Apple doesn't seem to have missed a beat since Tim Cook took the helm. But Jobs' mark is still firmly on the company. His mantra was to create a solid product, be arrogant about it, and create a cool culture around it so people will have to have it.
Apple has been slow to use celebrity inspired commercials in the past, and I'm sure there was much discussion as to who was "brand-worthy" before making the final choices.
The cast, thus far has been Samuel L. Jackson, Zooey Deschanel and John Malkovich. Will there be more to come? For arguments sake, we pose the question, who did Apple miss that would have been a perfect fit for the rebellious, ultra-cool Apple brand.
I bounced it around the office and here were a few suggestions.
Gary Oldman, Robert Downey Junior, Martin Scorcese, Francis Ford Coppolo (although Sophia Coppolo might be a more natural fit) and Harvey Keitel. Any other names come to mind?
We'll look forward to your suggestions. I'll share them on Monday. Have a great weekend.
