Timothée Chalamet Praises Apple's Taste in Ongoing TV+ Ad Campaign

Apple is continuing on with its Apple TV+ ad campaign starring actor Timothée Chalamet, today sharing a new spot where Chalamet praises Apple's taste and laments that the TV+ streaming service is "missing someone" while staring at a portrait of himself.

Chalamet uses an iPad to longingly look through various ‌Apple TV+‌ shows and movies, naming the high-profile actors and actresses that star in the TV+ content. "Alright Apple, clearly you have taste," says Chalamet, and the spot eventually ends with him asking Apple to "talk."

The ad is similar to a "Call Me" spot that Apple shared earlier in January, where Chalamet expressed his desire to star in an ‌Apple TV+‌ show. Apple's ad campaign is clearly leading up to announcement of an ‌Apple TV+‌ series or movie starring Chalamet, as the company did something similar with Jon Hamm before he was announced as a cast member of "The Morning Show."

Maybe it is just me, but I find these ads to be quite cringe to watch. It is a tv streaming service, not a cure for cancer, so maybe they can go lighter on self praise

It’s a little jarring to see the overlap of people on a tech site who are apparently also unfamiliar with Dune.
What does Chalamet have to do with the film Dune? :p

This is advertising that feels like it misses most of the USA, given that most of us are not actors trying to decide on our next job(s), because that's what it feels like: a come-on to acting talent to favor their projects.

It obviously also shows a nice selection of Apple's programming, but its primary aim feels like it's aimed at acting talent.

I could be wrong. My being wrong has happened before and will happen again!
