Unofficial iPhone New York ad appears


An unofficial iPhone commercial based in New York City has debuted on the website The spot, available in sixty and thirty second versions, shows people of varying ethnicities and dialects talking about iPhone features in their native tounges, with translation provided by subtitles. A casting call for the spot was posted on Craigslist back in April, and called for “people of diverse ethnic backgrounds discussing different functions and attributes of the unreleased phone in their native tongue while participating in everyday activities.” The ad, dubbed “iPhone New York,” was directed by Alec Sutherland and features the song “Young Folks” by Peter Bjorn and John.

I think this ad is pretty good, and maybe the best one in all iPhone ads. It shows a popular iPhone to all of us! Different culture, different languages, but same city, same iPhone.
