With the holiday season fast approaching, Best Buy has released a new ad, “Finding Santa”, that focuses completely on Apple products. The ad follows a young boy as he tries to find Santa, using all the latest Apple products. While Siri tells him where Santa lives, he has a hard time getting a hold of the elusive man in red until he tries FaceTime and finally manages to get him.
Apple will probably release its own ad for this year’s holiday season. In last year’s holiday ad, we saw Santa using Siri for help to get around homes and deliver gifts. This ad was deemed the most effective advertisement of the 2011 holiday season. Can Apple do it again this year? Maybe in this year’s Apple ad we’ll see Santa using Apple Maps to get around the world, although I’m not sure that everyone would get their presents if he did.
