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).
An Apple Genius shows a fellow passenger how easy it is to make great home movies with iMovie. All before the tray tables are returned to their upright position. Click on the image below to play the MayDay video in YouTube (HD)
