Apple has been taking the less is more approach with its recent series of ads featuring fun banter between Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.
Individually, the two entertainers have undeniable charisma. Put them together and there seems to be a natural chemistry that is reminiscent of the Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin duo of yesteryear. We don't even get to see them in Apple's run of ads, we simply hear their voices and see what we're assuming are their own hands playing with the company's new hardware. The results are hilarious.
The latest ad - entitled Gamers - sees Fallon and Timberlake trash talking each other whilst playing Vainglory. The excellent MOBA has become the most recent poster child for Apple's new hardware, taking over Real Racing's previous role. Vainglory is a great choice, as not only is it an impressive looking piece of eye candy, but it also has the gameplay goods to back up its visuals.
Vainglory is to MOBAs what Hearthstone is to collectible card battling games. It has that same amount of accessibility with a wealth of depth once you scratch beneath the surface. It's also free-to-play, with an IAP system that feels quite fair and balanced, another similarity to Hearthstone.
