Apple borrows Ariel’s voice to sell iPads (video)

From Jody Serrano’s “Apple Channels Its Inner Little Mermaid to Try to Sell You the New iPad Pro” posted Saturday on Gizmodo:

Apple’s Little Mermaid parody, which features the classic song “Part of Your World,” began making the rounds on Saturday. Interestingly, the ad is on Apple’s official YouTube channel and was uploaded on June 4, a few days before the start of WWDC. Yet, the ad was not publicly released and is unlisted on Apple’s channel. Some say the private link was leaked on social media.

I, for one, cannot understand why Apple would sit on this gem. Being the Disney and Apple fan that I am, this video filled me with geeky delight.

My take: My little girls loved the Little Mermaid. I was always partial to Ursula.

    Brilliant find, and happy its brought into the light. As usual, a great ad by Apple. Being also a Disney and Apple geek, this too made me smile.

    And yes, I’ve lived every bit of that PC, custom build, double monitor, freakin’ cables, desk chair tethered and power cord / outlet seeking world. My iPads can address 80-90% of that world quite easily, at my leisure, in any room of the house, and on the go.
