    My friend informs me that an ad is currently airing featuring the iPod nano and the silhouette dancers playing with it in traditional fashion. I have not seen this ad, I mentioned that NBC usually runs a lot of apple ads and he seemed to think that's where he saw it. Of course it's not on their site, so does anyone have any more information?

    The only nano commercial I've seen was the one played at the announcement with the nano being passed around and played with by different hands. It wasn't like the iTunes silhouette commercials though.

    It was just a hand juggling the Nano around, and in black at the end were the words "Impossibly Small". Nothing at all like the *cruddy* silhouette ads...

    Yeah, definitely a good thing. Getting a bit over the whole silhouette thing. :(

    Ok, never mind. It was the one played during the keynote.

    I just saw the iPod nano commercial during The O.C. on Fox. It was just two pairs of hands fooling around with it and then at the end said iPod nano. Impossibly small. I also saw a commercial right before it for the Moto phone of a girl dancing in the street to her iTunes music and then stopping and it pausing when she got a call. I am extremely happy to see Apple is taking the opportunity to advertise these. My whole school is talking about the nano, mainly due to my weak RDF action I have perfected. ;)

    Wow, talk about creepy timing. I work for a local NBC affiliate and I'm sitting here surfing MacRumors when I click on this thread. Literally the second I clicked on this thread NBC played the iPod nano commercial. ;)

    And, yeah, I like that it's not the overdone silhouette style. The silhouettes were really cool at first, but I think it's time for something new.

    I agree in general, but I'm still seriously crushing on Shuffle Girl. Or at least her silhouette....

    I saw the commercial last night on Comedy Central - wasn't there a big ad campaign that was nixed for the mac ??? Perhaps in favor of spending the money on the nano commercial - I guess that 's apples strategy. Pump up the ipod neglect the mac... (angst) :mad:

    I saw the commercial for the nano on the keynote stream.

    Cant say I was real impressed.... I love the nano, but I think they could have done a better job with the TV Ad.

    Likewise, I think I've introduced my entire sixth form to the iPod Nano, and loads have said that they're going to get one. :p

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of the commercial, but it's growing on me.
