    My favourite UK get a Mac ad is the Pie Charts one. I love the "Shenanigans" and "Hi-jinks" :-)

    Lazy though

    I'd imagine they'd do more than just copy over the same scripts changing the odd word here and there. We're not just Americans with a funny accent you know.

    re: Lazy though

    Why would they need to change it a lot?

    The facts are presented with a couple of humourus comments.

    It just works.

    freakin' hilarious

    there was just enough subtle differences [like in the pie-chart ad] to set them off_ Even a couple that mostly had a different accent made it "new" again_

    watch the japanese and german versions_
