Apple Highlights Gay Marriages in Beautiful ‘First Dance’ Ads

Apple just released an ad for the iPhone X that features same-sex couples who are sharing their first dance after tying the knot. The commercial, set to the tune of Never Tear Us Apart covered by Courtney Barnett, features numerous couples who celebrated the legalization of same-sex marriages in Australia by exchanging vows.


Just in November 2017 Australia voted for marriage equality—the news heard round the world—and marriages began as early as December, because folks couldn’t wait for the 30-day waiting period to begin on January 9th. Now, these beautiful group of Aussies are the subject of this commercial that is bringing on all the water works as it reminds me of my first dance with my hubby! It also makes me want an iPhone X—conflicted much?

The video was shot on the new iPhone X and are currently only targeted toward the Australian market, but let’s hope we get to see them around the globe very soon so that we can continue to celebrate that love always wins!




In addition to the full 1-minute video, Apple also released a few 15-second clips that highlight special moments with couples Nick and Rob, Meg and Anne-Marie, and Antony and Ron.
