Turkey of the week: Huawei's ad brings together comedians without any humour

It's puzzling how this ad manages to recruit some decent comedy talent and yet completely fail at being remotely amusing.

From the infantile script that takes childish swipes at other smartphone manufacturers, to the lack of creativity displayed in its execution, this ad is a gruelling one to get through. We understand it was filmed without a creative director – a trick Huawei would be wise not to repeat.
