    To be fair, the Japan site had 10 ads and the UK site has 15.

    We have the US ads here, the only difference is that they say apple.co.nz instead of apple.com

    I think some of the Japan ads are among the best. I also love "naughty step". :D

    New Zealand isn't overly English, so why would they have UK-centric ads compared to the much more global US-versions..?

    Can you imagine a localized-NZ version of the ads, wow that'd be good :p

    I don't understand Japanese but the iMovie one was still funny :)
    Can you explain what was happening in the second half of the Office one?

    Just put some sheep on the PC side.

    Link?

    I am learning... can pick up some words, but the majority of my translation is done through context. :eek:

    My favorite one is this one, in which PC asks mac to list the steps to do something on a Mac (as near as I can tell.) Mac has to really think hard for a third step, and then PC asks for step four. "No step four, Mac's done" (or something like that)
    PC gets upset. Mac quickly comes up with step four: "Get coffee"
    PC is happy. :D

    I also like this.

    Mac asks what's up with PC. Pc responds that he is wearing armor to stop spyware. Mac's don't need to worry about that/no viruses.
    Something is said that makes PC say that he is ready for any virus attack...
    Mac looks around... "there's one"
    The rest needs no translation. :)

    My best guess is they're doing the same thing that UK is...

    The UK ones are awful. Most of the problem is the casting.
    Don't get me wrong, I love Mitchell and Webb, Peep show is one of the best comedies around at the moment. But they are totally wrong for the Mac vs PC ads. For a start, people dislike Mitchell's (Mac) character (in peep show, is creepy and quite nasty) and sympathise with Webb's (PC) character, which translates . A bit lacking in research there from Apple..
