Apple debuts new Christmas ad: ‘The Song’

Apple has debuted a new TV ad for Christmas 2014, “The Song,” on U.S. broadcast and cable television.

In the 90-second spot, a granddaughter rerecords a special song for her grandmother.

With a Mac, iPhone or iPad you have the power to create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time. It could be a movie, a homemade card or a song that brings two generations closer together.

  1. It’s a good ad, considering the season. We expect everything to come with extra sugar around Christmas.

    Everybody has a favorite song from that time in their lives, and they chose a good one. Woody Allen used “Our Love Is Here To Stay” for his movie, “Manhattan.”

    My grandmother and grandfather’s love song way back then was, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.”

    But they didn’t sing to it.

  2. Brilliant war-era-movie style emotion. Love it! Great to see a brilliant A-class ad after the recent B/C-class iPhone ads. Also the new iPad Air2 “Change Is In the Air” is also brilliant with lots of excitement and drive—it really rocks! Such a relief to see Apple ads once again on top of their game —firing on all cylinders! Let’s put these guys to work and let’s have a renaissance in Apple advertising (and inspire-me mini documentaries as well). Can’t wait to see what they come up with! Keep on rocking’/coonin’.
