I caught the new Apple/Coldplay commercial for the first time, last night, during American Idol.  I knew instantly that it was a commercial for iTunes, it wasn’t too difficult to figure out.  I thought it looked great and excited me for the new Coldplay release. The song and performance blended perfectly with the iTunes style. I definitely enjoyed the ad.

Never have I been amazed by a commerical.. I think it was an awesome commerical and almost mind-blowing to me.. I had forgotten how much of a good band Coldplay was. I haven’t listened to their band that much, but this’ll definately be my next purchase.
