Apple’s New HomePod Ad Directed By Spike Jonze Is Absolutely Mind-Bending

Is it art? Is it advertising? We’re guessing a great advertisement makes you forget you’re ever watching it and that’s exactly what Spike Jonze did with this fantastic advertisement for Apple HomePods.

Jonze is has a long rap sheet of fantastic works and this 4-minute work of art was no different. Jonze incorporated stunning contemporary backgrounds and tapped English musician and dancer FKA twigs for the leading role.

The Oscar-winning director follows a city girl through the streets of a bustling, urban downtown where she’s beat by the grind but finds solace in her apartment with the help of an Anderson .Paak track called “Til It’s Over.”

What’s even more incredible is that the entire ad was created by practical effects using a large set and hydraulics. So the shapeshifting you see in the video was actually physically happening in front of the camera.
