Advert: Apple iPhone 5s – Powerful
Music: Phoebe Bridgers / Squeak E Clean – Gigantic (Pixies cover)
‘You’re more powerful than you think,’ says Apple in this gigantic international 90-second TV ad for the iPhone 5s, featuring a host of people making music and being creative with the smartphone. The soundtrack is a cover of the Pixies song Gigantic, originally from the band’s 1988 debut album Surfer Rosa. The cover was produced by music and sound design company Squeak E Clean Productions and is performed by LA indie singer/songwriter Phoebe Bridgers. Phoebe’s version hasn’t been released, although you can download the Pixies original from iTunes. Meanwhile, Phoebe has recently released an EP, Killer, which is available via her Bandcamp page on a pay-what-you-like basis.
