Lol, talk about an easy advertisement to put together. I guess it's kinda fitting for the Oscars, though.

I enjoyed the entire commercial until the end, when I figured out it was an iPhone ad...

I am seriously getting sick of those fish swimming between those eggs in the wallpaper on the phone. I say goodbye to them.

... but as mentioned by many people - this is a teaser.

Not the entire world lives on Neowin. ;) (Wish they did though)

That would be amazing. So many fewer stupid people doing stupid crap with computers.

I can't wait til the "Hi, I'm an iPhone" commercials...

Ya know, teasers are nice, but to anyone who doesn't know anything about the iPhone, it just looks like a little bit fancier, but normal cellphone. It doesn't really scream "give me attention, I'm going to rock the cellphone world" like you would think an ad coming from Apple would do.

@ the two of you above me - are you kidding? The amount of stupid people doing stupid things would increase something greater than exponential :p

I can't wait either.
I hope Microsoft and all the other cell phone manufacturers competing against the iPhone respond with ads along the lines of the Mac versus PC advertisements, but reversed.

iPhone: "Hi, I'm an iPhone."
Smartphone: "Hi iPhone. I'm a Smartphone. Welcome to the club."
iPhone: "I can play music and do email."
Smartphone: "We've been waiting for you."
iPhone: "Thanks."
Smartphone: "We have been able to play music for quite a while now. Did you say you do email?"
iPhone: "Yes. I check for new email all the time."
Smartphone: "Our emails get pushed to us when they come in. So do our appointments and schedule."
iPhone: "What?"
Smartphone: "That way we don't waste bandwidth."
iPhone: "Oh, really? But I can work on GSM networks."
Smartphone: "That's impressive."
iPhone: "Thanks."
Smartphone: "No, really. That's nothing to be ashamed of. I am available for CDMA / EVDO, GSM and UMTS networks. I can also interface with inventory control applications, do spreadsheets and database interfacing."
iPhone: "Ummm...."
Smartphone: "Well, you have to start somewhere."
iPhone: "But I can make calls, listen to music and retrieve emails."
Smartphone: "You said that already. Did I mention my brother can do all I can do plus do GPS mapping?"
iPhone: "No..."
Smartphone: "Yes, it's true. He can do what I do and give you directions to your destination."
iPhone: "Really?"
Smartphone: "Absolutely. And my other brother can do all that and play music on your car stereo."
iPhone: "Oh."
