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.

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."

Of course, a handful of other Apple devices, including the Apple Watch, can be spotted in the ad.

a handful of Apple products = x2

The very height of journalistic articulacation.
