iPhone 4 Commercial ft. Morgan Freeman

Following the success of the original iPhone commercial released in August 2009, we created a new spot based on all of the features that are available with jailbreaking the new iPhone 4. This includes using “Display Out” and the variable functionality of BT Stack to use Bluetooth devices like Wiimotes and keyboards to extend features that are not implemented well with just a touch screen. Another objective of the spot was to give light to the iPhodroid project witch allows android to run on the 3G, and can currently be used to hack PS3’s with version 3.41 firmware. Akira created a hilarious “iPhone” song for the commercial and impersonated the voice of Morgan Freeman to lend a familiar tone to the spec commercial.

OUR VIDEO

If you’ve ever played MGS4 and gotten the solar gun and are familiar with the in-game energy drink tie-in commercial for REGAIN you’d understand how and why this video came about. It’s a natural mix.

SOLAR GUN, “SUNLIGHT!!!”

REGAIN The youthful Snake

Of course we couldn’t have a Sunny Delight parody without mentioning the purple stuff
