How Pretentious Is This iPad Air Spot?

Dear Dr. Ads,

I was just sitting there on Sunday watching the New England Patriots get shredded by the Denver Broncos when this iPad Air spot popped up:

 

 

Seriously?

– iDon’tGetIt

Dear iDon’t,

You mean you never watched Dead Poets Society where John Keating (played by Robin Williams) says to his students:

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

So you never saw this (tip o’ the pixel to ZDNet)?

 

 

You need to brush up on your Whitman, man. Or maybe just your Williams.

Yo.
