Google Pixel 6 Commercial – The Music, and the First Non-Racist Phone?

Hello and thanks for checking out my post today. If you’re interested in other popular TV commercials, click on my Popular TV Ads page to find out more about a lot of them. Today’s post is about Google, which put together a minute-long ad showing how their Pixel 6 phone isn’t racist has a nice camera. Check it out…

The Music. Performing the soundtrack of this commercial is Lizzo with “If You Love Me.” Here’s a live performance of the song…

I can’t find many positive reviews of the commercial, even if the phone itself is an improvement on color, tone, and accuracy. In fact, the pictures they used for the “dark” photos were pretty terrible examples of photography in general. The lighting would make it difficult to get a good shot of anyone no matter their color. And similarly, the photo subjects and locations used to show off the camera in the second half of the ad would’ve worked well with most smart phone cameras.

In regards to pandering (or platitudes?), this commercial hits a home run. They even managed to include a gay black couple so that might be a grand slam. They would’ve had a hat-trick if one of the models identified as a trans, but maybe they’re saving they/them for the Google Pixel 7.

But if Google was hoping to unify the world with this ad, it’s a gigantic flop. I think most people are tired of messages of unity from companies (and politicians, for that matter) but then immediately show us, and promote, the divisions.

How do you feel about the commercial? Does it make you want to go out and drop $900 for the Pixel 6 Pro?

Thanks for dropping in…
