A new Apple advertisement currently airing in the United States has swept everyone off their feet. The TV spot features a lovable little girl singing Bing Crosby's “I'll Be Home for Christmas” to her grandfather over FaceTime.
We don’t know what the situation is with other sites but Softpedia readers are hopelessly in love with the protagonist in “I’ll Be Home,” the latest television ad from Apple promoting not only the iPad mini, but also the bigger iPads.
“Who's the girl?” asks one commenter. “She is a star! Who is she?” asks another, followed by another, and another, and another.
“Apple needs to credit the girl for her awesome talent,” says a user identified as AbsentMuffler.
We’d say not to worry. Being featured in Apple’s TV ads at such a young age is credit enough and her career is only going upwards as a result of the 30-second clip where she clutches that small guitar singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” to her grandpa.
“I first saw the commercial tonight and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...I don't tear up much but this commercial did it. I guess I'm not a Scrooge after all,” writes antonio.
A user identified as coloradoschoolofrock who claims to be a music professor says, “I'll take perfect pitch over fast vibrato any day. Very clean vocal tone, I love her. Simple and perfect. I am a music teacher and this girls got it!”
“Absolutely the most adorable commercial I have ever seen,” says Maggs. “The first time seeing it brought tears to my eyes. I remember playing the piano long ago to my dad over the phone. I am a lot older now. Thank you for that warm memory. Only commercial I ever tevoed!”
“She is the next Disney star. Amazing,” says Rozee, and the list goes on.
One commenter suggests the girl is Angela Vazquez, a promising young singer who became famous after doing a near-perfect cover of Adele’s "Rolling In The Deep" with her two brothers handling the instrumental bit.
While the girl in Apple’s ad does seem to look a bit like Angela, we're not sure it's her. Maybe you can help.
