i've always thought that ads for iphone/ipad were made by the brand that is advertised at the end. so this would be a sprint ad rather than an apple one. that "you're more powerful than you think" line isn't an apple slogan, either.

not that it's a shitty ad - it's just not nearly as good (or subtle) as the style of advertising that apple's been utilizing lately

It's an Apple ad -- and the line is a new Apple slogan, the Apple version (linked here) ends with the Apple logo (certain TV spots end with carrier logos).

Just came back in here to correct myself after Tim Cook's tweet. I stand corrected!

What a horrible song, just overall. Forget the lyrics.
