The first ever iPod commercial by Apple

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

This is the first ever commercial for the iPod released in 2001.
Not really a lot to say about this one, i personally don’t find it really “creative” when compared with other Apple campaigns, but i think it deserves a place because it was “the first”.
The song used for this one is “Take California” by The Propellerheads.
Enjoy one of the very few high quality versions available on the web.

Please note that you will need a 512kbps internet connection (or faster) in order to watch this video without interruptions.

Apple’s Think Different TV commercial, in good quality…

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

As many of my friends already know, im working on an online archive of Apple related commercials and institutional videos, so well, some days ago i received a series of uMatic tapes, and i found this inside one of them.

This is, in my humble opinion, one of the better (if not the better one) examples of clean institutional advertising & branding, and one of those commercials that “touch your heart”.
Quick Tip: In recent pre-releases of Mac OS X Leopard, you will find the whole narration for this commercial in the high resolution icon of the “Text Edit” application.

I hope you enjoy this, because you wont find a better quality version in the whole web ;)

Quote from Wikipedia: “Think Different was an advertising slogan created for Apple Computer in the late 1990s by the Los Angeles office of advertising agency TBWA\Chiat\Day. It was used in a famous television commercial, several print advertisements, and several television advertisements for Apple products. Apple’s use of the slogan was discontinued with the start of the Apple Switch ad campaign in 2002. The slogan may have been a play on the venerable IBM Think motto coined by Thomas J. Watson.”
