Open casting for "I'm an iPhone & Android" commercials

0. phoneArena 05 Oct 2011, 15:27 posted on

A reader had a great idea that Apple should bring back the "I'm a Mac" ads for the mobile age, and we want to know who you think should play the iPhone and who should play the Android in these made-up ads...

Ok I have one! How does Lucy Lui as the iPhone and Jackie Chan as Android. Sounds about right sexy Lucy that does almost anything and plucky fighter Jackie that does his own stunts.

Hi am an android I freeze a lot. My battery life sucks and since their are to many of me to even count it means that if you buy the wrong me you will get very little support and probably will never see an official update in your life. And I am an iphone I've always had the same 3.5 inch screen I don't change much I can be boring at times and behind the curb when it comes to specs oh yeahh and this year I was dissopointing by not changing by body style what so ever : ). Hi u guys ( i/A) who are you I am windows phone 7 (i/A): hahahaha what the hell do you do, android: you no what never mind get f...k out of here hahaha iphone: windows phone 7 haha

Hi, I'm an Android and I have .A wide screen .The latest and most powerful processor available for phones .Widgets .Cool Notifications and drag and drop file transfer and customization.

Hi, I'm an iPhone and what he said* except for the wide screen cause who needs a wide screen right? and also, who uses drag and drop? That's old news, iTunes is the future! I also have customization, I and able to rearrange my apps in any order you want! and did I mention? I have no viruses*.

*Apple is not responsible if any of the said functions are false...

If you're gonna do this, it has to be done right! Use people who would showcase what the platforms are know for. Apple is known for it's beauty and smoothness, while Android is known for it's power and utility. So the characters should personify these attributes. So I think these would be some pretty decent match ups...

Apple. Android

Wonder Woman - She Hulk
7 of 9 "Star Trek Voyager" - Data from "Star Trek: Next Gen"
James Bond (Sean Connery) - Antonio Banderas as El Mariachi
James Bond (Daniel Craig) - Machete
Batgirl - Batman
Cat Woman - Sabertooth
Lara Croft - Alice (From Resident Evil)
Chun-Li (Street Fighter) - Marshall Law (Tekken)
Superman - The Hulk

All epic match-ups when I play them in my head!

Michael, this was fun. I think you should do this again a week from now. The news about Steve was naturally going to eclipse anything else so please give it another shot later.

Oh, you know I thought about all the Terminators, Predaters, Aliens, ghost from the Ghostbusters, Go Bots, Transformers, even Greek and Norse Gods! But I didn't want my nerd flag to fly TOO high.

The almost perfect add already exists... The SonyEricsson Xperia Play add featuring Kristen Schaal in a "good Kristen Schaal" (apple) versus "Bad (Cool) Kristen Schaal" (android). Android's Kristen Schaal is the one with the Play... Therefore, android is way too cooler on its interface and usability than iOS is.

Aisha Tyler brews her own beer ... an involved, time-consuming activity in which the only real gain to the drinker (user) is the added satisfaction of having something uniquely their own. This couldn't be any farther away from iPhone.
Aisha Tyler is a much better fit for the Android, use Olivia Munn (10x nerdy cred points) instead.

iPhone: Agent Frank (Leslie Neilsen on Naked Gun movies)
Android: McGyver

Agent Frank: Every time he commits a mistake he pretends its nothing or make others believe it' s not his fault (there goes the iPhone antenna). Keeps his cool and make everybody belief that his on the right path.

McGyver: give him the tools and he will always be ahead of the others
