Short-time lurker, first-time poster. Registered just to bitch about this ad.

So what have they been smoking in Cupertino, lately? Election results got em' down? Who comes up with this garbage? My family and I are enjoying turkey dinner, beers, and football, and Apple shoves THIS down our throats on our holiday? All of us were looking at one another on silence like... WTF? Why do they think the average, normal American will view this ad, and say: "Yeah... This speaks to me. I get it. Beautiful. I totally identify with this. Life's mysteries are now all clear to me now. I need an iPhone". Please.

And to top the marijuana-laced cake, it's over two minutes runtime! Keep on truckin', Apple.

I was going to post about this one earlier, but couldn't find it.  What a dumb commercial.

This is the time of year where we go from 5% of the commercials being holiday related to 80%, overnight.  They seem particularly awful this year.  Either that, or my tolerance for them is less this year.

SMH! I couldn't get the video to load...this is the link.

Long brutally painful ad. I think I've said it before, I've been a long time Apple user, but their vision and "ingenuity" has completely gone to the crapper! If this ad is supposed to tug at my heartstrings, nope, not even close...it's a fail! 

If anyone wants a good laugh - or a WTF reaction, Apple released a picture book (450 photos) of their designs over the last 20 years.

Retail price...$199.99 for a the small book, $299.99 for the larger book. LOL
Are you freggin kidding me?

Apple has gone from making commercials that were cooler and more interesting than everyone else to making commercials that everyone else would think are totally outdated.

Horrible, horrible commercial.
