Nokia has recently been airing two new spots in the UK for their N-Series mobile phones. Created by Wieden + Kennedy, London both commercials feature strange animated headphones that embody whatever style of music that the phones, which are connected to the headsets, are playing. Supposed to represent completely different styles of music, the headsets are “pitted” against one-another in an animated battle. The one above is called Pop Princess vs. DJ and you can view the other commercial in the set below.
