Cheeky Mac Banner Ad

Captured on YouTube: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRAUlK8_2VE

Note that I say this as a long-term Mac user:

  1. It is a very bad idea to advertise yourself by saying how bad your competitor's product is. People don't buy something just because an unrelated product is shit.
  2. It is especially pointless since the Mac platform doesn't directly compete with Vista - they even advertise the fact that you can run Vista on a Mac as a selling point.
  3. Leopard could have been a lot better - they really dropped the ball on that one, promising a lot and delivering very little (at least from a consumer standpoint).
  4. The ad was still funny.
