    Two new Get a Mac ads that have not aired and do not appear on the Apple website have been posted. One shows PC hiding from viruses and spyware and telling Mac how they can sneak into your hard drive and follow you home. It ends with PC leaving to run a scan. The second one shows PC knocking against the wall trying to leave because he upgraded to Vista and needs new drivers. The videos can be seen on YouTube in the following links: "Viruses & Spyware and "Vista Nightmares".

    New TV ad

    Just saw a new TV ad on CNN where PC is trying to knock his way out of the shot, like the side of the frame is a box he keeps jumping against. When he finally gets through, he just pops back in on the other side. I don't see it on the Apple site.

    The ad's been kicking around on the tubes for a while:

    Link.

    I. Totally. Don't. Get it.

    I feel the same way.

    That's gotta be bad. If an Apple fan doesn't get it, how the hell are other people gonna understand? I think this one should be removed.

    If it messes with people, so much the better that Apple keeps running the ad!

    I think what bugs me about it is the lurking sense of "miming" ...

    I think it's funny. He's just wiggin' out because Vista is such a pain, and even his own OS can't get beyond its own firewall to find the right drivers. And, when he does get out, he just ends up back where he started.

    Well, I think they should add that explanation to the ad.
    I didn't get it either...

    Btw., here's another one :D
