So I flip on my TV, and the very first thing I see is a commercial for some Christian rock CD for children (http://www.musicspacekids.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=MusicSpace2&category%5Fname=Music&product%5Fid=MS1211).

And in the middle of all the typical scrolls listing the songs on the CD, they intersperse cuts like this (http://users.adelphia.net/~tjveil/images/iPod-ad.jpg).

Now, I don't remember seeing an actual iPod, but other than that, the images were virtually identical -- silhouettes dancing energetically against rotating vibrant primary colors.

It was just a kind of weird juxtaposition.

And I wonder if, iPod or not, Apple's attorneys would be interested in that ad. :rolleyes:

Maybe they contacted Apple prior to running the commercial. The picture certainly does resemble the iPod ads.

Well, allow me to clarify. The picture I linked to is from an actual iPod ad. What I meant to say was that their clips looked identical -- gyrating dancers, wild colors and all -- except that I don't remember seeing iPods in their clips. Looked like a direct rip-off...very well executed, but still a rip-off.
