Best Buy Tries To Poach Apple Store Customers Into Their Stores With This New Christmas Ad [Video]



Best Buy has launched a new ad that hopes to lure Apple fans into its stores this Christmas. In addition to Macs, iPads, iPhones, and iPods, the humorous “Everything Apple at Best Buy” ad also includes an appearance from old St. Nick himself.

The clip is clearly aimed at Apple fans looking to spend their hard-earned cash on new gadgetry this holiday season, but perhaps unaware that Best Buy has “all the hottest Apple gifts, and the professionals to help.”

While many customers are quick to turn to their local Apple store for new Macs, iOS devices, and accessories, it seems Best Buy might be the place to go to avoid lengthy queues and grab bigger discounts this Christmas.

In the 30-second clip, a Best Buy employee demonstrates a FaceTime call on an iPad 2 to a customer who decides that she doesn’t need Santa to provide all the Apple products her family desires this Christmas.
