Apple TV commercial airs [updated]

Apple late yesterday began airing the first television commercial for the Apple TV. The 30-second spot, which has already run on several networks, features a scene from the Jack Black movie “School of Rock” with a voice over saying, “It’s on your computer. It’s on your iPod. Now, it’s on your TV.” The Apple TV ad can be viewed below.

Update: As pointed out by “Burnsy” in the comments, the voice over is done by John Krasinski who plays Jim Halpert on NBC’s “The Office.”

Update 2: Apple has now posted high resolution versions of the commercial on its website.

Yawn. It greatly exemplifies what a passive activity watching videos is.

A bit off-topic, but I don’t remember the guitars ever being plugged into amps in the movie, except for the concert. Dewey (Jack Black) had his portable amp on his pants, but no one else did.
