Hello, I'm a Mac

If you ever turn on your tv for any amount of time, you're bound to be familiar with Apple's current ad campaign. You know how it goes... "Hello, I'm a Mac. And I'm a PC." And that really cute guy from Live Free or Die Hard is the Mac. Yeah, you know who I mean.

Anyways, has anyone else seen their special Christmas edition? I love it! It's animated in much the same claymation way as Christmas classics we've grown up with like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. The two animated guys (Mac and PC) are Christmas caroling when the PC changes the song lyrics to "Buy a PC and not a Mac this holiday season or any other season for goodness sake."

I laughed so hard. I was already a fan of these commercials and have definitely thought it was a smart idea on behalf of Apple, but this one set the bar even higher for advertising. So many commercials are just plain lame. Apple is really on to something here. So clever...
