Apple posts two new ‘Get a Mac’ ads

Apple has begun airing two new Mac ads as part of the company’s “Get a Mac” campaign.

One ad, “Flashback,” features “PC” John Hodgman and “Mac” Justin Long remembering old times. Some things never change and we get to see “Mac” and “PC” as kids:

The other ad, “Computer Cart,” features “PC” on a cart bound for IT along with three other “PCs.” “PC” Hodgman is in DLL Hell while the others have various cryptic errors. “Mac,” as usual, commiserates with the always-present unspoken undertone “Get a Mac” lingering throughout:

For better quality, see the new ads, available in four sizes/qualities ranging from “Small” to “HD” via here.


  1. Many people were critical of the “Get a Mac” ads when they first began airing, but the series (and it’s stars) have become icons in the public consciousness, which doesn’t happen every day. Way to go, Apple!

  2. “”PC” on a cart” is f-u-n-n-y! Another winner.
    PC Security is still the best one.

    Some people here may not like the music or may be getting tired of the theme, but these ads are sticking in peoples heads when they need a new computer.

    It works! -just like the mac. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Flashback tells me that Micro$haft has not changed since day. Take a closer look. When they were young, the youn PC pulls out a calculator to figure out how much time they lost. Going back to the present, the adult pc does the same thing…sort of what Micro$haft is doing now. This is saying that MS can’t do anything original. It keeps repeating itself. Take a look at their OS from 3.1 to vista. What original piece of innovation have they done? You know the answer to that question. Now, take a look at the Mac side. The rest, as they say, is history…
