Mac vs. PC Commercials
I love these commercials. The idea behind the Mac vs.
PC commercials, the “Get a Mac” advertising campaign started in 2006, is to
make PC look old and cranky and to make Mac look young, confident, and
cool. John Hodgman plays PC, while Justin Long plays Mac. You may remember Justin Long from the
Jeepers Creepers horror movie. These famous commercials have inspired spoofs, including one from Novell where Linux
was portrayed by a thin woman.
