iPhone Mania -- Hey, That's Brooklyn!

The Gizmodo blog brings us the latest "unofficial" iPhone ad showing diverse groups of New Yorkers -- Jews, Arabs, the deaf -- talking about the product's edgy features.

According to a Gizmodo correspondent, the barber shop in the video is the Benoit Barber shop on Park Place and Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, and the Arab guy in the deli is from the same neighborhood.

Nice ad? You betcha. Unofficial? Probably not. According to MediaPost, a casting call for individuals of diverse backgrounds to take part in an identical ad concept, to be filmed in Brooklyn and Manhattan, went out in April.
