Apple’s new “Buy a Mac” ad campaign isn’t all the company is advertising. They’ve also posted
a new iPod ad
this week featuring the psychedelic rock-inspired stylings of Wolfmother.
The 30 second spot doesn’t veer from Apple’s established pattern for iPod ads: Silhouetted dancers are seen wildly gyrating and gesticulating while holding white Apple iPods with Apple’s trademark white earbuds. A pulsing background of shimmering colors evokes the psychedelic oil-based lightshows of 60’s-era performances, as does the occasional outline of dancers wearing bell-bottomed trousers, big belts, long hair and beads.
