    Apple has posted yet another new celebrity "Switch" commercial, this time featuring the popular music group De La Soul. In the ad, they say that they've created a lot of their songs a Mac, and declare that the Mac is "a great brain."

    I was wondering when they were going to appeal to the hiphop crowd.

    There getting a really nice selection of celebs - but I think they should do some more along the lines of Will Ferrell. Maybe they'll get Bradshaw and company to do one for a SuperBowl spot - that would be damn funny. ;)

    I just finished downloading it.

    One thing I've noticed about all these celebrity ads is they're not really 'switch' ads, like they don't tell a little story about why they're currently using a Mac vs. a PC, they just say why they're using Macs without mentioning the PC at all.

    Some food for thought.

    My favorite part was that the silly "switch tune" was missing. Ahh I can hear again!

    Cheers!

    Okay, you need to target everyone with a switch commercial:

    Kids- some music celeb (or teens)
    Men- someone very popular and prominent- (no idea who)
    Women- OPRAH@!
    Older people-- stars from their time.

    And don't forget about the pop music crowd. Use Britney for that. ;) Hope she uses a Mac. :rolleyes:

    It would be funny if she were singing to the iMac:

    "Oh baby, baby, the reason I breathe is u!" and point at it, and it nods it's lamp head! I luv the iMac, b/c it's kinda humanlike

    It would be cool if britney spears did a switch and did the exact
    same dance from her 'stronger' music video, but instead of using
    a chair, she used the new g4 iMac. That would be... interesting.

    Gee, glad they're only hiring the big names!

    I know I have heard of them. Not sure why and from when. 1993 maybe?

    Now if only they could hire Jeff Goldblum. That would sure draw the big crowds!
