The new HomePod ad features music, dancing, and space-time bending


Ads can be quite the art. Apple has proved this not once and does it yet again with its most recent ad, which shows how easily you can be immersed in music. That's in case you own the HomePod, of course.

The ad shows a young woman, played by English singer and dancer FKA Twigs, coming home on a rainy night. The moment she steps inside her loft, she asks Siri to play her favorite song. What then follows is a 3-minute spectacle including dancing and apartment extensions, while playing in the background is 'Til It's Over' by Anderson .Paak. The ad itself is quite impressive and leaves a good vibe after you watch it. Furthermore, it shows the power of music and how it could instantly change your mood from 'wanna-die' to 'life is wonderful'.

What's your opinion on the advertisement? Did it provoke you to show off your dancing skills or at least made your day a tiny bit better? Express yourself via the comment section below.

I am afraid most here won't like this ad/short because it is too artistic and requires more of them than just dumb specs recitation. This to me feels more of a brand ad/short than a homepad, nevertheless it accomplished selling Apple as different/unique.

Art is subjective.

Lol, this really makes me want to buy a function-limited speaker. She should have a coaster under her drink and under her homepod...

Thanks for the artists' name, never heard of her and googled her. She is very talented indeed.

Yes, she really is, I don’t understand how artists like her are not more famous

Wow the ad is so good. For me My Life is Incomplete without Music. Whenever I’m tired or had a rough day I just listen and baam I feel very much refreshed.

Too over the top...doesn't relate to the HomePod capabilities. I see this as an expression of music rather than a product that will cater to everyone's senses. Apple needs to take a page from Sonus and build this is a speaker package solution for an entire home based on sound quality and fidelity rather than take on the likes of Amazon Echo, Google as a smartspeaker. HomePod is more of marketing tool towards good sound quality and fidelity rather than functionality of a smartspeaker. Apple knows this...

"Too over the top...doesn't relate to the HomePod capabilities" Because that would end up being a 10 second advert.

Nice video ... with a stereo sound ... hmmm interesting. Why isn't an ad for a Homepod in mono? Woudn't it be more fitting?

What was in her water?! Another ad by Spike Jonze was Kenzo World. That was “interesting” as well.

He did direct Being John Malkovich, which was an 'interesting' movie as well.
