You'd never guess this amazing commercial is for Android

I... believe you made a mistake when you were embedding the video. Because all I see is endless link text.

I love this. I seen it while watching the Grammy's...as you stated. I honestly didn't know it was a android commercial until the end. It fixates your whole perspective on Android.

One of the most effective metaphors I've ever seen for Android.

My wife and I were watching the Grammys and this commercial comes on...
Halfway thru I'm telling her how awesome and cool the commercial is. As the end appears with the "be together not the same" I scream "I f@#cking knew it!"
The nerd in me got all giddy. And I told her she wouldn't understand. (She's an iOS user)

Even with it being a dig at Apple...its still classy.

even the monotune piano played by Ji sounds much better than the way I play normal piano.

Brilliant ad, could also be seen as Android's fragmented nature though... lol I genuinely think the ad is brilliant though.

Some of the best ad's ever bear no relevance to the actual product. This is not me praising Android, it is me defending the ad, which is pretty damn good.

how is it non-relevant? did someone need to explain it? o.O
"be together not the same"
they just mocking apple (with some style).. apple phone is just boring, user dont have much choice which one to but, and they cant even properly personalize their own device..
meanwhile android have so much diversity (or one may say, fragmentation)

2000+ Android OEM's that all go up against a single OEM? Fragmentation > diversity, any which way you look at it.. You guys certainly do have choices though ;)

If all the keys sounded the same, there's no point hitting so many keys lol
Just hit on a few with whatever variation and pressure you wanna give.

but his point is to make obvious comparison between to those 2 piano..
so he play the exact same verse on both piano

So "not the same" it's apps work like s**t...

The piano player doesn't change the way he plays on either piano.
He shows the same skill and emotion.
The single keyed piano sounds the same throughout. It just works. We can even say, seamlessly.
The piano with different keys have variation in sound...pitch...emotion. Choice...brilliant.
