Cape Town’s the real star of Apple’s Watch Series 4 ad

Apple may have been trying to showcase its new Apple Watch Series 4, but its one filming location in particular glimpsed within its new ad that piqued our interest.

With “Hokey Pokey” playing in the background, the ad tracks the daily movement of people across the world, all doing what they seemingly love. However, if you look at little closer, you may spot a Table Mountain or two.

A large portion of the advertisement was filmed in Cape Town.

Bo-Kaap, the CBD, the Atlanic Seaboard, Hout Bay, and Camps Bay beach are all visible in the heavily-cut 60 second clip.

“Apple Watch has been inspiring people everywhere to be more active, healthy, and connected. That’s what it’s all about,” the company writes in the video description on YouTube.

It’s not the first time Apple has used Cape Town as a backdrop for its content though. In 2017, it used Table Mountain in its iPhone 7 photography tutorial.

Enjoy it below, and see how many Cape Town landmarks you can spot.
