It’s strikingly similar to Apple’s promotional videos. Company employee, white backdrop, product shots… heck, it isn’t similar… it’s pretty much the same thing.
Why do this? Did Google just like Apple’s style and copy it? Is there some sort of secret subconscious effort to draw in Apple customers? Or was Google just plain lazy?
I like Google. I use a lot of their applications, but I don’t know the answer to that question. It could be something else entirely. Whatever the reason… it’s just weird.
