Awesome. Ozomatli’s an awesome band and seeing them get picked for an iPod spot should garner some much deserved attention.

Is it just me, or is that commercial campaign getting just a bit tired?

I met steriogram shortly after they got their recording contract, they’re pretty cool guys, they gave me and my friends some tickets to a show of theirs but unfortunatly we couldn’t make it. I hope to run into them again sometime that’d be cooooool!!!!!

its kinda weird that jets are you going to be my girl is a rip off of iggy pops lust for life, steriograms walkie talkie man is a rip off of the kgbs fortune and fame(they are almost the same song!)

i hope apple has better luck with this one

Might this mean the 60 gig is around the corner?  They had given the campaign a rest….

Ummm.  Little - have you ever heard of influences?  Sorry it took 30 years for people to start appreciating your Stooges…

And the Stooges, as innovative as they were, were just a rip off of the Doors and all of their blues influences.

stooges and doors…..NOTHING alike.

If I danced around with my iPod like that, it would most definately FREEZE.

This campaign is still stronger than 98% of the other ad spots out there. This is a little long though, the 15 sec spots are the best. This one is definately trying to reach out to an urban audience with the song and dancers, which is an important community as most popular music bought is of the urban influence.

i am also growing tired of these ipod dancer ads.  apple needs to mix things up.

Posted by StinkieDMB in Pittsburgh, PA on September 14, 2004 at 10:39 AM (CDT)


ill give iggy pop as an influence… but the kgb song(i believe written in 99, and on the 2000 road trip soundtrack) is almost the same song

Posted by little on September 14, 2004 at 11:01 AM (CDT)


go Ozomalti. although they did an awful job of cutting that song up and mixing it with the commercial.

if i’m not mistaken, Ozomalti’s also on the Madden 2005 soundtrack.

I think these ads are getting to be obnoxious.  Spazzy dancing and annoying music aren’t that appealing after awhile…

The cowboy line dancing commercial was pretty good…

the steriogram commerical was much better in my opinion

Posted by todd2fst4u on September 14, 2004 at 7:00 PM (CDT)


Apple is gonna have to come up with something new cause these commercials have gotten old.

Like my name says “You Guys Are Dorks”

Hey Ryan, you Moron, the guys who make the iPod spots aren’t the same guys that made that line dancing commercial. FYI
