Apple Says “Don’t Mess With Mother” In This Stunning iPhone XS Ad

In Apple’s new Earth Day commercial, we see stunning visuals of our planet shot on iPhone XS. Just beautiful. Earth is amazing. And the heavy metal soundtrack really adds to the scene. The song is Megadeth’s “Last Rites/Loved to Deth.” I could watch this one over and over. And I probably will.

Apple Says Not To Bokeh A Child

Bokeh sounds like a made-up term, but it’s a real thing. This is just the first time I’ve heard it. Anyway, in this new Apple iPhone spot, a mom shows another mom a picture of their young sons. The boys are best buds. But uhh…what’s the blur in the back? The one mom seems outraged that her son Jacob is bokeh’d out. With the iPhone XR and XS Depth Control feature, you can “un-bokeh”, but it seems like the damage is done. This is a rare Apple ad with dialogue and no music. It’s also one that’s burning up YouTube, with 19 million views only a few days after being released. Anyone know who play the moms?

AT&T: This Woman Sends Emails To Santa

In an ad from this fall that’s since been removed, a man and woman chatted in the AT&T Innovations lab. It came up that the woman made out with Santa at the office holiday party, but that Santa ghosted him. Well, she apparently still emails Santa. But she’s not comfortable sharing his email address. The woman is played by Mary Holland…anyone know who plays the man?

The Song From Apple’s iPhone XS Commercial

Apple tends to use striking music in its commercials, and this song in its ad for their new ridiculously big and expensive iPhone (ironically called the XS) is no exception. So what is that song? It’s “Nothing Burns Like the Cold” by Snoh Aalegra featuring Vince Staples.

9/28 update: Were you looking for the song from this iPhone XS ad where everything grows incredibly big? That song is “Catch My Breath” by Confidence Man.
