Some Apple ads you write about because they’re new Apple ads. Some Apple ads you write about because they’re awesome.

It is a little bit unsettling, if you’re a dude of a certain age and a certain demographic, to know that Apple has pretty much made an ad aimed directly at you. But you’ll get over it.

You may also spend a minute remembering the early ’90s, when it seemed unimaginable for a 4AD band to license their music to one of the biggest companies in the world, to sell a very expensive piece of consumer electronics. But whatever! That was then.

The rest of you may enjoy a trip to Wikipedia, where you can learn all about the Pixies’ Gigantic.

Oh, also! There’s this.

The ad is showing iPhone camera light used as a pulse sensor?

Nowhere near as bad as GM using Rock and Roll by Led Zeppelin in their ads.

Apple should own the accusation that it's nothing but clever advertising.



'Cause it's half true. I say goddamn! The Pixies...<swoon>.
