    "Waltz" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq2HalPB28s&feature=autoplay&list=PL0749B42423816052&playnext=1

    "If You Don't Have an iPhone" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXkX6VWVjH0&list=PL0749B42423816052&index=5

    My favorite has to be the iPhone 3G "There's an app for that" commercials. I'm hoping that with the iPhone 5, 4S, or both, Apple comes up with some very creative commercials.

    I really like the iPhone 2G one just because it brings chills watching it & thinking about how far the iPhone has come. Truly amazing.

    iPhone 2G for mme. It's a classic and how bad azz the phone was when it first came out. On the other hand I did not like the first 3GS ad with it's the same yes obviously it's the same lol.

    I like the first iPhone 3Gs commercial. I thought it was fun and different than the others.

    It did, with iOS 2.0

    as to the original question, my favorite campaign has been for the first iPhone and then the ad that Demosthenes X posted.

    I like the 2G one the best. I remember putting them on my PSP and watching them over and over back in 2007. I also like the 6 min "This Changes Everything" ad for iPhone 4 just because we see scenes from inside the factory.

    There's an app for that was so effective it is still used though not by Apple directly. One of those phrases like "Can you hear me now?" That sunk into the public conscious.

    I'd say the "there's an app for that" one, but to be honest I haven't really been impressed with any of the iPhone ads, they're a lot cheesier than the ads Apple is known for.

    I don't know why Apple can't do the same for the iPhone ads as they do with the iPad 2 ads, "If you don't have an iPhone" is one of the worst they have ever done, for any of their products.

    Agreed. The funny thing is that it's their best selling product, despite the terrible ads.

    Which one is cockier? The Droid "does" commercial or that one?

    I agree that the "If it's not an iPhone" ad made Apple sound like pricks which is similar to that "Cell Phone Reunion" vid on YouTube that made iPhone sound like a jerk. But in Apple's defense, that was more indirect toward Android than Mac vs PC ads with Justin Long even it was pretty funny and true. Microsoft was more grounded with their "I'm a PC" response like they didn't care if you judged them. The better commercials come from iPods and iPads. The music from iPod ads from 6-7 years ago were always great. The U2 one with "Vertigo" is what made me like iPod and U2 in the first place. and I like the dramatic tone from the iPad ad sometimes. The best commercial for iPhone 4 was the one when the dad dressed up like Santa Claus and used FaceTime to greet his son. Very sweet.

    Droid Does was a great campaign in my eyes. A clear and simple message. Knowing little about Android it made me curious to learn more. Also gave Apple the competitive kick to do all those things as well. :cool:

    I'd say the "If you don't have an iPhone, well you don't have an iPhone" is the cockiest of them all.
