Could Rick Schwartz be the ‘Rick’ referenced by Martin Scorsese in Apple’s latest iPhone ad? (If you haven’t seen it, watch the video above). Schwartz and Scorsese have worked together on many films, including Gangs of New York, The Aviator, and The Departed. Schwartz also lives in New York.
In the ad, Scorsese rides through New York in the back of a taxi asking Siri a number of questions, including whether or not he has just seen his friend ‘Rick’. Siri uses the Find My Friends app to determine where Rick is really located, and Scorsese says, ‘Oh no, that’s not Rick.’
