      I don't get it, doesn't this just mean that it's a one tool for everything, not that it replaces artists.
      All those "artists" probably already use mac to record, edit, draw etc. alll their shit anyway.

        Yes, but presentation matters. Putting everything in a steel gray room while they're being unceremoniously compacted as their destruction is highlighted makes it seem that the ad's creators don't really respect or care about the creative aspects of the mediums they collected into the ipad. For a more positive ad they could have gone with brighter imagery and/or a motif where the old medium passes the baton to the new ipad which would show both respect and the progression of human technology.

        I think the thing that bothers people is less the concept and more that the execution was gratuitous and kinda sadistic.

        Like, it was 40 seconds of destroying stuff and then 2 seconds of "oh, right, here's the product we're selling".

        And the Japanese.

        At least there wasn't a Black person on screen.

          It makes the ad memorable and makes you pay attention without any actual violence. It has no forced political message so it will appeal to people all over the political spectrum. It appeals equally to both genders. It's great.

      This ad is VERY effective in the sense that it gets people talking but for Crapple standards its unusually aggressive. Check out how all those items that could show reaction or even "emotion" seemed to be in fear of death and the goo squeezing out the sides.

      It's a mix between "you can have all this shit in this compressed convenient device and look how flat it is!" and some intentionally nightmareish shit to "shock" people in the maximum way that is possible for Crapple without causing too much of a stir.

        This is what I noticed, too. Not only are you focusing on the destruction of made objects (itself kind of unnerving by nature) but you are EXPLICITLY Brave Little Toaster'ing it by having the object explicitly telling you that this is upsetting.

        which is why people are so angry at the commercial.
        it accidentally gives off the image of implying that all art and/or culture is cheap and disposable and most people aren't deranged and nihilistic to believe that.

      I draw a lot (with a wacom), so I'm a bit of an artist myself. I don't know what exactly to be angry about this ad. Those props might've been just cg after all, and it conveyed the selling message well: creation tools packed within a thin device. Was it too insensitive to hydraulic press these tools? Makes me remember OnePlus' smash your iPhone marketing gimmick, felt like no one was offended.

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      This is just assuming the worst possible and most unlikely interpretation of the commercial, and the media salivating to report a controversy

      Whoever wrote the commercial was probably like "hey what if a hydraulic press pressed all this creative shit into a compact form factor you can put in a bag". And that was the end of it. It's not a message. It's not like the gillette commercial or some shit

      This shit annoys me because it can only lead to two bad things. Either ads become more boring to avoid backlash because you can see the ink blot that offends you in anything, or they make commercials offensive on purpose because the social media buzz was worth it

        At the same time, it's an advertisement, so I have no reason to be charitable towards it. Looking at an advertisement is a punishment. If something about it is even mildly annoying, I'm not going to look at it like, "well, at least they tried."

      One one hand the idea of compressing a bunch of functionalities(taking photos, playing games, viewing slop, making art) isn't anything new. Hell you've probably seen something similar(I vaguely remember the idea of two hands clapping once to reveal a simpler more compact version of something). The difference is this feels, like some other anons have pointed out, very aggressive, like it's full of revenge.
      And all of this being made just to promote a planned for obsolescence product that will be replaced in a year or two. It's a waste and for what?

          It also looked like CGI to me. I am a professional piano player, and I assure there there are many many pianos where destruction is the best thing to happen to them. Another reason it was probably CGI is that it didnt explode. Pianos are under enormous amounts of string tension, many tons. If that tension lets go, they simply explode they dont crumble like shown in the ad

            correct...but that is not something done arbitrarily. Its not like letting the tension off a guitar. An upright piano like the one in the video has probably 18,000lbs or so of string tensions. Grand pianos can get up around 40,000lbs of string tension. Hence, why they can explode if there is an issue.

          It depends on what value system you have.

