It shows the iPhone being thrown into bags, being knocked off a table by a pesky pet cat, being used to take photos of friends in bars, and just generally being used in all sorts of hectic social situations.

Despite the advert being very cleverly put together...

There have been a series of rather unusual complaints.

Many people have complained online about having heart palpitations from watching the advert...

All because of the classic iPhone alarm.

The advert kicks off with the sound of the dreaded iPhone alarm...

And this has been causing stress and that feeling of dread in a lot of people, with many voicing their frustrations online.

Turns out, people really dislike that classic alarm tone.

The default iPhone alarm tone has become a universally hated noise because, let's face it, who really enjoys waking up to an alarm every morning?

Some people have claimed to get PTSD from the sound...

PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) occurs in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event.  It may sound dramatic, but many iPhone users have conditioned themselves negatively to the sound of the alarm.

PTSD is usually experienced in war veterans and survivors of disasters...

So can it really happen for iPhone users?

A psychologist has explained this unusual condition...

Jason O’Callaghan MSc BA HDIP, a psychologist specializing in the unconscious, spoke to UniLad. He thinks that it is actually possible to be conditioned by Apple. "These people have been conditioned that it’s time to get up in the morning and rush to work with this sound. But now, they’re getting it in their relaxation time because they’re hearing it in an advert."

The iPhone alarm is a negative reinforcement.

"It’s all about positive or negative reinforcement," he went on to explain, "If you get lots of likes on Facebook, that’s positive, if you speed down the road and get penalty points, that route will have negative reinforcement."

Generally, the sound of a morning alarm is associated with rushing around and being stressed...

"People are being conditioned to that sound by Apple, and for a lot of people, obviously, they’re being woken out of sleep and being forced to rush out to work by that sound. Naturally, that’s an anxious time, and now that sound is entering their private, relaxation time."

It's pretty unlikely that Apple will remove the ad...

Although it's a great advert, it's undeniable that the sound of that alarm sends shivers down the spine... watch it for yourself here!
