Apple Promotes Sticker Packs with New Video

Apple released another installment in its iPhone 7 ‘practically magic’ video series today that celebrates stickers. The spot, called ‘Sticker Fight’ pulls sticker packs out of the Messages app and into the physical world. Set to a single by The Monks called ‘Boys are Boys and Girls are Choice,’ which has a fantastic 60s-style beat, the video features a sticker fight that breaks out across a city with people slapping stickers on each other and practically everything else in the landscape.

Sticker Fight perfectly captures the fun of sticker packs. Every week as we put together the Club MacStories Weekly newsletter, which includes a section called ‘The Album’ highlighting our favorite sticker packs, a sticker fight invariably breaks out as we test them out on each other and other friends. It’s great to see Apple bringing stickers to life and highlighting the iOS 10 feature because they are exactly as depicted, a playful addition to any conversation that often says more in a single sticker than you could ever convey with text.

I’m also impressed by the breadth and depth of the stickers chosen for Apple’s video, which includes 50 different sticker packs drawn from every corner of the iMessage App Store. There are big-name sticker packs like Disney’s Minnie Mouse and Kimoji, but there are just as many fantastic packs from indie artists like MarcyMoji, which we covered previously and The Iconfactory’s Route 66 Stickers, as well as wonderfully weird packs like Shark Head and Nyan Cat.
