I picked up the new James Bond DVD sets a few weeks ago and started to watch Dr. No (1962) this past weekend. I was amazed at how similar a portion of the opening credits were to the current line of iPod commercials.

I took a screen shot from the movie and have posted it next to a screen shot from the latest iPod commercial. What do you think?

i watched Dr. No this past weekend, too! i thought the opening credits were neat but they didn't remind me of the new iPod ads. i can see the resemblance, though. perhaps someone at Apple was inspired by Sir Connery's first Bond film.

It is a possibility.

Gotta luv those politically incorrect Bond opening credits! Too bad they have shyed away from them in Casino Royale!
