Amidio Teaches Apple How to Make an Awesome Christmas Ad with Futulele: Xmas Ads 2012 and Apple [Videos]

By on December 30, 2012

Recently Apple’s Christmas Commercial was aired to masses in which a girl appears with singing “I’ll Be Home” to her grandfather via FaceTime on an iPad mini. That was not as impressive ad as it might be and majority of Apple fans disappointed from the little bit inadequate idea that worked behind this Apple’s Xmas Ad. So, clever guys at Amidio took it as an excellent opportunity for them and came with their own but extremely awesome version of Apple’s commercial for Christmas 2012 promoting iPad mini.


On watching this striking commercial as a big spoof of Apple’s own Xmas ad, you will surely feel that Amidio’s version is far better than Apple’s one. In the new ad, we met with a fully grown up charming girl singing the same song, but this time using Amidio’s Futulele app to also play the tune on her iPad mini. Pretty attractive and cute work I will like to say for Amidio ….full marks.Many thanks to Cult of Mac for spotting this extremely awesome ad.

Actually, Futulele is a $3 app  available at App Store that turns your iPad or iPad mini into a digital Ukulele instrument. It comes with amazingly boosted Retina graphics and features 72 pragmatic sounding Ukulele string samples.

It is not a secret that many iPad owners also have an iPhone, so Futulele is an excellent and innovative reason to get the best musical juices flowing out of both. A special guitar-shaped case holds the two devices, making it possible to select the chord on the iPhone and strum along the iPad screen, just as on a regular instrument.

Changing a chord requires only one tap, and the strumming technique is easy and convenient. No external wires or hardware accessories are needed, since the devices use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi (selected automatically) for communicating.

Check out the full blown graphics;



You can check several videos of people playing songs on their iPads from the official web site.

Key features include:

• the best-sounding digital Ukulele
• very easy to play! No music background needed!
• crystalClear 4.0 Sound Engine with 72 MultiSamples
• strings respond to the speed of strumming!
• gorgeous Retina graphics (fully optimized for the new iPad)
• 4 Side-Buttons for FingerPicking with Pitch Bend
• automatic Strumming mode with 15 Patterns
• 132 Possible Chords
• 15 Pre-Defined Chord Sets
• create you own chord sets easily
• record to .WAV/.M4A
• 4 FX: Grand Stereo Reverb, 3-Band EQ, Lush Chorus, Tape Delay

Fukulele for iPad works with Amidio’s player software for the iPhone as Futulele Remote, that is a free download, which obtains chord information from iPad running Futulele and then drives info about the existing chosen chord back to Futulele.

First watch Apple’s original Christmas 2012 ad;

And you will shout in Steve Jobs’ voice; that’s typical agency bullshit.

Now check out Amidio’s version of Apple’s ad for xmas 2012;

Surely, Amidio has beaten Apple at its own game.

Even Samsung’s holiday ad 2012 seems much better than Apple’s lackadaisical commercial;

If we speak about best holiday and Xmas ad from Apple; last year’s Xmas ad featuring Santa Claus and Siri is still the most convincing and attractive for techies.

Majority of critics believe that Coke’s Christmas ads are worth watch dueto their amusing concept and warmth for celebrating Xmas and holidays.
