Apple Genius Spots

Apple has launched a series of new television commercials featuring an Apple Genius store assistant, aired during the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The Apple Genius, in the signature blue t-shirt, is called to help passengers on an airplane on final approach (Mayday), help a neighbour whose wife has just given birth (Labor Day), and sort out the guy behind him in the hotdog stand queue (Basically).
