Apple Shares 'Someday At Christmas' Ad With Stevie Wonder and Andra Day

A day before Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States, Apple this morning shared a new Christmas-themed ad for 2015, starring artists Stevie Wonder and Andra Day. The 90-second ad centers on Wonder performing his 1967 holiday classic "Someday At Christmas" with family members.


The iconic artist uses a handful of Apple products and apps -- like a MacBook and GarageBand -- to perform his heartfelt song "Someday at Christmas" alongside Day and presumably some younger members of his family. Day can be seen wearing an Apple Watch about one minute into the advertisement.

Wow. Hilarious. The writers here have no editors and are generally inept at the art of writing. Pretty funny.

What happened to arn?
We do have editors. It is unfortunate that our writing isn't up to your standards, but I think we do an acceptable job overall. I hope you will consider that we are attempting to deliver news in a timely manner. I encourage you and other readers to provide feedback at tips@macrumors.com about any of our editorial coverage.

It's a Christmas themed song, not a holiday themed song. I get the desire to want to be inclusive with happy holidays and stuff. Which I don't have a problem with. But holiday songs are stuff like Frosty the Snow Man, and Dashing Through the Snow. A song about hope tied to Christmas, where Christmas appears in the lyrics over and over again. That's not a holiday themed song.
Given that Christmas is a holiday, I would say that "Christmas songs" are actually a subset of "Holiday songs."

The 90-second ad centers on Stevie Wonder and his family preparing for the upcoming holiday season with the help of a few Apple devices.

The artist uses a handful of Apple products and applications -- like a MacBook and GarageBand -- to put together the holiday-themed song "Someday at Christmas" along with Andra Daye and some younger members of his family. Of course, a handful of other Apple devices, including the Apple Watch, can be spotted in the ad.
How many times can you use the phrase "handful of Apple Products" in two paragraphs?
