Samsung's funny Mother's Day ad celebrates moms in a unique way: by highlighting their less-than-stellar texting skills.

Moms are great at lots of things: whipping up meals with little to no ingredients in the fridge, dishing out heaps of indispensable life advice and generally being a shoulder to cry on. For the most part, though, moms suck at texting. This clever commercial points out the most common texting faux pas that moms all over the world commit, from sending blank messages to non-stop rambling. Viewers are also encouraged to share their funny texts from their moms using the hashtag #TextsFromMom.

Most mother's day ads tend to be overly sentimental to the point of sappiness. In comparison, this ad is amusing and light-hearted. By diverting from the sappy tradition, Samsung's funny Mother's Day ad definitely stands out.
