    Appleinsider has posted a quicktime version of the Pepsi iTunes Superbowl ad.

    The ad was described earlier today by Apple:

    What? Is that common practice to reveal a superbowl ad before the superbowl? Strange.

    Not bad for a normal ad

    but a bit disappointing for a $1.4 million, Super Bowl spot. But that's me...

    Can't view it here either...

    Strangely, when I click the link it opens up RealOne Player, which then can't play it. Works in QT player though, or would if they had enough bandwidth...

    Glad I'm not the only one who had RealPlayer open up instead of QuickTime.

    yeah, i thought my computer was screwed up, but they must have done something wrong. and i'm getting the same bandwidth error in QT too. why did they have to make it streaming? seems like a normal movie would require less bandwidth, as people wouldn't be reloading it, they just have to download once...

    Limited number of connections

    You just have to keep trying, through QT - there are only so many streams allowed at one time...

    And yes - it sux - bad - not Apple worthy at all - Apple obviously had nothing to do with the design/production of the commercial. It is what I expected, a Pepsi ad.

    It is not an iTunes ad.

    Superbowl newbie

    So when is this superbowl anyway?

    Clearly, Apple is waiting for this event before they release any new products. Probably they want to get a good spin on the interest for Apple and then just blow everyone away with some stunning new iMacs or something. :D

    How do you suppose the ad was leaked?? You'd think they would keep something like that under lock and key, especially when Apple is involved. Anyways -- kind of a disappointing ad, but I like the concept. Maybe they have another one in addition to this.

    Music Store

    So can anyone actually find Green Day's "I Fought the Law" on the iTunes Music Store? I can't. That would be very odd...

    Ugh. People watching this on Sunday is going to have NO IDEA what it is unless they have heard about it. The song is a great idea, but the girl's speaking part is pretty lame.
