    Link: Apple debuts iTunes+iPod commercial with Bob Dylan
    Description:: Apple has debuted a new silhouette-style television commercial for iTunes and the iPod featuring a partially silhouetted BoB Dylan wearing an iPod while performing a song from his new album, Modern Times. This ad differs from any of Apple's previous silhouette ads in that the ad features mostly black and white coloring as opposed to the traditional pink, yellow, blue, and green. Previously, U2 starred in a silhouette iPod+iTunes television ad of their own...

    When has Bob Dylan ever been consistent in what he says, means, or does? :p

    That's right. Remember Eminem's Apple lawsuit? It was over the kid singing an Eminem song while listening to an iPod.

    Here's a quote from Eminem's lawyer: He had never endorsed a product. They felt that using 'Lose Yourself' was in effect an endorsement of the product and it would be much more valuable than what they were talking about paying. (reference here)

    Not long after that, Eminem himself was in one of the silhouette ads.

    that was part of the settlement...probably got his money the exposure he was after when they first approached him.

    Just watched it, love it. (Bob Dylan + Apple=!!!)

    Although... does this mean no update for awhile? The girl dancing appears to have a 5G...

    I saw the ad on Monday Night Football last night. Good ad, but nothing "1984"ish.

    Nice ad! I liked some of those close up shots of the fretboard as he was playing. Never thought I would be jazzed about a new iPod + iTunes ad :p

    Steve must have just loved that Dylan agreed to do this.

    I would have loved to see the two interact.

    I got the impression from his comments last week that he hated the modern engineering techniques being used on music, perhaps making things too perfect. Not so the much the digital delivery of the music on CD or iTMS.

    could be wrong.

    And as far as money talks, well yes it does,, but really he is promoting himself and his new album, not so much the iTMS, at least that is the main reason he is there, i would think.

    ZOMG no I can't see the trackwheel. Must be a new one! When's it coming out?

    I mean I'm so excited, usually Apple don't put their new secrecy-shrouded models in ads by accident before they are released, but 1337 I'm so excited.
