TBWA/MAL ‘Dreams’ for Apple’s iPhone 5S

TBWA/Media Arts Lab has a new spot for Apple’s iPhone 5S entitled “Dreams.”

Set to the made-for-a-television-commercial strum of Jennifer O’Connor’s “When I Grow Up,” the spot celebrates everyday heroes like firemen, doctors, veterinarians, environmental scientists and artists. The choice of music, pacing and editing make the spot feel like a spiritual successor of sorts to the recent “Parenthood” successful spot. Like that ad, “Dreams” shows its subjects using the iPhone 5S in a variety of ways as a tool to do their job better. It’s nothing ground breaking, but it communicates its message well while showing a variety of the smart phone’s capabilities. Coming off the recent spot “Stickers” and the aforementioned “Parenthood,” “Dreams” sees TBWA/Media Arts Lab on something of a creative roll following the announcement in June that Apple would take more ads in-house.
