Apple, TBWA\MAL Remind Us What the iPhone is Good For: Being an iPod

From Apple and TBWA/Media Arts Lab comes the spiritual sequel to last month’s “Photos Every Day” spot for the iPhone.

“Music Every Day” uses the exact same formula as its predecessor, with similarly excellent execution. We’ve come a long way from Apple’s original iPod commercials. No longer do we have silhouetted dancers projected against green screens with a loud, indie-rock soundtrack. Instead, just like “Photos Every Day,” we have a simple concept that, more than anything, humanizes iPhone users. What are these people listening to? It doesn’t matter; the important thing is that they’re enjoying it. We see them smile, nodding their heads along to a beat, something that we see occur is real life every single day.

Again, it ends with a single-sentence VO: More people listen to music on the iPhone than any other phone. The entire concept seems obvious, but sometimes it’s the obvious that needs to be said. Credits after the jump.

A-Trak Steps In to Provide Soundtrack for Latest Sid Lee/Adidas Work

Nothing like a little beat-dropping to wind down the day. So, let’s let Montreal native and renowned producer/mixmaster DJ A-Trak (just watch this from 16 years ago) do his thing for a minute in a new Sid Lee spot for adidas Originals, which is part of a larger global campaign for the brand called “Unite All Originals.”

While the days of Daft Punk, Snoop and David Beckham joining forces in the name of geekdom may have long since gone, the party continues in Sid Lee’s world with the aid of A-Trak, retro visuals by French artist SoMe (who also directs the clip) and a horde of hip youths. And, thanks to the clever editing and digital production work from partners such as B-Reel Stockholm, the interplay between music and visuals provides for a fairly hypnotic experience. Hey, we’ll take this over the usual late afternoon stupor any day. Credits after the jump.
