Google’s #BestFriendsForever ads have been very popular. Ads in which iPhone and Pixel are best friends have been keeping people entertained for a while now, and a new ad just dropped. In this ad, the iPhone and Pixel are enjoying a spa day together, actually.
iPhone & Pixel enjoy a spa day in Google latest #BestFriendsForever ad
First and foremost, the setting itself is quite funny. Both phones have a cucumber over their “eyes”, or should we say “cameras”. People usually do have them over their eyes, so… there you go.
During the video, an iPhone complains to a Pixel that “these launches just keep getting harder”. Then it goes down memory lane, to the very first event, which occurred 16 years ago. Then he admits that he’s a little sad.
That’s the point where an iPhone said: “Now it seems like every time I turn around, phones like you are doing stuff I can’t. Like unblurring old photos, answering unknown calls with AI, and live translating messages. It’s exhausting but I still have a few tricks up my sleeve”.
Following that, Pixel is curious, and he asks the iPhone what tricks? At that point, an iPhone indirectly says it’ll get Type-C charging, trying to keep it a mystery, but the Pixel managed to guess it, which shocks the iPhone.
Google took this opportunity to promote its Pixel 8 launch event
After all that, a tagline appears, and says: “Rest up for October 4”, which is the Pixel 8 launch event, of course. As a reminder, the iPhone 15 event takes place on September 12. Google is also expected to announce the Pixel Watch 2 and the new Pixel Buds Pro colors during that event, in addition to the Pixel 8 series.
This ad is yet another fun way to highlight some features of the Pixel phones, features that iPhones do not have. At the same time, Google kind of poked Apple for taking so long to introduce Type-C charging.
The ad has a duration of around a minute. In case you’re interested, it’s embedded below.
