Yesterday was a sad day indeed for Apple geeks. Apple ended its amusing ad campaign of “Get a Mac” ads featuring two actors representing Mac and PC computers. Not only has Apple ended this specific ad campaign, it has removed all the ads from its website and replaced them with the rather ordinary and even boring “Why You’ll Love a Mac” section.
Justin Long, the actor who played the Mac character in the ads, let it slip last month that Apple was going to end the “Get a Mac” ad campaign. Still, the end of the campaign seems a bit sad to us Apple fans and the removal of the ads from Apple’s website really drives home the point that it’s over.
I know some people did not like the “Get a Mac” ads (I saw them described as “snarky” somewhere) but I thought they were quite funny and clever. I will miss the “Get a Mac” ads.
