Quick. How many Apple TV ads have ever been made? If you said 485, that’d be correct. Well, according to someone with way too much time on their hands anyway. Found under the Youtube channel EveryAppleAds (via The Next Web), you can now watch all the classics in one place. From the very first Apple TV ad (1977) to the recent iPad mini adverts, it’s (supposedly) all there. Yes, you can re-watch all the Mac vs. PC ads starring Justin Long and the ‘other guy’ (John Hodgman). Below are but a few of the ones I’ve enjoyed from a number of years ago. For the full playlist, head over to the Youtube page.
As expected with every major product release, Apple has posted 4 new ads highlighting some of the best new features of the iPhone 5. “Physics” (as seen above) shows off the phone’s bigger screen and slimmer build by posing the question “how can something get bigger, and smaller?”; “Cheese” demos the cool new panoramic feature of its 8MP camera; ”Thumb“ emphasizes how the 4-inch display still works great with one hand; and ”Ears” focuses on the redesigned EarPods, which are now “ear-shaped” and can actually fit in your ears. If the narrator sounds familiar, that’s because it’s Jeff Daniels, otherwise known as Harry Dunne in Dumb & Dumber. Hit the gap to check out the rest of the 30 second ads.
If you missed Apple’s new Genius oriented ads shown during the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London, here they are. The 30 second ads feature the same Apple genius character, who in various humorous situations, goes to the extra mile helping Mac customers in distress. The first (above) is dubbed “Mayday” and is my favorite of the bunch:
An Apple Genius shows a fellow passenger how easy it is to make great home movies with iMovie. All before the tray tables are returned to their upright position.
Check out the rest after the break.
