Well you've got to give props to Samsung, if only for being quick to the punch. Barely a day after Apple's iPhone and Watch media event, Samsung Mobile began posting a series of web ads mocking Apple's recent product announcements from all angles.

The entire series is called "It Doesn't Take a Genius" and there are six -- yes, six videos in total which make fun of Apple's recent media event for a variety of reasons. Personally, I think the majority of these clips are pretty humorous, though they're clearly not going to have any discernible impact on sales or perception.

In the first installment, we see Samsung poking fun at the live streaming troubles Apple experienced this past Tuesday. The video naturally features two dudes dressed in typical Apple Genius garb and hanging out in what closely resembles an Apple retail store.

The second video pokes fun at the new iPhone 6 models and their "revolutionary" bigger screens.

The third video makes fun of iOS for its lack of multitasking windows.

The fourth video is probably the weakest of the bunch as it tries to mock the iPhone for not having a stylus -- oh excuse me, an S-Pen -- like the Galaxy Note 4.

The fifth video touts the fast charging capability of the Galaxy Note 4 against the iPhone's lack thereof.

And in the final video, Samsung's Apple-posing duo lamely try to make fun of the Apple Watch.
