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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- The ad was still funny.
