Nice find! That one is deffinately new, I'm glad that Apple didn't just make a couple and run them a bunch of times. It shows that there are more Mac users than people think.

Man, that one got on the air quick! I just saw it air during "ER". I think I've only seen 5 different people. I've yet to see any of the celebrity ones air in my area.

I see Tony Hawk all the time on Sundays (football). Other than that, I haven't seen the other two guys yet.

back in NYC!
I always see the 'Christmas' lady. She has the best one I think.
It is the kind of ad that would make me want to switch. If I was
an avid Tony Hawk fan, then I would probably switch too, but
that is just because he is a celebrity. The lady who saved christmas
had a good story, with a good 'punchline' at the end.

(Her name is Janie Porshe btw [I think])

The best one yet!

IMHO, this is the best ad so far. I when Miss Porche came out I was most impressed and I would put the two at the same level.

What is it that I like? Genuineness. The most real, most convincing, most connected of the switch ads are those in which the speakers come across as the authors of the material (which, as I understand, is true of all of these ads). My point is that some of them look coached; but, some of these folks really come across as being genuine. I like that.

Oh, and here in Korea, we don't see those ads on TV. It's a shame that the ads are mostly shown in places where Apple already sells a lot of computers. Many people here in Korea know of MacIntosh computers, and they have the same stigmas (no programs, only for graphic designers, blah, blah, it's not Window$, blah, blah) - some, in fact, any advertising would be welcome.
