Apple creates 30 second ad to commemorate closing of Beats deal
Just then, Siri is heard from. Talking to Mikey and Tina like the voice of God from above, Apple's personal virtual assistant says she heard that Dr. Dre is having a party. Mikey asks for directions to Dre's party, but is shot down by Siri. "Sorry Mikey and Tina. Dre's party is invitation only," she says. Tina says that she didn't want to go anyway, although Mikey still wants that address. "Siri, just tell me," he pleads. And in a funny bit of self-deprecation, Siri says, "Sorry, I didn't get that." The ad ends with the Apple and Beats logos on the screen.
Apple's $3 billion pick up of Beats is the largest acquisition in company history.
