Apple posts new, non-silhouette iPod + iTunes ad


Breaking with its well-known series of “silhouette” ads, Apple Computer this evening introduced a new 1,000 Songs television commercial, depicting the piece-by-piece construction of a city from album cover building blocks. The blocks then transform into a tornado that funnels into the top of an iPod nano, followed by the tagline, “1,000 songs in your pocket.” Already spotted by readers on television, Apple’s new ad can be seen online at this link; high-definition (720p/1080p) and iPod versions are also available.

Just watched that spot during Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Was thinking, it has to be an Apple commercial and was right!

That commercial ROCKS!!! That’s some amazing artistry and the metaphor can’t be beat! Way to go, Apple!

This is a very good advert. I was never a fan of the silhouette people adverts, because they did not tell viewers (in my view) what the iPod is. The new ad does this. I hope Apple does adverts like this for the shuffle and 5G iPod, since the number of songs on these iPods varies.

It looks like the Borg “unicomplex” from the last episode of Star Dreck: Voyager.

I can’t wait until someone claims that Apple stole their idea.
