    Link: Piece of Me, Piece of You - Another well-produced Zune advert--this time with zombies, proving once again that their ads are better than iPods.

    not really
    zune still suxx like hell
    The ad had nothing to do with zune, they could have shown boobs with "zune" on them, it would have had the same effect

    "cool animation! i want to get a zune!"

    Zune commercials are terrible, but not nearly as horrific as any and all Apple commercials. iPods are too expensive compared to competitors, iPhones are NOT revolutionary, MacBook Air is total crap, and their commercials accurately reflect it.

    Creative Zen FTW

    They need to rethink their marketing plan. I don`t own a zune or an ipod. This commercial makes me wonder if they are saying people who buy Zunes are mindless zombies? That doesn`t seem like an effective convincing argument to get me to buy a Zune.

    "The ad had nothing to do with zune"
    I don`t see where you get that.. the ad was basically a music video and the zune is a device that plays music and video. And unlike other devices, they actually told you who the artist and director of the video was so you can go to their site and download it if you want.

    Also the whole zombie thing is supposed to reference the Zune Social, where you can share your songs wirelessly with other people who have the zune. It wasn`t too big of a stretch to see that.

    As far as the device goes, i`m very happy with my zune, i`ve had the 30GB for about a year now and I have had no trouble with it. I like the way it looks and feels, the controls are easier than the ipod and the display is nice and big.

    Anyone who buys an ipod without looking at the competition is an idiot. And I`m not saying zune either those are total crap. Ipod`s a just really overpriced for what you get. Well made? Sure. Worth it? I say not.
    And this commercial was absolutely terrible.

    I quite enjoyed this commercial. It`s creative. Yeah, I own an iPod but it sucks butt. Zunes are actually the way to go. My uncle got almost every MP3 there was and returned each one except the Zune. Which I`m hoping he`ll give me to get a new one. But anyways, sure there commercials are a bit weird, but they work!! I totally want one.

    Same here, I think only zune people will understand the social thing though. Have an old brown 22 gig brick. Enjoy it more then ipod. Only complaint I have is I am running pro x64 and the zune software isn`t compatible with my OS. Doesn`t matter though because there are work arounds.

    Plus iPods are hard as hell to mod. Zune has easy open access, well at least the old ones.

    1 last thing, I love zombies.

    I`m perfectly satisfied with my tiny off-market bootleg 1GB player.

    That`s one reason why Zune`s sell far less units than iPod`s. They spend all their money on ads and then don`t have enough to spend to make Zune a superior product. Besides, iPods kick Zune`s ass. And Dear Maelstrom... contrary to your opinion iPhone is revolutionary. Just look at how many phones jumped on the the touchscreen bandwagon after they learned about iPhone. Take a look at it`s features. And MacBook Air? The most revolutionary laptop ever for internet access. How many people use CD`S anymore? How many use other peripherals on the go? No one, that`s who. The Air is for incredibly portable internet access. It`s not supposed to replace your desktop.

    Bubba, I`ve seen more iPod commercials and ads than Zune. Either way it doesn`t matter to me since I think both products are garbage and prefer my Zen Vision W. It`s not the most portable but I like to watch movies on a screen in which I can make out what I`m watching.
    The only reason the iPhone would be considered revolutionary is the fact that it hold several gigs of storage and can be used as an MP3 player as well. Palm and Blackberries already had touchscreen capabilities (better phones and service as well).
    As for the Air, you just said it yourself, laptop for internet access, but I`m sure people get laptops for more than just their internet access. There are people who burn CDs and DVDs on the go for people like I do. Sure laptops aren`t supposed to be replacing desktops but it`ll sure be a pain in the butt to lug that thing around to places when needed.

    I agree with BlankTom.
    The commercial was extremly awesome, now im going to download that song.
    And I love my Zune. It`s better than any iPod any day. And it doesn`t freeze like an iPod.

    You all are stupid.
    These are not Zune ads.
    Zune pays for the music and the animation team to make art which they couldn`t do on their own and helps artist get out there.
    Zune just tags Zune at the end because they paid for it.
    And all Zune-arts have the theme of sharing.

    djdeway`s pretty dead on for this one. They create a lot of animations and videos as you can see from the url they posted at but the only real "commercials" they`re using to really sell their products are the ones actually seen on tv.

    As for people saying they don`t `get` the whole zombie thing, zombies have become incredibly popular with the market demographic they`re targeting. They`ve become increasingly popular among 18-25 year old demo since the resurgence of the popularity for classic horror films. It also adds a certain cache to the product, that the company understand what popular figures are pertinent to the demo, that would influence them to think that their product was also "of the demo".

    Also, I have an 80GB Zune. I used to have an 80GB Ipod. My Zune is so so so much better.

    I have a creative microphoto, best thing going, until it fuc*ed up and I have to squeeze the top-right hand corner to hear out of the right earphone. Still, it was way better than an ipod. Dunno if it was better than a Zune, I never tried one.

    And the iPhone is complete balls. Only reason people buy it is because of it`s reputation. If it was made by an unknown company, no one would want one.

    I have a zune 30gb.

    Dropped it so many times, on concrete, in water, and in snow. And it still works like the first day I got it.

    No complaints.

    Ipod is cheaper and better. I hate everything microsoft because they complicate everything all the time.

    I`m typing this on a Dell and the amount of wires, the complexity of the Operating system, the annoying updates and the unease with the non-modular parts (graphic cards, memory sticks, Hard drive...) is just annoying.

    I went to a computer store last week and saw the new Imac with the big arse screen. First reaction was "Where`s the computer... it`s the screen isn`t it?"

    I dont care that the Imac is less powerfull. I dont use all the power from my computer all the time anyway.

    I dont care that the Imac play less video games. I always loved console gaming a lot more then computer gaming anyway.

    The Imac looks a lot better, performs a lot better, is more simple to use, is made for people who dont know anything about computer ( Read everyone ) and it`s perfect.

    And it was half the price my girlfriend payed her MDG cpmputer ( Piece of crap ).
