Apple today released a new ad for Group FaceTime. And what better way to show how this new feature works than by having a number of Elvis impersonators sing "There’s Always Me," which the real Elvis recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra back in 1961.
It is interesting to see Elvis impersonators of all shapes, sizes and colors in one commercial. And when they can all appear in a video chat at the same time on your iPhone or iPad screen, that is certainly something to sing about.
You'll probably get to see this 60 second ad play during your favorite prime time television shows. But you if you can't wait to see it, you can tap on the video at the top of this article to view it now.
