The iPhone Marimba ringtone is iconic. It�s just a few notes played on an African xylophone, but somehow, it captures everything that is light and breezy about Apple�s platform.

The problem is, everyone uses it as a ringtone. Like Nokia�s overexposed ringtone before it, Marimba�s musical resonance has been oversaturated for most of us.

That Great Marimba Remix Is Now Starring In Its Own iPhone Commercial [Video]

Remember that incredible remix of the Marimba iPhone remix from earlier today? When I originally posted it, I suggested it�d make an incredible music track for an official Apple ad. Little did I think that Cult of Mac reader Ryan Simmons would actually edit one together for us, using footage from previous Apple iPhone ads.

Fantastic. Ditch John Malkovich, Apple� go with Marimba.
