    I've been meaning to start a thread asking this for ages, so forgive me if it's not quite as timely a topic as it was in the past, but if you were to write one of Apple's "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" ads, what would you do?

    Surely, all the good ideas can't have been filmed already...?

    how about:

    "I'm a Mac, and I like my sh*t to NOT break"

    "Good evening. I'm a Mac, and you're not."

    Apple's already got some good ones.. and you need John Hodgeman to deliver the line perfectly to bring home the desired effect.

    One where they both just kick back at a bar having a good time, swapping anecdotes freely between each other with no compatability issues.

    In response to PC snoring and drooling...
    Mac says, "stop lagging on me! Since I'm a Mac I don't lag as often as PC here."

    That's all I can come up with right now.

    My advert

    "Hey PC, saw your new adverts, really nice."

    "Thanks, Mac, did you see Eva? She's a PC you know."

    "Oh, I thought we were personifications of computers, not users defining ourselves by the computer we use."

    "Well, our marketing department didn't really get that difference. They were too busy trying to show how PCs are better to the tech savvy Mac guys that actually made the adverts."

    "Oh, OK."

    "Anyway Eva uses a PC, that's all that matters."

    "Oh really? What about that MacBook she was caring at the airport that everyone's talked about online?"

    "Err, she was just acting. It was a TV show, she had to carry it to make the show look 'with it'. Oh damn it! I give up. Eva's a Mac."

    Here's another one. "Yeah we did that... 8 years ago."

    PC, "Hey Mac, did you see our new advertisements for Windows 7?"

    Mac, "Yeah, I did, I like the whole dock thing embedded into the taskbar."

    PC, "Why thank you Mac. It is now easier to use the taskbar and launch programs from it."

    Mac, "Very interesting. Although, Mac's have had a dock since OS X was released 8 years ago."

    PC, "Ugh, we'll never be better than you."

    Mac, "Well at least Windows 7 is now what Vista was supposed to be."

    PC, "Ugh, we'll never be better than you."

    Mac, "PC, I think you said that already."

    PC, "Ugh, we'll never be better than you."

    Mac, "Are you ok?"

    PC, [​IMG]

    Mac, "Not again. Will somebody please reinstall his OS."


    :apple:


    Lol. Nice one.

    "What "I'm a Mac" ad would you come up with yourself?"

    I couldn't, as I don't spew BS as a rule.

    "Hello. I'm a Mac. And while you might think I'm just a trendy, smug, arrogant, annoying, stereotype - today I'm going to break with tradition AND ACTUALLY SHOW YOU SOME OF THE FRICKIN' BENEFITS OF OSX"

    I can dream.

    I'd rather spew bullsh*t than cynicism, but that's just me. :D

    ...set to some very tasteful stripper music I'd add. I think we're on to something here!

    I have a feeling this is going to turn into a converstation like "Apple should make adult films."

    It was my hidden agenda from the very beginning.

    Mac is not that kind of girl. Boy. That kind of boy. I mean man. I mean Justin. It would be PC who would be the one to try that. I envision the script thus:


    (PC appears from the left, wearing nothing but red tassel pasties and skimpy underwear, carrying a feather boa)

    Mac: "Hi. I'm a Mac."

    PC: "And I'm a PC."

    Mac: "Gee, PC, what's with the pasties and red boa?"

    PC: "Oh, this is just my way of attracting young, college-age men. You're popular on campuses & with educational types and just posted record profits last quarter so I've been forced to adopt a more classy, clean, wholesome look to compete."

    Mac: "Yeah, I saw all the new features in Windows 7. Way to go, buddy. Your new Dock looks nice too. I mean new Taskbar."

    PC: "Why thank you, Mac. I figured I had to borrow some of your eye-candy if I wanted to stay competitive."

    (PC starts to use the feather boa as a jump rope)

    Mac: "um, PC, I don't think you're using that the right way..."

    Is it disturbing that I think this wold honestly make a good ad?

    It would have to be cable-only, and aired during specific time slots, but still...
