Apple Jingles in with Holiday Get a Mac Ad

Apple Jingles in with Holiday Get a Mac Ad

by , 5:40 PM EST, December 13th, 2007

Apple is getting in the holiday spirit with its latest Get a Mac ad. Like the other commercials in the successful series, this one features John Hodgman as PC and Justin Long as Mac -- at least in voice.


He sees you when you are in sleep mode.

The "Santa Claus" Get a Mac ad takes on a more retro look thanks to its late 60's Rankin and Bass animated holiday special style. The only thing missing from this commercial are the misfit toys singing backup for Santa, Mac, and PC.

"Santa Claus" can be viewed in QuickTime format at the Apple Web site.
