Apple Is Thankful for the iPhone 5 in New Turkey Ad Pair of spots push more product features

Apple has a long tradition of holiday ads—notable past spots have included "Gift Exchange" for the Macintosh and of course last year's Santa spot with Siri for the iPhone 4S. On Tuesday night, Apple released its latest holiday commercial, "Turkey," timed to Thanksgiving, for the iPhone 5. It uses the holiday season, a propitious time for taking family photos, to push the device's Shared Photo Stream, which lets you share only the photos you want with only the people you want. As usual, we get a simple product demo, with pleasingly basic shots of a turkey and a pie, among other staples. (Thankfully, there's no gravy involved at all.) "It's as easy as pie," Jeff Daniels says in the voiceover. "Mmm, pie." A second spot, not specifically holiday related, has Daniels asking an orchestra to play louder and softer to demonstrate the iPhone 5's noise-canceling feature, which reduces excessive background noise when you're trying to make a phone call. These are the 94th and 95th TV spots in the almost 7-year-old campaign. See all the previous ones here. Credits for the new ones below.
