This New Apple Commercial Will Play During the Olympics Opening Ceremony

Apple has come a long way since the groundbreaking, rebellious "1984" ad it aired during the 1984 Super Bowl. 

Apple is airing a new ad that's more heartwarming than heart-pounding during the Olympics Opening Ceremony on Friday night. The film is called "The Human Family," and features Maya Angelou reading her poem of the same name over photos and videos taken with iPhones. 

While it's certainly a departure from the company's earlier, anti-establishment messaging, it's definitely appropriate for the Olympics.
