Common and Afrika Bambaataa in new Zune Ad (Video)

 
You have to hand it to Microsoft: they really aren’t ready to let the Zune go. Here’s a new ad (one featuring less fat guy ass than this one) featuring Common and Afrika Bambaataa talking to a Zune user about her playing a Common song that samples Bambaataa. The ad also features visual shout-outs to other hip-hop albums (like Seeing Sounds and 808’s and Heartbreak), so apparently Microsoft thinks that promoting hip-hop is the way move Zunes. [Nahright]

I just saw this commercial on Comedy Central. Pretty cool compared to most commercials out there.

the only thing this commercial does is let iphone/itouch users use shazam to find out what the songs called and let them download the song through itunes...

jesse
