Tim Burton stars in this Samsung Oscar commercial, which is the last in a series of ads telling the story of transforming Unicorn Apocalypse from a mobile game into a movie.

In the commercial, a group of developers sit around the office as famous director Tim Burton walks in for a meeting. Burton professes his love of Unicorn Apocalypse and they all go about brainstorming for the movie. The concept of this ad is specifically tailored for airing during the Oscars, hence the famous director and movie reference.

What is interesting about this Oscar commercial is it doesn't talk about the actual product at all. In fact, the few times the Samsung tablet is shown at all it only gets a few seconds on screen. This allows viewers to be more concerned with the story evolving than the product being sold to them. Stats for Unicorn Apocalypse Mock Movies Trending: Older & Chilly
