American Pie 2, Zoolander, & Teaching Mrs. Tingle

| TMO Appearances

Long-time Observer Spider dropped us a note about three movies with varying degrees of Mac sightings in them. First up is last weekendis top earner, American Pie 2 which features a beige PowerMac and a G3. He also says that a Tangerine iBook figures prominently in a trailer for Zoolander. Lastly, Spider tells us that the main character in Teaching Mrs. Tingle has an original Mac in her room. According to Spider:

Huge Mac sighting! Just got back from the movies, and away we go!

American Pie 2 - Jim (the nerdy guy) has what appears to be either a 7100, 8100, or Desktop G3 at his home, and a Grape iMac in his college dorm. The first one was also seen in the first movie.

Trailer/Teaser - Zoolander. HUGE MAC!!! A Tangerine iMac is broadcast in itis full glory during this trailer. (The moron in the movie also smashes it! grrrrr) The iMac is a major focus in the trailer. There are only about 4 scenes in the trailer where it does not appear.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle - Donit know if this was reported yet, but the main character brunette has a 1984 Mac in her room.

Thatis all for now!!
