Apple iPhone: Hello

Apple launched the first TV ad for the iPhone during the Academy Awards, with a montage of ‘hello’ moments from movies.

The 30 second ad begins in black and white with Lucille Ball answering a ringing rotary telephone, “Hello”. Characters from 31 movies and TV shows take it in turn to answer the phone and say “Hello”. The spot finishes with an iPhone featuring the name of John Appleseed, and the two phrases, “Hello” and “Coming in June”.
