Apple begins airing new 3D-silhouette Eminem TV ad

3D-silhouette Eminem TV ad

Apple's new iTunes ad featuring rap superstar Eminem began airing this past weekend on major network television. The TV spot, which debuted at the special event last week, was shown during several sporting events on Sunday, including CBS football and the world series. The 30-second spot takes a new 3D approach to the "silhouette" ads popularized in Apple's recent iPod television campaigns, combining an iconic effect with music video-style filmography. Apple chief executive Steve Jobs told the crowd that Apple had been working on the concept for more than two years during its debut. The ad claiming it used one of Eminem's songs in a television advertisement without permission.

    working on the concept?

    I got the feeling that when Steve Jobs mentioned 2 years, he was refering to the chance to work with Eminem--not the concept. He said they have been working on it for two years and now "they are finally able to do it." Technically, apple could have done it two years ago. But, finally they got Eminem on board. That's how I took it.

    not the World Series

    The ad aired during the ALCS game yesterday, and I think during the NLCS too. The World Series hasn't started yet -- this is the final playoff round before the World Series.
