Apple usually does well in advertising, but...

Please let this campaign be better than that ridiculous Nikon one with Kate Moss I kept seeing at the theaters this weekend.

White background with Apple logo for 27 seconds. Then:

Gisele: "Hello... I'm a Mac."
Roseanne: "Hey! I'm a PC."

Show iMac photo, and done.

I fail to see how beauty and selling your body for a living can be considered achievements.

Photography is selling your body? I dont think photography is the worlds oldest occupation.

25 seconds of her in lingerie followed by the words "Buy a Mac" on a white background for 5 seconds.

Pure genius.

you made me laugh out loud.
thanks for that.

I don't see apple doing an ad with such a high profil model.

How can they make it original without ending up with a :
"Gisele ad" that has a mac in it
instead of a
"Mac ad" that has Gisele in it.

Yea. That should do the trick to get 10% market share. :D

Remember when Steve unveiled the TiBook? "Where's the sex?" :p
Hope that's not the new slogan... "Where's the sex" showing a PC and then "There it is:" and a picture of a Mac between Giseles's b**bs...

So this ad will be targeted towards nerds then? ;)

I actually don't think she's all that hot. :/ Pretty, I'll give you that, but Most beautiful in the world?? I dunno.

Then again, I usually don't like supermodels. I go more for the real-life girls, rather than completely fake kind. ;)

I think I see Apple's point of view. Macs are so easy to use that even supermodels can use them. :D

Am I the only straight guy here that thinks she looks like a man? :p

They should have used the female equivalent of the 'Mac' from the new ads. I'm picturing Natalie Portman's character from 'Garden State'.

Or better yet, just kept the 'Japanese Camera' lady from the earlier ads. :D

LOL :p Now that would be a great commercial!

Too bad Apple won't play like that cause it would totally match their culture's view of great advertising.

Roseanne.... "Hey!" (haha, I love it!)

Apple does try to present the Mac as a computer with good style and looks, so perhaps using supermodels to advertise their Mac models makes sense. But is Bündchen really a Mac user?

Hahaha. That's brilliant, I love it!

Hmmm. 16 positive votes and 2 negative. Who are the 2 and why would they vote negative to Gisele?

Oh, pick me, pick me, I know! :eek:

You'll have Giselle pose and after 10 seconds the pictures zooms out and you see the the whole thing on the screen of the new VTSViPod(wide touch screen video iPod). This would be simplistic enough for a Mac ad. Kinda like a tribute to the iPod 5G with U2 ad that also had something similar.
