    I think this debuted during the Super Bowl 5 or 6 years ago. One of my favorite commercials ever.

    I'm honestly a bit shocked, and not in a good way. It seems like such a corny ad.

    My favourite (I don't watch many) would have to be this (3rg Gen Nano)

    Simple, catchy, and fun.

    EDIT: I'm assuming you mean an ad for a product btw, if not then definitely "The Crazy Ones" is far and away number 1.

    I always had a fond affection for the "There's no Step 3" commercial. It really changed the way I personally thought about how something should work.

    I did also enjoy the Yao Ming 12"/17" Powerbook commercial.

    To be honest, I wish they'd go back to that style of commercial again. Cute, humorous, and "that makes you think" commercials have always been Apple's strong suit. The last commercial that pulled this off was the Air/Manilla envelope one. I wish they did something similar with the iPad 2 commercials. The current crop is honestly overly pretentious.

    So, I'll have to be the first to answer with a cliché and say Apple's "1984" ad? :)

    Give me deep philosophical meaning and I'm on board.

    I also like Apple's "colors" iMac commercial; it's been awhile since Apple's impressed me with a commercial.

    The 1984 commercial is tops.

    I also like the I'm a Mac / I'm a PC commercials.
    Especially the one where PC says: "Cut to a Commercial!" and Mac replies: "But we ARE a Commercial!" :)

    The Think Different ads are the best, but I also really like the new iCloud ad. The musics sound good and I think iCloud is a really cool product, especially when they show that you can use normal apps such as the drawing one, and pick it up instantly on any device. I'm an iOS developer, so I just eat this stuff up.

    I have to say the recent ipad commercials are very good. I like how they touch on the humanity and how people are using this technology. It beats all the tech specs blitz with pounding rave music other companies are making.

    This is the best all time commercial. I still remember seeing it for the first time - giving me goose bumps. :D

    My second favorite of that campaign was "Choose A Vista," where PC spins a big prize wheel to see which Vista flavor he gets to install. To PC's disappointment, the wheel stops on Lose A Turn. I love Mac's final retort:

    The iPod Touch 2 commercial. iLove this song. I play it often in the car.



    Today I got the white iPod T to replace the 2 from late 2008. Damn, it seems like so long ago. The App Store was still new. :apple:

    There are some of the I'm A Mac ads that are simply inspired, but for me it's gotta be Will Ferrell.



    Because they were my first exposure to Apple advertising. I was hooked. :D