          Taking pleasure in destroying something is literally one of the worst sins in Shinto. No wonder the Japanese are so pissed.

          is correct on it being a cardinal sin in Shinto, but many religions place serious taboos on waste. The piano could also represent effort and care from previous people, and many religions and secular value systems consider it morally bad to squander or disrespect the effort of others.

            see

            It also looked like CGI to me. I am a professional piano player, and I assure there there are many many pianos where destruction is the best thing to happen to them. Another reason it was probably CGI is that it didnt explode. Pianos are under enormous amounts of string tension, many tons. If that tension lets go, they simply explode they dont crumble like shown in the ad

            There are all kinds of pianos that are well past their useful life. I get asked about old pianos all the time, and people are surprised when I dont want them or wouldn't recommend them. To make a good analogy, its the same with cars. Very nice well preserved old cars are fine, but average poorly preserved old shitboxes arent worth keeping and should be harvested for parts and/or crushed. There is nothing wrong with destroying an old piano that is no longer usable. A lot of people lack the knowledge to understand the issues with an old piano and think they last forever, the dont. Especially with little to no maintenance over its life, which is common for most of them. That being said, the one in the ad is CGI

    I have been thinking it, and now I am absolutely sure: everyone is actually Chinese.
    Now, what the frick do I mean?
    You see, most people in the world would find it pants-on-head moronic to take an innocent clip or T-shirt as some statement on the sovereign territory of a country and berate the company and anyone associated with them endlessly until they apologize.
    And yet, because the persistence of that moronation, everyone in business just quietly accepts that you don't bring up Taiwan, you call the island Chinese Taipei, you only display China as a country with the island, etc, even if it is completely out of touch with the reality that Chinese people are foreigners on that soil.

      Now, Apple loves their thin devices. Some engineer or marketing person probably thought the easiest way to convey the new iPad as a universal wonder portal to fun, creation, etc, etc, in a cute package would be to show everything getting compressed into that magical glass sheet.
      Not the best ad in the world, maybe conceptually broken, who the frick cares about the tech thin fetish past a certain point besides executives, but obviously they only had good intent-
      >AAAAAAA DEMONIC DEMONIC
      >I cannot believe this horrific statement on AI. We are clearly in a war with the futapic pixel estimation functions and autocomplete services.
      >does apple, a company
      > - that produces the most popular mobile tablet product for visual artists in the world,
      > - that sells a music subscription with the fairest cut towards musicians,
      > - that has been trying to market the iPhone to photographers and filmmakers for something like a decade, and needed the latter to make this very ad
      >hate artists?
      The Chinese flavor of madness is pretending like or genuinely believing the average non-citizen gives two shits about what their government is doing and what it controls, so they can molest outside business, even if their own people are caught in the crossfire.
      The Western flavor of madness is pretending like or genuinely believing literally anything and everything is out to get them and/or their monkey tribes, so they can have things taken down, shut down, or get formal apologies, even when they contradict their own principles of freedom, prosperity, equality, etc etc, or eradicates somethign that would end up benefiting them.
      I will comply with the madness, and remember for all time that humans together are genuinely insane.

        The music at least fits the vibe they're going for, and they didn't do stuff to make it seem like the objects they're crushing are sentient beings who want to live. It still lingers enough on the destruction to make it slightly uncomfortable to watch, but it doesn't come off as "creepy" on top of that.

    On the contrary, they are going to make a lot of money from this ad. Because it tells people that they don't need to own a bunch of expensive hobby items to be "cool" and cultured. All they need is to buy the cool device.
    People's hind brain will believe anything if you push the right buttons and repeat it enough times. For 80 IQ men it's sex. For high status men and women who can actually afford a $2000 phone, it's being seen as cultured and sophisticated. It's brilliant.

    I'd get a new iPad Pro if 1) can you dual boot Windows 10 or at least a lightweight Linux environment 2) what are the best ways to side load unsigned apps or .apk files 3) any reasons to not buy one as a counterargument to weight the pros and cons. I just have a bunch of dinosaurs laying around the house, in need of something that can be used for advanced graphic design coding and 3D modeling. Maybe run some emulators to boot up Smash Bros 64 with the proper adapters cause how sick would it be to whip that out at the library and challenge someone to a duel. And then expanding iPad Pro capacity as a mobile hacking unit, advanced packet sniffing perhaps a Kali Linux side install. All for the sake of education of course
