If you were wondering when Apple would put out a television commercial to tout its new Power Mac G5, wonder no more, as it debuted last night. In the commercial, a peaceful scene is interrupted by an out-of-breath man being flung against a tree, still sitting in his chair and still clutching his mouse. The camera then cuts to the source of the manis trip, a house with a gaping hole nearly all the way through. The camera slowly moves through the path of destruction, ending up at -- you guessed it -- a Power Mac G5 sitting atop a desk. The commercial then concludes with a voiceover by Jeff Goldblum, calling it the "worldis fastest, most powerful personal computer," echoing Appleis previous G5 marketing.
The commercial does not seem to be posted on Appleis site as of this writing, but luckily some kind soul with a video capture card recorded and compressed it into MP4 format, and posted it on his or her .Mac homepage. The MP4 weighs in at 3.6MB, and requires Quicktime 6 or higher.
