Apple’s Christmas Ads

Apple has released its 2016 holiday ad. It stars Frankenstein, who just wants to be accepted.

The ad, called “Frankie’s Holiday,” starts off with Frankenstein sitting alone while listening and recording a Christmas song in his home. He appears to be living in seclusion. With a Christmas tree behind him, he walks down to the local community, where people are aghast at his sight. Frankenstein pulls out Christmas lights, plugs them into his neck, and starts singing “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays.” When he runs into a potentially embarrassing mishap, a little girl comes to his rescue. The entire community then joins in the singing, making him feel like part of the group.

The ad ends with a message: “Open your heart to everyone.”

20 years apple.com

Apple.com turned twenty-years old just a few days ago. This video highlights every major event in Apple’s timeline as a time lapse of its homepages from when the website began in 1996 to the present day.

The design of Apple’s own website changes dramatically, accommodating Apple’s expanding product range and shifting fashions in user interface and aesthetics. As well as showcasing major products, it also celebrates other events in Apple’s history … like the passing of Steve Jobs or the “day you’ll never forget” (Beatles on iTunes). Watch the three-minute timelapse below.
