I love these new Apple advertisements:
But one thing I couldn’t help but wonder while watching them: Where are the older folks?
That is, where are the people of my demographic? Or my parents?
If you look closely you’ll see one or two people who may be 40 or 50 years or older, but overwhelmingly these are ads starring young people.
Apple does not want to be known as that company that is only popular with your parents.
A point that Samsung is happy to underscore with this ad:
Of course, Apple is hugely popular with your parents. And grandparents. And even great-grandparents.
Which is probably why Apple is so focused on the next generation of tech consumers.
And not just American tech consumers, but global tech consumers.
