Megadeth-soundtracked Apple commercial nominated for Emmy

Credit: Jeremy SafferThe nominations for this year’s Emmys were revealed earlier this week, but under the mountains of nominations for Game of Thrones — the show got a record-breaking 32 nods — you might have missed a nod for a Megadeth-assisted commercial.

Apple’s “Shot on iPhone XS” commercial, which is soundtracked by the thrash legends’ 1985 song “Last Rites,” is nominated for Outstanding Commercial. Megadeth announced the news Friday in a post on their website.

The commercial showcased vivid videos of nature filmed with the phone’s camera, all while “Last Rites” plays in the background.

The 2019 Emmys air live September 22 on FOX.
