You have probably already seen these ads, but I wanted to remind you all about them just in case you haven’t. Since the holiday season is nearing completion, it’s as good a time to watch the ads as any. As usual, the ads are pretty funny and show the good natured rivalry between PC and Mac.
A visit to the Apple website this morning revealed a Santa themed Get A Mac ad on the homepage. This new ad has an animated PC, Mac, and Santa singing a new version of “Santa Clause is coming to town”. Just when the song gets goig, PC sings to “buy a PC and not a Mac this holiday season”. Watching the ad is a great way to get into the Mac holiday season!
Update: The animated ad is now being aired on TV too.
Apple released a new Get A Mac ad on TV tonight (at least I saw it tonight for the first time). As usual, PC and Mac are the main focus of the ad. The topic of the new ad is this PCWorld article that proclaimed the Macbook Pro the fastest Windows Vista notebook ever tested. PC calls PCWorld to report a misprint about the Mac being the fastest Windows PC available. PC then impersonates Mac on the phone to try to deny that Mac is the faster Windows PC. It’s a funny ad as always. The ad is currently online at the Apple site here. Enjoy!
The Justin Long and John Hodgman series of Apple ads took their campaign from the TV to the web recently. The ad itself is actually located on two parts of the websites it has been appearing on. One piece of the ad is in the form of a horizontal banner near the top of websites. The other piece is a flash video located in the sidebar. I’ve seen the ad on Engadget, but it’s also been reported to be on News.com and PCMag.
The recent Get a Mac TV ads have focused on Windows Vista as is this web ad. The ad delivers a laughs so it’s worth watching. I’ve embedded the ad below for your viewing pleasure.
