8K TV commercial that celebrates the Apollo 11 achievement and recognizes the importance of television on our modern world.
The Apollo 11 landing was witnessed by millions of people around the world ushering in a new era of TV technology. Of course, Samsung’s play here is their new QLED 8K TV technology which brings the highest resolution into your home anyone has ever seen. Having seen the company’s 8K technology up close and in person, I have to admit it looks really awesome.
“TV technology has been essential in bringing the world together to experience critical moments in modern history,” said Grace Dolan, Vice President, Home Entertainment Demand Generation, Samsung Electronics America. “As we mark the 50thanniversary of Samsung Electronics and the first steps on the moon by a human, it’s only fitting that our Making History QLED 8K TV commercial and multimedia campaign with CNN celebrates the past while giving a glimpse into how Samsung will continue to bring people together in the future through the power of 8K.”
The Making History commercial produced jointly by Samsung and CNN Films is below:
Besides this commercial, Samsung is also sponsoring CNN Films new documentary, Apollo 11, which is scheduled to air June 23rd 9 PM and 11 PM EST with limited commercial interruptions. Within that documentary, there will be another Samsung special showcasing the making of the commercial they companies worked on together.
The new documentary is a joint effort between CNN Films and Miller’s Statement Pictures and it took 2-years to complete. The pair also worked on a short documentary called The Last Steps which was about the final NASA lunar Mission, Apollo 17.
If you miss the initial premiere of the documentary on June 23rd, there will be an encore that will air on June 29th and July 20th, both at 9 PM EST. You can also check out Samsung’s 8K QLED TV lineup on the company’s website.
