Tim Ryan's Reel Hawaii blog reports that AT&T will be filming two commercials next week on Oahu.
The ad agency is New York-based BBDO which has did some Apple IPOD commercials. Speculation is that the Hawaii commercials are about Apple’s new IPhone 2 which will be released early next month. About 30 of the 40 production crew are locals…
Apple recently shot a commercial at the 5th Avenue Apple Store, as well as in L.A. the previous week. Both filmings were thought to be related to the 3G capable iPhone expected to be released next week.

DavidJr.com posted a video which shows one of the actors at the 5th Avenue shoot:

I think the short clip of the Good Humor guy gave more info than the blurry picture of a supposed actor being fitted with an earpiece.

Cool idea that would be...

but why would they actually film it in the two different places?

Wouldn't they just use CGI to fake it? It'd be cheaper than paying for all the gas... and having two production crews and all that I would think. (I don't really know that seeing as I've never made a commercial but...)

If they really wanted to show a conference live, wouldn't they have to be filming both of them simultaneously?

It's a quote isn't it, you don't fix quotes.

That site that hosted the video was gastly, but it did appear he had a hands free in his ear or something along those lines.

Whatever it is I hope we see the finished version of it at some point and they don't just decide it's not worth it at the end of the day.

Yep. That's my bet too. What would be the point of different locations if it's not video conferencing. (Especially Hawaii.):D

BBDO? umm...no. Chiat Day LA does ALL the Apple ad work. ESPECIALLY new products.

If BBDO is doing the work, then the commercials are for AT&T, not Apple directly.

I downloaded DavidJr's HD QT movie and checked it out closely and I came to the conclusion that the Man standing inside the box was doing just that. He was a stand-in. Stand-ins are used to let the lights,camera and sound people adjust their respective equipment. And they almost always look very similar to the actor. So in this case the guys tall and moderately built wearing dark spy-type glasses.

I'm starting to get the gist of this commercial. To really show off GPS it's going to go all around the world from above zooming in on each location. From iPhone to iPhone.
