I disagree, I think rollerskating was better. Much more interesting and a better song.

I'm a Daft Punk fan, so what can I say, I'm biased and like this one more than the rollerskating one. ;)

And cool, I got credit for the story submission. :cool:

Why don't they advertise their computers as much?

I see no reason why the new iMacs shouldn't be as popular. iPods aren't exactly cheap and are a hit.

Everyone who has seen my iMac has been wowed by it, including me.

It baffles me, the new iMacs are way under rated.

On subject though, I am glad that Apple continues to invest in the success of the iPod.

/People who don't have at least an iMac are missing out though :(

Really, they should advertise the OS. No matter how wonderful the hardware, people who haven't used a Mac don't understand that the key difference is the ease of use and elegance of OS X. Apple should push the user experience, rather than the hardware.

Save your pennies, they are completely worth the investment. Especially the new ones. One more cycle and they will probably get up to 2.3Ghz, if not 2.5.

Really, the ad campaign ought to be more inclusive, or at least feature some other Apple hardware, Apple does have the coolest looking computers on the market. Even 'what you can do with an iPod and Tiger (airport wise)' ad would benefit the company as a whole.

Eh, it's OK I guess. At first I didn't really like the song, but I just have to get used to it. I probably like it just a tad bit more than the rollerskates one (but it's still pretty close), which, IMO, the roller skates sorta took away the focus from the iPod to the skates. But I do like Apple is trying new ways for these silhouette ads regarding the skating one.

Saturday Night Live just showed it during one commercial break. Then they returned to the show and Will Ferrell was wearing an iPod shuffle in a skit!

ATTENTION APPLE: EVERYONE AND THEIR MOM KNOWS ABOUT THE iPOD AND HOW GREAT IT IS! ADVERTISE YOUR GREAT COMPUTERS AGAIN!

I was recently watching some old apple ads and I came across the G5 ads involving the dude being blown through his entire house and it occured to me that I used to see these ads quite regulary on TV. Get back to the machines!

I disagree with the people that say "Apple needs new ads," because these people are all macheads that get angry when something at Apple is not upgraded within a year or two.

While Apple could use more ads featuring the iMac and mac mini, these iPod ads are doing very well right now. I mean, these silouetted dancers (whose moves only seem to be getting better in terms of syncing with the music) are far better than your mom and dad singing songs playing on their iPod against a white background (remember those?). These ads are uncomplicated, unique, and fresh - just like the iPod.

Shard, when did you submit this? I hate to be a crybaby but I saw this on SportsCenter last night (well, 2 nights ago technically) and submitted right away. Whatever, maybe because I didn't know the song!
I like this one wayyyy better. Relatively ironic choice of song, just listen to the lyrics!

1) They could have used some better Daft Punk, in my opinion.

2) The N.E.R.D. "Rock Star Jason Nevins Remix" was much better and totally underplayed.

3) They need new commercials, be it Mac or iPod, spice it up already! I liked the one with the posters on the wall from last spring. That was a nice change.

LimeiBook86 that was great! I wish Apple would do something like that, and make it time appropriate that way.

But regarding the topic; How pathetic is it that there are "suggestions" that Apple may be considering some Mac featured ads in the near future. I mean, what the hell?
