In a new ad for the iPhone 7, children act out the balcony scene from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”

The ad starts with Juliet running to the balcony and delivering the well-known line, “Oh Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo?” The boy playing the role of Romeo responds before the movie set fades away and the kids are left on a school stage. The girl’s father is shown filming the video on an iPhone 7.

According to Apple’s website, the iPhone 7 has a 12MP camera that “captures high-resolution video up to 4K” and a new f/18 aperture to improve videos shot in low light.
