Christmas AdWatch: Apple
Just when we thought we'd finally seen the back of Christmas adverts for the year, along comes a late entry from Apple.
The advert - 'The Song' - sees a young lady - via a variety of Apple products, naturally - create a nice duet based on her Gran's recording of Love Is Here To Stay.
The sell Apple is giving it is: "With a Mac, iPhone or iPad you have the power to create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time. It could be a movie, a homemade card or a song that brings two generations closer together."
Have a gander at it now. Here.
It's genuinely quite lovely, and seeing gran tear up as she flicks through photos of yore will have you... no, it's okay... just something in our eye.
Perhaps it is good that it's come out a bit later than all the others, otherwise December's commercial breaks would soon become an intolerable minefield of feelings and heart-string-pulling emotions., and we can't be having that.
