Apple has launched its first iPhone commercial during the television coverage of the Oscars. The iPhone is scheduled for launch in June.
The commercial shows a series of short clips of well-known actors from well-known movies answering the phone (no, not the iPhone) and saying “hello”. The actors include everyone from to Jerry Lewis to Robert DeNiro to Samuel Jackson to Mr Incredible – to name just a few.
The commercial ends with an iPhone appearing, followed by the words “Hello” and “Coming in June”, and closing with an Apple logo.

Actually, it’s a quite a boring commercial. It was obviously made to be screened during the Oscars, and while you can happily watch it once, it just doesn’t have the same cool/funny factor of the “Get a Mac ads”.
I guess “Get an iPhone” doesn’t quite work.
