Multiple Canadian readers are reporting seeing at least two new Apple "Get a Mac" ads on Canadian TV. The ads have not appeared on Apple's Get A Mac website, but from the accounts appear to be the same ads that were previously spotted in a Tampa Bay Apple Store earlier this month. Readers report the following additional information on the ads:

In one ad, Gisele Bündchen reportedly represents a beautiful movie made on a Mac (iMovie), while the PC (with some proding) shows his movie which is an unkempt, hairy man dressed like Gisele.

In another ad aimed to demonstrate the Mac's capability in the office, both Mac and PC are wearing suits (although the Mac's suit is described as a "fairly good looking hip" suit). The PC ends up on the floor in this ad, and reportedly says something along the lines of "just let me lie here and depreciate".

A third ad seen by the Tampa Bay spotter has not yet been reported by Canadian TV watchers, but reportedly depicts the Mac and PC in a counseling session.

I have seen this one in Canada. It was on CTV. The Counsellor advises both the Mac and PC come in twice a week. :)

Let's see them!

I love how these adds are becoming rather iconic and seem to be taking on a life of their own.

Mac guy is now a "good hacker" in new DIE HARD film with Bruce Willis

Our beloved "Mac guy" (Justin Long) featured in these Apple "Get A Mac" ads has just today been announced to play John McClane's (Bruce Willis) co-star as a "good computer hacker" in the new Die Hard 4 film called "Live Free or Die Hard". I wonder how playing a computer hacker in this new Die Hard action film about terrorists using the Internet to attack America will affect Justin's image as the Mac spokesman in the Apple ads. Do you think Steve Jobs is happy that our "Mac guy" is playing a "good hacker" that helps to save America from Internet terrorists?

Maybe Apple Macs will be featured prominantly used by the "good guys" (Justin Long and Bruce Willis) in the new film and Dell PCs will be featured used by the "bad terrorist hackers" Maggie Q and her villain boss Adrien Brody in the film -- one can only hope.

For more info about Justin "Mac" Long officially receiving the nod to co-star with Brice Willis in the new Die Hard sequel, see the article "Mac Computer and Maggie Q for Die Hard 4" at:

I saw the iMovie ad and the one with both of them in suits. I think the iMove one was pretty funny, when the guy comes on screen representing the PC movie his expression is just perfect. He looks like one of the grips for the commercial who lost a bet and had to appear in a dress on screen. :D

I would comment about the stereotypical remarks made about us here above the 49th, but I have to go see the RCMP about a ticket I got in July; I was driving my dog sled too fast through a moose crossing near Dundas square on the way back to my igloo.
:cool: :D

Ads

I have been a macrumors user for a long time and really appreciate their hard work. However, I am going to stop surfing to macrumors.com if they keep putting those lame ads that stick to my screen on their site ... I DON'T WANT TO FILL OUT THE STUPID SURVEY!!!!

Just a rant from someone who has had enough :)

That's OK mate, now if you'll excuse me I have to see the cops here after they pulled me over for drinking whilst riding in the pouch of my kangaroo to get back to my lean-to before the sun came up and everything caught on fire again.

I hate it when that happens! :mad:

And to get back to the topic of this thread, does anybody have a recording of the commercial to put up for those curious folks outside of Canada?


When I saw the commercials I didn't realize that they weren't in international rotation....this makes me wonder if there are other new ads that will play in other countries?

Canada, eh?
I haven't been watching much TV lately so I haven't seen the new commercials yet either. An online link would be nice.

(MY igloo is well away from moose crossings. Nyah. :p Just bring good snowshoes before you come over, eh? Snow's been particularly bad this August.)

"depreciate" or "depricate?" I guess it works either way...
