Whether you’re working in a small or large company, a boss or a newcomer, Apple devices will make your life easier. In the new American company spot, Apple at Work – The Underdogs, a team of four employees find themselves having to present a project to their boss in just two days. The mission seems almost impossible, but in their help, there are all the devices and services that Apple has to offer, from iPad Pro to iPhone, from AirDrop to Siri, and much more.
As well as seeing how technology is used, it’s fun to follow the evolution of their idea from theory to practice. In fact, the team is working on the design and manufacture of a round pizza carton. Same cardboard that is actually used inside the cafeteria of Caffé Macs for Apple employees in Cupertino.

This makes us understand the key to reading the movie, which focuses on the psychology of the character: this Joker is different from all the others.
It’s not going to be easy to compare with the masterful interpretations brought to the big screen by Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and Jared Leto, but the film promises to be a great success.
