Apple Comercial

Post by sfpcc » Wed Jun 27, 2018 1:06 pm

Has anyone out there seen this Apple comercial? It Shows various people using their MacBooks while a somewhat creepy song is playing, ("Listen up and I'll tell a story, About an artist growing old.") That ad is somewhat effective in a weird way. The voice singing isn't exactly melodious, but it is honest and oddly touching.

I've heard the commercial but never gave it much thought till you posted this. Here is the wiki page of the singer....interesting.

The whole song. If the guy didn't suffer from mental illness I wouldn't be fascinated

Daniel Johnson is probably the most famous outsider musician in the past generation. They made a documentary about him and it is definitely worth tracking down. His songs have been covered by over a hundred musicians, he tours his nationally both for his art and is music.

I've had a chance to see him twice.
