iPod ads “do a terrific job of seducing and selling”

“That fact was borne out in the results of Ad Track, USA TODAY’s weekly consumer survey. While iPod has a somewhat narrower potential audience than many products, 19% of consumers familiar with the ads like them “a lot,” about the Ad Track overall average of 21%. And 20% consider the ads “very effective” vs. the average of 21%.

The ads’ appeal ranged across age groups. Though they were most popular with 25- to 29-year olds (29% like the ads “a lot”), 19% of consumers ages 50 to 64 gave them the top mark. Just 2% of those over 65 like the ads “a lot,” however.”

I think you have to have some idea of what an MP3 player is before you see the iPod commercials, but it’s painfully obvious if you do.

I had an iPod before the commercials but they still made me want to yell “I’VE ALREADY GOT ONE BECAUSE I’M JUST THAT COOL.”

I actually did yell that at the television on more than one occasion.  Made others look at me oddly.

yeh, i agree with systimax, they don’t tell you anything except “if you buy *this* you will end up doing *this*... still, makes people want them even when they don’t know what they are raspberry perhaps they could’ve slipped the words mp3 player in somewhere, wouldn’t've hurt them
