It's on right now during the OSU game. First time seeing it - what is Bono doing with a guitar? :P

It's all over CNN, FOX, ABC now......Apple is clearly calculating that this is overall good for them despite the pushback

I'm surprised that some of you are just seeing it. Granted, I don't watch too much TV but it's online.

I find myself looking up the commercial often because I think it's pretty awesome.

I watch a lot of TV and have only seen it twice.  I'm thinking it will be shown more once the album has it's official release.

Actually I think the ad will disappear with the official release date because the ad promotes the free iTunes download.

Just saw it during The Simpsons.

I'm going to be sad once this commercial stops airing.

Why would it stop airing on October 13th? Won't iTunes start carrying it for sale then? Just wondering aloud.

I think iTunes starts selling the album 5 weeks after Oct 13th (I sort off remember reading that)

Plus the ad advertises the album being given away for free

Here in Italy they're airing it at least three times a day now on the main channels.
