Apple Parodies ‘The Little Mermaid’ in Newest Ad
’Part of Your World” is one of the quintessential Disney songs, and is one of the foundational pieces from The Little Mermaid musical, and it seems as though Apple has used its message to speak on the uniqueness of their newest Mac.
Posted as what 9to5.com has called an “unlisted video,” Apple is promoting the new iPad Pro with the tag line, “your next computer is not a computer.”
First brought to light by the @hubhip Twitter account, the video was posted on June 3rd; a date that precedes the iPadOS 15 announcements at WWDC21.

The ad is built around several instances where cables and traditional computer settings are hindering their users; juxtaposed with iPad users, equipped with the magic keyboard, utilizing the power of the newest Apple product in situations not hindered by those same traditional issues.
Long being the face of innovation, portability, and convenience in the tech world; Apple uses the song to speak to the desire for these traditional desktop users to grab hold of the promised Apple experience of free use, and portability; using the iconic Little Mermaid tune to get this point across.
Gaming, photo editing, and a long-lasting battery are displayed in the ad; while also showing the common issues facing users of other products who seek to engage in these activities and arenas.
The power and hardware of the device are noted by users everywhere; with new software updates expected, Apple users are surely excited for what’s to come with the new iPad Pro.
With all of the new features and upcoming announcements regarding the product, it’s no wonder that Apple parodies The Little Mermaid in their newest ad.
It’s still uncertain why Apple did not publicly release the ad, but Disney fans will certainly be entertained by the interesting and creative take on the timeless Disney classic song.
