John Hodgeman, known as "PC" to viewers of Apple's Get a Mac ads, was viewed to have an iPhone on Wednesday's Daily Show with John Stewart (iTunes link).

Perhaps to add to the irony and humor, Hodgeman then used the iPhone upside down when he seemingly answered a call.

In real life John Hodgeman is a professed Mac user, however TV depictions of him using Apple products can be humorous.

John Hodgeman is one of the funniest guys out there today. Love his work in the ads and his other work in general (especially his appearances on This American Life).

We know the PC is no stranger to apple products, in one of the first commercials we saw that he has an iPod too.

Funny thing is, the guy that plays "the Mac" (can't remember his name) in the commercials knows absolutely nothing about Macs. or computers.
I saw him on an interview with Leno talking about "Live Free or Die Hard" and he said it was very fun to do the ads even though he had no clue how to use a Mac.

seems that hes taking the whole role in stride, and having a good time with it overall, which is nice.

Don't believe everything a comic says:

oh snap!!! I recognized this guy immediately as a regular on Jon Stewart's show, but I didn't realize he was also the PC guy in the Mac commercials.

wonder if mac uses a pc?

No mac uses a mac too, though I should point out that before those commercials he used neither and when I say that I don't mean he used linux I mean he didn't use computers full stop.
I think the work on the commercials made him decide to try using one and well he's mac so why not get a mac.
