Apple Debuts New iPhone 5s TV Ad 'Parenthood'

Apple today debuted a new iPhone 5s TV ad called "Parenthood", focusing on various iOS apps and products for parents.


The ad features "Life of Dreams" by singer-songwriter Julie Doiron and showcases apps such as My Teeth, Drawnimal, Pet Manager Pro, and Kinsa. Devices shown off in the ad include the Withings Withbaby baby monitor, Kinsa's smart thermometer, and the Parrot Flower Power.

The ad ends with the "You're more powerful than you think" tagline, which was initially featured in Apple's first "Powerful" ad in April and in its "Strength" ad earlier this month.

Turned me way way off.

In that case, I recommend finding better material for masturbation.

Looks lovely, too bad that's not the way parents really use their iPhone.

Realistic iPhone commercial:
- Kid wants to tell parent something, parent's face buried in iPhone looking at email
- Kid is unattended while parent plays Candy Crush, kid breaks something, parent blames and yells at kid (after finishing Candy Crush round)
- Kid keeps talking in the car, parent puts something on phone and tells the kid to "here, be quiet and play with this"
- Kid buys $1000 in In-App purchases. Parent blames Apple.

Apple, changing the world!
