Ellen Fiess is an unlikely internet celeb. Her Apple “Switch” ad was among the first of the Errol Morris helmed commercials, and for whatever reason her fame clock seems permanently stuck at 14:59.
Apple, never one to give up on a seemingly good thing, dipped back into the Fiess well for their G4 commecial, but never aired it. Wonder why?
**Update** For the uniniated, here’s a link to her original ad. Beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep!

My guess is because someone realized that perhaps the testimonial from girl who looks and sounds stoned out of her gourd might not make for an effective selling tool. After all, everyone knows that hippies don’t have money.
