Apple is wasting no time to create demand for the iPad Mini. Launched Tuesday, the product appears in a newly released ad, above.

Developed by agency TBWAMedia Arts Lab, the spot features no narration — just a shot of the larger iPad playing “Heart and Soul” on a piano app. The camera then reveals the smaller iPad, playing along in a piano duet. It concludes with black text against a white background that reads: “iPad mini.”
