Apple iPod Shuffle Clip Prototypes

Apple has just launched ‘Clip’, the latest TV ad for the iPod Shuffle. To the sounds of Prototypes’ “Who’s Going to Sing?”, the 30 second spot features ten women and men clipping the new iPod shuffle to various parts of their clothing: jeans pocket, shirt pocket, t-shirt neck, hoodie pocket, halter-top seam, scarf, fatigues shirt lapel, jacket and so on. The super: “Put some music on. iPod shuffle”.
