    Anyone else sick of the ad? I'm in Canada and Global continues to play it in each commercial break. I've watched 3 hours of tv today and I've seen it 18 times. I don't think I can stand it anymore.

    Then don't watch so much TV?

    I don't know what else to tell you. I myself watched hours of TV today lounging around, and got a damn Kia commercial stuck in my head. I don't like Kia cars so it's useless for the jingle to stick. I eventually just changed the channel, even if only to get away from that one commercial.

    You are not alone! I hate this ad as well. I think I'm probably in the minority, but I've hated almost all of Apple's recent music ads (the Feith song especially!).

    Yeah, I wonder who feist is doing at apple to get her crappy music so much exposure. 2 songs on 2 different ads.
    Wouldn't bother me as much if it wasn't such utter crap...
    I feel dead inside.....:D

    I guess I've been called worse, but I'm not sure.

    I love it...still. Every time it comes on I watch it and smile. The funny thing is that it just came on a few minutes ago and I looked up, watched it smiling and humming along. My wife just looked at me and laughed.

    I have to say, I love the commercials. The iPod nano one drove me insane until I bought the song, the MBA one is a good song in my opinion, but I can see how it is possible for them to get annoying... it's happened to me before.

    The MBA ad isn't Feist...unless there's a new one I haven't seen yet. If it's the New Soul song you're talking about, it's Yael Naim.

    hah, I tottaly agree with the thread starter, i too have seen the ad way to many times here in canada. I have to say though, the more i see it, the more i think that air would be a great laptop to have. I would love to come in into the office everyday carrying my laptop in the same batch as my mail, that would look kinda cool, yet cheasy, but i would still do it a fwe times at least.

    oh I know that. I was replying to the guy who said Feist sucked.

    I am not particularly fond of the MBA song myself, it's good, but the whole thing gets a little annoying after a while. the excerpt they used for the actual ad though, is flawless.

    Yeah, the song is not that great as a whole but the part they used is so fitting. I can't imagine buying that song, it's really commercially.

    btw, feist rules!

    it only comes on when there is an event on that Apple is sponsoring. like the Formula 1 series. it comes on every ad break. although i love the publicity Apple is getting, the ad is bloody annoying!
