That first one is terrible. I felt embarrassed for Apple watching it during the stream. But the second one is fine :)

For the talking one, they need two people who sound less alike.

For the singing one, they need two people who sound less like a cat in a dryer.

It would be funny if they had Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton on these ads.

What??? Apple has a long, long, long history of celebrity endorsements. I don't quite understand that portion of your comment.:confused:


My jokes often dont work. I was trying to be a little tongue in cheek. There was a lot of celebrity-endorsement bashing going on here, particularly after the beats deal.

The singing one is obviously tongue in cheek. Not meant to be a Grammy worthy rendition.

The problem with the first one is that it's not at all obvious who is doing the voices.

Two celebrities joking around? Funny ad.

A company joking around and trying to represent itself approachable by being childish? Annoying ad!

I guarantee you, just flashing the two guys on screen for a second would make this ad a million times more relatable. (Obviously, all the deciders liked the ad ... but knowing who the people were!)


EXACTLY how I felt! Without a quick flash of them at the end to make the advert relatable, it's just an in-joke that no-one who's not watched the keynote will get. Seems like a big slip up from the usual excellent apple marketing team. Why get big names like this to do the ad then not even show them?
