Surprise Surprise: Apple cameos abound in Toy Story 3 trailer

We’ve all seen Steve Jobs crowbar Apple products into past Pixar films, but given how many Apple cameos we can see in the brief two and half minutes of Toy Story 3’s trailer, odds are this thing is going to play like an Apple commercial. In fact, I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ve heard the ending takes place inside Apple’s 5th Ave Store while Yael Naim’s New Soul plays.

Here we see the toys using an iMac…

… and Safari…

Oh, and there’s Andy’s computer, and iTunes…

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Billy for the tip!

    Are we really all that surprised by this?

  2. No, that’s the point. Unfortunately there’s no [sarcasm] tag to make my writing style more obvious…

    Actually, there is such a thing: www.


  4. Povilas says:

    So what? So because Jobs is related to Disney and Pixar you shouldn’t see an iMac or anything else made by Apple? So maybe only Dell and Windows? Come on.

    I’ve never seen any product placement including Apple products in past Pixar films. This would be the first. Which did I miss in the past Pixar films?

  6. ArtOfWarfare says:

    Actually, it was fairly obvious it was sarcasm.

    Who repeats “Surprise” without intending it to be sarcasm?

    Strangely, the UI for the chat window has the maximize and close buttons on the right side like it would in windows instead of left. Perhaps the texture-applicator forgot it was a mac screenshot behind his chat addition?

  8. I love these easter eggs for the nerdiest of nerds.

    Apple –> Pixar

    strange observation but I swear in the third image the writing which appears to say


    is also Japanese kana at the same time. Seriously!


    am I being weird?

    So does the Etch-A-Skech get replaced by an ipad.
    Just wondering?

  13. David says:

    @RowellE: Well, there was an iPod in Wall-E…

  14. Soulcapn says:

    @RowellE Wall-e’s restart sound is the same as a MAC. Also his TV is an iPod with a big lens in front of it.

    Many creatives use macs, it is no surprise that someone on the design team slipped this in.

  16. jayne says:

    Macs are the best! No surprise!

    My Friend Will Be Surprised When He Sees The Mac & Says Why Not Windows?
    But The Close Button Is On The Right On The Chat Its Seems Its Like Mac Windows
