New Apple Mac Ad (iMac) ... making fun of PC + Viruses!
Did anyone else see it?
You beat me to it. I was on my way here to start a thread about it.
And yes, it was ***** hillarious!!!
Mac vs PC virus ad
Did anyone just see the Mac PC virus ad on Fox network? About how Macs have no viruses compared to PCs?
Central time -6 GMT
lol! it was so unexpected!
The ad may come back during 24! Should record it.
Good timing, I'd say.
Didn't see it, though. I think the Mac-o-lytes will start to fry Apple soon.
Well the big "deal" about this is that now that it "officially" acknowledged... we'll be proven either:
A)MacOSX is really truthfully secure like we say they are
B)crackers feel intimidated and write viruses for MacOSX
Damn... you beat me to it ! i was trying to figure out which forum to put it in and your thread popped up!
Great add though...
NOOOOO!!!!!! We just got off the inertia path and turned off the tv about five minutes earlier...(Back to back Simpsons...mmmm). Well, youtube, here I come.
Reminds me so much of the switch ads. I really hope they have another commerical talking about how great OS X is, and not just focusing on Windows is worse stuff.
Is this the 'new ad' Steve was referring to last week? I hope its on 24!!!
Hm, not on Apple.com yet. Can't wait to see it when it's online!
I need to find me a copy of this ad online...must view...
No mentioning of Apple anywhere. Only "Mac" written on the iMac screen at the end.
No one has a link yet...?
I am watching FOX just waiting to record the Ad as soon as it comes, then will encode and upload!
I missed it. When is Apple going to post it on their site?
Is it possible this commercial was released a day early and was really meant to be released tomorrow (Tues.) along with the new MacBooks?
Maybe the next ad should have Steve Jobs looking into the camera and saying "I dare anyone to write a virus for Mac OS X! In fact, I double-dare you!"
no one had a dvr going?
I'm not so sure it's wise to play the no-viruses card, especially since there was one piece of malware just a couple of months ago that a normal user would consider to be a virus.
Maybe Apple Computer is planning on loosing the lawsuit with Apple Corps and the new company name will be 'Macintosh'.
haha, that's pretty much how I read the ad.
I hope not though
That was exactly my first thought...
I was thinking the same thing. I always assumed this was why Apple never advertised not having viruses (they were afraid it would come back and bite them in the ***).
I doubt it. For Fox to air it during May sweeps during prime time, by mistake? That would mean one really unhappy airtime purchaser who didn't get an ad shown and one unhappy Apple who had an ad aired prematurely (of course, they wouldn't be too upset - especially if their ad airs at the right time tomorrow). That would not end pretty for Fox.
Just realised I had my TiVo going, and went and watched it. Pretty cool
I would put it online, but TivoToGo only works with Windows, so it'd be a hassle.
