Jaime Lannister fails to woo Annie from ‘Community’ in new Apple TV ad (video)

Who could ever resist real-life Danish heartthrob Nikolaj Coster-Waldau or his on-screen Westerosi heartthrob persona Jaime Lannister from HBO’s hit TV show “Game of Thrones”? Apparently, a very charming young lady by the name of Alison Brie.

Best known for her starring role on NBC and later Yahoo sitcom “Community”, as well as a recurring part in AMC period drama series “Mad Men”, she’s never sold on the passion and chemistry shared with his typically irresistible co-star.

The poor Kingslayer, here in possession of a full set of limbs, tries everything he can think of, including humming lustfully to a mood-setting Jeremih song. But he’s still harshly rejected by a fictional love interest who simply isn’t feeling it.

The moral of the story? Erm, that it happens to the best of us? That guys should stick to their main guns, and male actors to their best roles when trying to enchant their counterparts? Not even close.

Instead, the entertaining banter between these two hotties is meant to hype up the Apple TV, billed as “the future of television.” Why is the new fourth-gen digital media player so special? Among others, because it takes hands-free Siri voice commands, and integrates various iServices, like Apple Music.

Unfortunately, it’s slightly pricier than the competition, at $150 and up, and its ecosystem of apps lacks a certain pizazz. As does Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the eyes of Alison Brie, though we’re pretty sure that wasn’t the point of this commercial. Still, it’s interesting to see famous people endorsing something built by Cupertino that’s not the iPhone 6s or Apple Watch.
