According to an unverified submission, Apple sent out the following casting call through a major talent agency this week to star in an ad for a "new product":
"Apple is look[ing] for a man and woman in their mid-20's to film a demo of a new Apple product. They are not looking for recognizable faces or names, and ideally the person would be "average to mildly attractive with nice hands". They must also have the ability to play the guitar or piano at an intermediate level.
The shoot will take place in Hollywood sometime in the next 6 to 8 weeks. Please let me know if you have any clients interested in this unique opportunity.
Again, Apple is not interested in recognizable talent. The focus will be on the new product and not the person."
Apple recently shut down their 5th Avenue store to shoot a television ad for what was believed to be the 3G-capable iPhone.
