Review: iPad Air

A Pencil Stars in Apple’s Ad for iPad Air

For about 54 seconds of this 60-second ad, we see beautiful photography and hear a stately voiceover paying homage to what I believe to be that classic tool of artists, writers and composers the yellow pencil. The V.O. goes on about how this simple object can be a powerful tool that tranforms how we work and share, as the camera zooms in on the writing instrument sitting horizontally against various backdrops. That is, until a hand comes out of nowhere to reveal something sitting behind it Apple’s new iPad Air.

The new commercial for Apple’s latest evolution of its iPad tablet takes a cue from the brand’s commercial for its laptop predecessor, which also used another basic office supply a manila envelope, to show off its slender figure.
