Plot / Description

"Wanna Bet" 
This commercial begins with an iPhone sitting on a table. He answers it (on speaker phone), and we see he is at a restaurant, and the waitress just walks up. Before letting they guy (Kenny) who called say anything, the guy at the diner says that "it was 1995". Kenny insists that "it was 1993". As the conversation continues, we learn that they are arguing about what year a particular song was released. While he's talking on the phone, the guy with the iPhone starts looking up the answer on the internet (Wikipedia). He types in "Whoomp" which brings up the results and when he starts looking at the page, we see that Kenny was right - it was released in 1993. Instead of admitting defeat, the man says that the restaurant on fire and he'll have to call him back later.
