New 'Get A Mac' Ads Released

https://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogodarkd.png

Apple has finally released via the 'Get A Mac' website the three ads that have been curiously making the rounds on Canadian TV and some Apple Stores. The ads are as follows:

1. Counselor
2. Better Results (guest-starring Gisele Bündchen)
3. Self Pity

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen's involvement had been rumored since May, when her official website reported that she had been photographed for an ad campaign concerning the Mac.

I've seen the counselor ad on tv, and I loved it, so I'm glad that I now get to take a gander at the others!

Edit: The link isn't working for me right now... boo.

We dont want ads, we want C2D MBPs NOW!!!. Sheesh!

Although Ad 2 was easily the best ad ever "wassup, PC Home Movie". Classic.

I like "Self Pity" because the others are push Macs are good for creative stuff, an that one talk about how they are just as good for things like Exel and Word

I've hated these ads since the beginning and the news ones don't do anything to help. Apple could convey the same message more effectively by pushing by just showing the advantages of the Mac and they wouldn't look like a bunch of arrogant jerks going it. That being said, Gisele Bündchen needs to be in more ads.

Okay, don't take this as me bashing other cultures, but couldn't they have found an attractive model who could've said, "Hi, I'm a Mac home movie" in a fashion that was easier to understand?

I mean, someone might take that as "uh oh... my Mac home Movie is going to have an accent!"

...okay not really. I just had to listen to it a couple times to figure out what she was actually saying... and not to gawk. Not at all.
