iPad "Crush!" Ad

Thoughts on this? New Apple ad receiving a lot of bad press (no pun intended).

    Personally, I don't like it. I understand the idea,
    >"It's just like the iPhone: a phone, an iPod, an internet communicator - all in one! So all this shit, is in the iPad!"
    But it's also presented in a very gloomy way. It's extremely accurate. All of that stuff really is going the way of dinosaur with new technology, and I think that's why people (myself included) don't like it. Innately human activities with manual operations are being replaced by a cold tablet you ungracefully push your finger on.

      This, and this morning the press is reporting that the satanic gays have apologized for destroying musical instruments in this poor excuse of an advertisement.
      This is what happens when you let kids instead of adults steer your company.

    >new iPad Pro already discounted everywhere
    What is going on with Apple? They've been on the decline for years now. This shit should have been sold out and being scalped, yet its being heavily discounted down by upwards of 20%.

      >really bizarre and tone deaf ad
      That’s what it looks like when people with no soul (literally) try to be creative. No connection to any sort of transcendent sphere of existence beyond this material place will do that. They might as well be AI instead of people.

    unnecessarily gory, violent, sloppy, unrefined, and out of character for Apple.

      This was my first thought too. Even if you give them the concept, the execution was sadistic. It's like the difference between Willy Wonka and Saw.

    The ad would literally be 10x times more palatable if instead of the crush being a slow and gruesome process, it was cartoon-ey, quick and showed the instruments being compressed in a Looney Tunes manner. That makes sense because it shows the artistic expression being "compressed" into an iPad. Some people may still dislike it but it won't be as distasteful.
