Forget MTV - Apple's iPod ads are the new music-star makers
Nick Haley, 18, took just 30 minutes to pluck the Brazilian band CSS from obscurity and hurl it into the national spotlight.

---------- FIX YOUR THINKING COMMENTARY ----------
I've personally purchased 3 songs I have seen in Apple advertisements - Technologic by Daft Punk / Dance Tonight by Paul McCartney / 1234 by Feist . I never would have even heard these songs otherwise.
