To launch the promotion for the Steve Young football app for the iPad, this commercial hilariously advertises the game with a cheesy 1980s twist.
Entitled 'iBuddy,' this commercial shows an overgrown man playing with his iPad and treating it like his best friend; this overgrown man is wearing overalls and rides his tricycle, plays hide-and-seek and spends quality time with his iPad. The 1980s commercial theme is a comical method to poke fun at the retro commercials. The song also has a touch of corniness, which adds to the laughs.
The clever sing along song is chirpy and includes lines such as "I grab my iPad and I'm instantly glad and I only wish that Steve Jobs was my dad!"
