Funny You Should Ask…

Google is putting the “ad” in “shade” with their latest spot teasing the release of the new Pixel smartphone.

That ain’t the only thing getting teeeeased in this 30-second ad.

In the wake of Apple’s iPhone X announcement — swiftly followed by mass public outcry ranging from face-recognition fear to “wtf happened to the iPhone 9?” to “ LOL, HOW much is it?” — Google took this opportunity to drag its competitor. 

Given its timely release, subtle delivery, and the brilliant use of Big Pun’s ‘90s hit, “Still Not a Player”, the ad makes a statement in a great way.

…The iPhone Excess.
