Last month we told you Apple’s filmed-in-Edmonton TV ad ‘Misunderstood’, was nominated for a 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Award in the ‘Outstanding Television Commercial’ category.
During an awards presentation on Saturday, Apple and its ad agency TBWA/Media Arts Lab along with production company Park Pictures received an Emmy Award for their nominated category as the best ‘Outstanding Commercial’.
The ad was released back in December 2013 and features a storyline where a family gathering in a snowy backdrop (Edmonton) during Christmas ends with an unexpected touching video. The commercial featured 23 family and extended family members related to Calgary-based actor, Chris Ippolito. The only non-family member was the ‘misunderstood’ teenager, American actor Logan Riley Bruner.
You can check out the ad below (Apple pulled the ad from their YouTube channel but it exists thanks to the Internet):
Here’s the full video made by the teen, which was magically beamed to the family television via AirPlay and Apple TV:
The main Primetime Emmy awards will take place one week from today.
