Watch Apple's first Music ad

New, 21 comments

True to form, Apple unveiled its new music service, Apple Music, with a brand new ad, and it was as glossy as you could ever expect. Here, the company gives us an abbreviated history lesson on music sharing and distribution, starting with the victrola in 1888, moving on up to radio and records, and eventually landing on digital music and streaming. (But what about the Walkman?) It's pretty clear that it wants their new platform to be as revolutionary to music as the innovations that came before it. Of course, it needs to beat its competitors before it can achieve revolutionary status.
