I haven't seen this mentioned previously, but there's a commercial for Mac Book that makes me cringe every time it comes on. I can't find it to post here, but it consists of horrible sounding piano music accompanied by some awful singing. I'm sure, since it's Apple, there's some underlying message I'm missing - I'm just focused on the awful music.

If you watch any of the World Cup programming, they play this commercial a lot!

I saw it last night and thought "STOP IT!" The Apple commercials just to be somewhat decent...not anymore.



**After looking at the credit, this is an ACTUAL song you can buy on Apple iTunes/Music???
2 questions - WHY?? and WTF??! 🤔

Da f**k is point point of this "song" to torture your ears until you're dead?

Everybody in commercials nowadays has to be portrayed as "artists".

Typical pretentious millennial trash.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

What gender was that croaking singer? The voice sounds like its retarded/extreme case of Down's Stndrome. Bernie, Oprah or Hilary shoul employ this turd du jour for their next campaign.Typical Apple crap!

If I worked in the CIA and had to interrogate terrorists, I'd have this Apple commercial "song" on a constant loop at the highest volume possible. 

I would also throw in this old gem from U. Of Phoenix. I bet I would the terrorist would spill his guts within 90 minute max.  Lot of other ads / songs I'm sure I can think of to use as "humane torture."
