There been a bit of buzz today about this “leaked” Get A Mac ad from Apple. The “Get A Mac” campaign has been very popular and has entertained even technopobes like my mother and it is easy to understand why people would get a bit excited about a “lost episode.”
This little gem depicts PC getting an upgrade from an IT guy who tapes a webcam to the PC’s head. While the PC boasts to the Mac of his ability to technological advancement, the IT guy jumps in an explains that iMacs and MacBooks come with webcams build in.
Far from the lost or forbidden Get A Mac ad the internet buzz has made it out to be, this ad has actually been published as a video ad on many prominent tech sites. See here a screen capture of the ad in place on a Wired page (refresh a few times, it will comes up). You will see it has the same “replay/watch all the ads/send to a friend” graphic at the end of the ad as shown in the “leaked” ad video.
