i disagree, Maynard starts cracking some pretty mean one-liners around the 85-minute mark

This is literally the most played commercial. ESPN, NBC, Comedy Central, TNT, HGTV, FOX, TLC... every station is playing this. Absolutely unbelievable.

37 million views on youtube in 1 week. Would not be surprised if this is the highest trending video of last week.

yeah, the iPhone commercial is BY FAR the biggest thing to happen to the Smashing Pumpkins since like 1996, 1997. So now Billy has a new generation of fans who will either forget about the song by next week or stick around long enough to be disappointed by the new materiel.

It's such a terrible edit of the song too. The lyrics don't make sense the way they pieced it together.

Perhaps this is the most dynamic thing we have seen the Pumpkins do since Jimmy would come out and expose himself during 1979.

Thumbs up

the way they edited the song for the commercial is strange, but overall i like the commercial and i never would have guessed this of all songs would be in a commercial

it prompted me to go back and listen, what a gorgeous song. and then i listened to more of mcis, and it was really nice to revisit it. itís pretty great when the things that have such an impact on you as a teenager hold up like this

It was all downhill from MCIS.

I can't tell if the editing is really off or if I've heard the original too much

Like why did it never ******* 'the days are much too bright'? And if it goes into the verse, why not go into 'through the empty space'

The kind of stuff Billy used to really excel at - giving his songs atmosphere.

I've always loved walking home at dusk, while the sky is almost totally dark, and playing this, singing along. It's my happy place song.

because it potentially implies a shortcoming of the camera's non-nighttime abilities
