In less than 48 hours since Samsung released it’s new Galaxy S II phone ad that mocked Hipsters standing in line for the iPhone, Apple has released an ad for the iPod that is full of hipsters. The iPod Touch commericla first aired on television today during the Greenbay Packers Vs Lions Thanksgiving Football game.
The video – full of hipsters looking all “cool” and appearing to be having a lot of fun – promotes Apple’s idea of “Sharing the fun” and appears to have been timed to coincide with the Holiday Shopping spree that is about to decend on America!
Check it out.
Reactions To The Apple iPod Touch Hipster Ad
The ad was received very negatively – or atleast that’s what I observed in social media on twitter immediately after the ad aired. Almost all the negative reactions were fixated on the fact that Apple used a bunch of hipsters in the ad to promote the new iPod Touch.
Hipsters in the iPod touch commercial make me not want one. Get a new ad campaign apple, #ihatehipsters
