👍 for first Vision Pro ad

It's a great video, and reminiscent of another Apple marketing spot.

The first TV ad for the Vision Pro — the $3,499 mixed-reality headset coming early next month — is already one of Apple’s great ads.

The fun spot shows a bunch of memorable moments from pop culture where various movie stars and characters strap on masks, glasses, goggles and headsets — before, of course, someone straps on a Vision Pro.

If you get a sense of déjà vu when watching it, it’s because it closely resembles another famous Apple ad. See if you can guess which one before clicking the link.
