Is that a iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Call me, baby?

teehee teehee. Songs about penises are funny. I'm 12.

It's not like Apple's recent ad campaign history is rife with sexual undertones.

For some reason, I was reminded of this old DILBERT strip:

/The singer is cute, in a blonde hipstery sort of way

No user serviceable parts inside those pants, and anything you want to plug the piece into has got to be apple approved. Ill stick to my dirty little droid.

It's not as large as some of the others, but it provides a more pleasurable experience.

It seems like you're really putting too much thought into a song whose only lyric is, "gigantic."
Also, the song was terrible.

Also also, the commercial was terrible.
I hate commercials that tell you NOTHING about the product.

Jesus, you really need shiat spoon fed to you, son't you? We know what the product is. It's a phone with extended capabilities./ It's also a phone that can be a guitar tuner, an effects board, a quasi-theremin, a controller for things like rocjket launches, a planetarium starshow, used for playing video games. What the fark were they supposed to do? As far as Apple commercials go, this said WAY MORE about the product than what they usually put out.

The point is that there are all kinds of non-phone things the phone will do.

It's a cover of a pretty well known song by the Pixies. The version with lyrics is pretty unambiguous (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx_SKiSmvd). My GF wonders why I always snicker at that ad.(sorry no link on mobile, song is SFW)

There's only one go-to company when it comes to overcompensating gadgets: Samsung. This is their new top-of-the-line (8" screen) smart phone:

"Gigantic"

And this I know
His teeth as white as snow
What a gas it was to see him
Walk her every day
Into a shady place
With her lips she said
She said

Hey Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let's have a ball [3x]

Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love

Lovely legs they are
What a big black mess
What a hunk of love
Walk her every day into a shady place
He's like the dark, but I'd want him

Hey Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let's have a ball [3x]

Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love

Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love


I don't mean to be argumentative, but I see words other than "gigantic" there.

Jesus, a lot of morons out there, aren't there?

TFA of TFA nees to farking relax and just accept that he likes to be beatem by masked women while singing "I'm a little teapot">

Wikipedia told me: "The song's voyeuristic lyrics mostly revolve around a woman's observation of an attractive black man making love to another woman, culminating in the oddly lighthearted but sexual chorus: 'Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic / A big, big love.'"
I struggle with the phrase "oddly lighthearted but sexual." I see no struggle between lightheartedness and sexuality.

The song was written after Kim Deal watched a movie called "Crimes of the Heart". This is a 1986 movie with Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek. The reference to sex with a black man is one of these three sisters telling an anecdote about how she had an affair with a black man when she was younger. That's it. That's all that's there.

Now, of course, "Gigantic" couldn't possibly refer to a love that would have been still controversial when women who were born in the 40's would have still been young and wild.The song is about a 'secret love', but there is nothing in the lyrics that states that it''s anything more then metaphorical.

People are stupid. "Controversies" like this are stupid.

I guess it's too much to ask for a commercial advertising a product to actually advertise it.
You're right, I should just be happy with how pretty it is and, oh look! Cool people are using it. I should totally buy one.

Nevermind about battery life, processor, capabilities, etc etc.  I can tune a guitar with it. Or get some crazy specialized set up to control theater lights or something.

Jesus, if you don't know this by now, you probably shouldn't be looking into buying a cell phone. The iPhone doesn't change much, and whatever changes gets covered ion every farking tech blog in existence, and some in the future who transmit data via tachyons so that it shows up here in the past. FFS, if all they were doing was babbling about battery life, you'd be whining and crying because they didn't show you anything the phone can do. In other words, you're not happy unless you are crying.

I hate Apple and haven't been afraid to state that on here, but this complaint about the phone is one of the mos idiotic anti-Apple rants I've ever heard.

You're missing the point, either intentionally or through stupidity.

Welcome to Earth. Next you're going to be farking out because a song said the sky wasn't blue, or that a character in a movie that you didn't want to die, died. Instead, why don't you pay attention to the world around you and try to understand at least some of it.

It's pretty much standard for advertising campaigns to have songs that have nothing do with the product.

Liberty Mutual, an insurance company is using a song about infidelity.
Tide uses (used?) a song about the end of the world.
Etc.

Whenever I hear a commercial use that "I want to see you be brave" song, I'm baffled as to what the person in the commercial is doing that warrants the "brave" tag.

You're in a barber shop looking at football plays on a tablet.  Okay, that's cool.  But brave?  Huh? Maybe if Sweeney Todd is your barber.

Have you seen the commercial for the new Samsung G5? It's all people doing stuff you could do with any phone, like taking pictures of each other. Real informative.

The iPhone ad shows people doing stuff with an iPhone that you CAN'T do with just any phone.

You're missing the point, either intentionally or through stupidity or blind hatred.

Where's the proof you can?
There are plenty of videos using iOS devices as instruments or mixing music, where are the android ones?
