“Yeah, who doesn’t at this point?” I love that line from Timothée Chalamet in the new Apple TV commercial. Check it out then scroll down for more info about the ad, including the song which came out over 30 years before Timothée was born!
The Music. The soundtrack of this minute-and-a-half long commercial is a French song called “Que C’est Triste Vinise” by Charles Aznavour. Here’s the full track…
Now, before you go off assuming I’m hip and cool (I get that alllll the time, sheesh), I didn’t and basically STILL don’t know exactly who Timothée Chalamet is. This wouldn’t bother me so much except that when the commercial came on during NFL football and my 16-yr old niece was nearby, she said, “Is that Timothée Chalamet?” Immediately I’m thinking to myself that I, in fact, am not cool and hip. I have no idea who Timothée Chalamet is. But Ben, don’t you remember the kid in the green stripes in the McCormick commercial?
No. No, I don’t. But anywho, I guess he’s the next Hollywood heart throb with 20-something’s (and teen girls, evidently?).
With that said, I enjoyed the Apple TV+ commercial. Funny, obscure music that was actually not obscure in the 60s, I call that a win. So Apple, you might as well… call him. 😉
