Mac and PC

Okay, so if the last post garnered some critique, who knows what will happen on this one?

Apple has come out with a new Mac vs. PC campaign, which features some very cute ads. The ads are cute because they anthropomorphize the platforms (I think of Robb’s blog when I use that big word), and because Justin Long is cute.

I really like the Restarting one and the Networking one.

So maybe because there’s no artistic pretension here, John will be okay with these ads. Though he does use a PC, so maybe he’ll just find them vapid. (I love that word, BTW.) Perhaps it’s too close to the old Switch campaign that didn’t work so well and was considered… vapid! Oh, who knows?

Go watch them, and have some fun!
