Apple's new iPod commercial focuses on colors instead of features

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Coming on the heels of reports that some iPod touch orders are being shipped out, Apple on Wednesday released a new TV ad for its iPod family of products, highlighting the revamped media players first announced in September.

The commercial, first seen at Apple's iPhone and iPod special event in September, is called "Bounce" and features the entire iPod product line, from the smallest iPod shuffle to the fifth-generation iPod touch.

Using Willy Moon's song "Yeah Yeah," the spot focuses on the variety of colorways now offered throughout the iPod line, starting with the flagship iPod touch, which "breaks apart" into two units, then into three iPod nanos, which splash into a sea of iPod shuffles.

Living up to its tagline, "Every iPod now in color," the commercial marks Apple's return to fun, colorful iPod-centric TV ads after taking a turn toward the unexpected this past summer.

    What they did not do today was send out invitations for a media event next week.

    Cut a little too quickly, but I love the premise.

    My son can't make up his mind about the color. I am taking him to the store to choose one on the spot when they hit the stores.

    And far harder to fit in a pocket and use in any capacity like you'd use an iPod touch, thereby rendering it pointless as an offered replacement…

    Probably because they didn't.


    If you're gonna troll, don't be so bad at it.


    And no, that's NOT "free license" for you to troll if you do it well. The "If you're going to troll, shut up and go away" is implied. image

    So when do the lawsuits drop????

    My daughters 4th Gen iPod Touch lasted a week before she dropped it, and the screen shattered...

    I didn't see any fine print saying "Do not bounce your iPods"...

    This means that full iPod lineup, iPad lineup and iPhone could receive color. Making it IOS representing color.
