Apple slams Vista, Windows PCs in three new ‘Get a Mac’ ads (with video)

Apple has begun airing three new “Get a Mac” ads on U.S. network and cable television.

In “Pizza Box,” PC stoops to disguising himself as a pizza to get college students to even look his way.

In “Throne,” PC sits atop his throne, but Mac puts a damper on his fun.

In “Calming Teas,” Windows PC offers user “calming teas” to deal with the mess that is Windows Vista.

  1. How much did they cost to make?

    How effective are they?

    M$ get your copiers running, Oh! you don’t have copiers? Then get your Vista powered scanners running then!!! Ha! ha! haaa!!!!

    CRASH!!! Another chair bites the dust!

  2. It just keeps on getting funnier and funnier. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    Just a thought. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Maybe it’s a european thing, but it seems a bit crappy, slagging off the opposition. Surely they have lots of good things to say about their own offerings? Why refer to windows at all? Pretty much any adverts will serve the purpose anyway, the products almost sell themselves. I suppose the luvvies in whatever agency it was that churned out these mindless sequences will be claiming responsibility for the success of the machines.

    MW hands, as in hands it on a plate to the ad agency. Who could fail?

  4. I like how Apple takes breaks between ad runs in order to keep them fresh. Too much and we might get tired of them. Instead it feels like they’re rolling out a new set at the perfect time.

    Between the dancing silhouettes in the iPod commercials, the working hands in the iPhone commercials and the Get a Mac spots, it’s amazing how Apple has so much contemporarily iconic advertising under its belt.
