The Magic of Mini, Apple's Annual Holiday Ad

| 26 days ago


Apple just dropped their annual holiday advertisement for this year, and the theme carries a little dose of magic for everyone!

A Little Joy Never Sounded So Big

This year's Apple holiday ad, called "The magic of mini," features the HomePod and HomePod mini smart- speakers. The ad also features American rapper, singer, and songwriter Tierra Whack.

The opening scene in the ad involves a very sad looking Tierra walking around town with her AirPods Pro's in and singing her song "feel good."

Tierra slowly makes her way home, and this is where the magic happens. Tierra calls for Siri on her HomePod to turn up the volume, and magically the HomePod turns into the HomePod mini, and out comes a livelier mini Tierra!

Soon after this transformation, Tierra and mini-Tierra start to sing and dance their way into a better mood with her song "Peppers and Onions."

Platform for Rising Star

Apple is popular for showcasing emerging talent in featured advertisements.

This year's featured artist, Tierra Whack, is a 24-year old Philly native who made waves in the music industry with her debut album "Whack World."

In 2017, Whack was nominated for the Best Music Video Grammy award for her single, "Mumbo Jumbo."

The songs featured in the Apple ad, "Feel Good" and "Peppers and Onions," are the latest tracks from this delightful musician.

Turn Up the Holidays with HomePod

The 2-minute advertisement is a funky and fun musical journey alluding to the reoccurring theme at Apple of how music can help transform your mood.

The featured devices being the HomePod and the HomePod mini, help strengthen this theme.

The HomePod is currently priced at $299, while the HomePod mini is tagged at $99.
