I wasn't sure where to put this but it didn't feel like it belonged anywhere else but here. Just saw this commercial for Google Chrome.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1sT7QV8nfU

Now that was a well done commercial in my mind. This struck me right off the bat and really stuck with me after it was over. They really draw out emotion with this ad and only focuses on what it can do for you and bringing you closer to your loved ones.

Seriously, this Apple TV ad is for Season's Greetings only. It does not achieve to grow iPad business. Waste of advertisement money.

Everyone in this forum knows very well about iPad, big and mini, and other Apple products as well. We know those white picture frames in the white TV ad are iPads. It can do video call for grandpa and granddaughter. Good products from Apple. So we don't need this TV ad to tell us to buy iPad, because we all want iPad.

For the people who are new to iPad, they have no idea why there are two white picture frames on a white background. At the end they know they are Season's Greetings Christmas cards from Apple, nice and warm feeling TV commercial.

What if someone is so excited about the products shown in the TV ad, he/she run to an electronic store even before the Apple TV ad is finished. But he/she buy two Samsung Galaxy to run Skype.

This is a great commercial. Evil really.. It's so real and kind of messed up lol. I mean this was their one and only commercial for this and it was very good. However that's not apples approach when showing products. Google has a lot more to prove and advertise in their commercials. Just like apple had to when it used to do its Mac to pc commercials. This iPad mini one is good because it's just another vision when using the product.

I thought it was their only one as well, but apparently they've been doing these for over a year.

It's a sure sign of lost humanity. You're supposed to miss loved ones when they're gone.

We can all thank Apple for never feeling bad. Or feeling anything.

That you could feel the Christmas spirit in the video. A lot better than watching a girl sing horribly for 30 seconds or so.

Yeah, they've never done this before. Like when they released the iPod mini.

Its the same deal. I had an iPod mini as a kid, so did many of my friends, and our parents had the regular ones. The idea was the same, they weren't going to spend a bunch of money on something for an age group that is more likely to lose or destroy it.

Apple is not replacing a product, they are filling a gap, specifically in price, for the people who want an iPad but wouldn't buy one otherwise.

Only apple can create a short ad, have everyone make a big deal over it, and an article gets published which then gets 200+ comments. It's just an advertisement!

I maybe in the minority, but this ad became annoying after the first couple times I saw it. I don't know why, but it just did.

Why is that girl singing to an old stranger on their iPads? Makes absolutely no sense.
