Apple Shares 'Welcome Home' HomePod Ad Directed by Spike Jonze and Starring FKA Twigs

Apple this evening uploaded a new "Welcome Home" HomePod video to its YouTube channel, which was directed by well-known filmmaker Spike Jonze.

The four minute spot stars singer and dancer FKA Twigs and is set to a new song from Anderson .Paak called "Til It's Over." In the video, FKA Twigs arrives home after a long day and asks HomePod to play something she'd like, which she starts to dance to in a magical realism-style scene.


This is Apple's first longer-form HomePod ad. The company previously shared a series of short 15-second HomePod videos featuring the word "HomePod" animated in various ways, each set to a different song. Apple plans to feature the four minute "Welcome Home" video online, while a shorter cut will be played on television.

Apple's HomePod has been available for purchase since early February, and it's received largely positive reviews when it comes to sound quality, but reactions to Siri have not been quite as favorable. The HomePod can be purchased from Apple's website for $349.

Well, if your routine is as miserable as hers, nothing can brighten the end of your day like a good hit of LSD and a HomePod.

Really? All I got was that if I bought a HomePod I'd be sad and lonely with a digital companion (who doesn't understand me half the time)

Music brings out the best out of us, even in our darkest times. Its not that complex to comprehend from the advert.

This is superb. Spike Jonze is one of the great directors working today and everything works in the ad, the music is apposite, the dancing by FKA Twigs is beautiful, fun and mesmerising. This is the commercial which Apple should have launched the HomePod with more than a month ago. I'd love to see this played at the cinema before a movie.
