    I was just watching the new iPhone ad, when I noticed, the taxi can driver looks a whole lot like Jony Ive. Then, I went online and got a closer look, and I swear it has to be him.

    I don't know, i can't say for sure because a google image search doesn't give a side portrait. Still, the chin on the driver looks more sharp then Ive's rounded one. So, i'm gonna be open here and say it's possible.

    I may not be very good at recognizing people, especially when it's blurred out that much, but the facial characteristics, including his chin, shape of eyes, and even the shape of his head makes it look like Ive to me. If you look carefully, the driver is even bald with the same kinda grey-ish facial hair.

    Or maybe I'm crazy..

    I'm sorry, but I must disagree. To me, Ive's head looks completely different than the driver's head.

    It would be a shame to have him in a commercial and not feature those cold, mysterious eyes.

    I would say no..... Think about it..... Taking your lead designer out of work so he can do an ad that anyone else off the street can do?

    I doubt its him, but the guy does resemble Ives.

    That doesn't look like him to me, and anyway, why would he do this? Especially if he can't really be recognized, why would they use him while he has more important stuff to do.

    Do you think he would stop all his work just so we can shoot his chin in a TV ad?

    Well he is a quirky famous director. Perhaps he wanted Ives for ascetics .

    Looking at the rumored iPhone 5 design I would say he is not all that busy so I'm sure he had plenty of time to do the commercial. I mean how long does it take to say make it taller?

    LOL.

    I don't think that is Ives, his nose doesn't look similar to the taxi drivers IMO.
