Gen Y Ad “Misunderstood” Wins 2014 Creative Emmy

Want a powerful insight into Gen Y?  Then look at this ‘Misunderstood’ ad that has just won the Emmy Award for 2014′s Outstanding Commercial.

The ad, for Apple’s iPhone (Park Pictures – TBWAMedia Arts Lab) explores the generational fault line between Gen Y and their elders.  Are we a generation of self-absorbed slaves to digital screens, or part of a new creative generation with a digitally empowered imagination?

You can guess which side One Infinite Loop comes down on.  But the hopeful ad is moving, insightful and a nice counterpoint to all the Gen Y/Millennial bashing going on…

It also reminds us why we love marketing.
