“I wasn’t able to get the videos themselves, but some great screen shots of 3 upcoming ads in Apple’s ‘Get a Mac’ campaign,” Nick Starr reports.
Starr reports, “One of the ads even features a cross-dresser. There was no volume so I wasn’t able to hear what was being said, but I think there was a mention to a girlfriend.”
“The second one features the ‘Mac guy’ in a suit. The PC ends up on the floor in this one,” Starr reports. “Last, there seems to be some anomisity [sic] between the two and they go to therapy to resolve their issues.”
“I’m sure these ads will be out soon,” Starr writes.

Not that Starr is wrong, but the possibility does exist that Apple has some ads designed to run only in Apple Retail Stores and not on television. Now, because we’ve written that, Apple will probably post these ads online via QuickTime this afternoon and start airing them nationwide on the major U.S. TV networks tonight.
We believe that’s Gisele Bündchen playing the Mac’s girlfriend (possibly as the embodiment of Mac OS X vs. the disgustingly bad imitation that is Windows, as “Andy C.” theorizes below). Back in May, Brazilian-model Bündchen reported via her official website that she had “recently posed for Apple Computer, Inc. to represent their Macintosh computer line,” so that report would now make sense if that is indeed Ms. Bündchen seen in the video stills.
