@#1: Yeah, totally a Pink Floyd lift. I was expecting to hear the loons next.
Not real. End to end, it’s 18 seconds. You can air a :15, or you can air a :30, but nobody sells :18 slots.
Is it just me or are those bleeps at the end from Pink Floyd’s Echoes?
@#1: That was my first thought, I’m glad other people noticed the pings. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some Floyd to listen to.
It’s a touch screen device… that nothing can touch. Sounds like typical ad work to me.
Wrong kind of apple, too…er, Apple II
If they had run it, it would’ve gone down in ad history as a sad, pitiful shot over Apple’s bow.
Aren’t they just sonar pings?
I think this ad is pretty audacious – if the blackberry is worth it I think it makes the point well.
@5 No buckshot if you are using slugs
Yep… Those dings are definitely ripped from Floyd’s “Echoes.”
Isn’t that the sound of a shotgun being cocked? Wouldn’t there be a spray of buckshot along with that?
Touch screen, nothing can touch… good point.
Yeah this ad would have been a complete disaster, good thing nobody ever saw i— oh
Hell ya, screw Apple! Remember that commercial from the 80s where they portrayed IBM as some Orwellian nightmare because…
“We [IBM] have created for the first time in all history a garden of pure ideology, where each worker may bloom, secure from the pests of any contradictory true thoughts.”
“We [IBM] are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause.”
Well despite how many commercials Apple makes havingJohn Hodgman look lame in oder to make themselves look cool. Those quotes sound alot more like Apple these days. With their whole ideas of their lifestyle, streamlined consumer line products and uniform aesthetic.
This looks like one of those ads that an ad agency would mock up, as a pitch or just for fun.
