Apple's New iPhone 6 Commercials: What Does Twitter Think?
The first, called "Duo," features Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon humming the theme from "2001: A Space Odyssey." The second, titled "Health," again features Timberlake and Fallon debating who's healthier.
Since the debut of the iconic Ridley Scott-directed Mac spot nearly thirty years ago, Apple's ads are typically the subject of much debate. In the case of its latest iPhone 6 commercials, public opinion is generally positive, particularly among fans on Twitter.
For example, some are on board with the Timberlake/Fallon combo:

Is this a iPhone 6 commercial?
— Austin Crawford (@texthegod) September 10, 2014
And one offered up a different marketing plan:
The new Apple commercial should be a guy checking his iWatch then iPhone then iWatch then iPhone while standing in front of Grand Canyon.
