I think the Pixies are one of the world’s most overrated bands, so I didn’t know the song in this iPhone ad I’ve seen in heavy rotation. Twitter buddy hoover_dam recognized it. Here’s how Slate put it:
Yeah, that’s pretty much it. And the singer in this case looks like she’s about 16. I’m not naive about teenagers, but it’s a little disturbing anyway.
I was also told on Twitter that one of the apps in the ad is basically AutoTune for the iPhone. AutoTune. On a Pixies song. On Twitter, I said that’s like using a filter to normalize a face in a Picasso.
