Viral video: Ellen DeGeneres’ Apple plug

Having fun with George W. Bush—and her new iPhone Pro Max.

From the Ellen show Tuesday on CBS:

People were upset. They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president? And they didn’t even know I was holding the brand new iPhone 11.

Cue the video:

My take: DeGeneres at her best. Pretty good product placement too.

    Patrick Mahomes from the Kansas City Chiefs was also seen with one on the intro to Sunday Night football. These free ads resonate with their respective audiences.

      And Ben Rothelisberger (injured Steelers quarterback) got fined $5k for wearing his Apple Watch on the sidelines. (Violation of NFL rules about unapproved connected devices). That fine got a lot more attention than the watch itself got 🙂 Apple should send him a check to cover the fine (but it’s not like Big Ben can’t afford it.)
