Parody of Apple iPad mini "Piano" ad will tickle your funny bone
posted by Alan F. / Nov 05, 2012, 10:26 AM
What Apple seems not to have learned is that doing an ad like "Piano," as the spot is called, leaves you wide open to be made fun of and that is exactly what happened. Instead of stopping with the Apple iPad mini as with the original ad, the parody continues through the iDevice lineup and more. And to make sure that you do grasp the humor here, we've included the original ad as well as the parody, below.
We do have one warning. The other day, in response to something funny we wrote, a Phone Arena reader nearly choked on his soda. Perhaps you shouldn't be consuming any food or beverage while watching.

The original ad shows the arrogance of APPLE - it shows nothing special from any other tablet. I wonder how many are buying an iPAD after viewing the original commercial?

You really need to take a marketing course if you think that ad shows arrogance on Apple's part. Advertisements can do a LOT more than merely highlight new features. The iPad Mini obviously can't compete with the full-sized iPad directly through specs, so Apple is choosing to cultivate the "little brother" mentality, that the Mini is more than just a personal computing device, but rather a member of a family, as anyone who's ever played Heart and Soul on the piano with a younger/older sibling, cousin, or other loved one will understand. People like to think their devices have meaning beyond mere utility.
