iPhone Mania Crosses Cultures…Or At Least NYC Boroughs

Here’s an interesting unofficial spot for the iPhone:

It’s made by a production company called “The Consultants.” It’s certainly more representative of real life in New York City than the other “diversity” oriented ads I’ve seen.
According to MacRumors.com, this ad was the result of a Craigslist casting call. The casting call asked for “people of diverse ethnic backgrounds discussing different functions and attributes of the unreleased phone in their native tongue while participating in everyday activities.” The song used is called “Young Folks” By Peter Bjorn and John.
So what’s your take on all this iPhone mania? Are massive amounts of people going to fork over $600 and upwards of $60 a month for this thing? We’ve got 12 days left. Are you gonna get one?
