Holiday Get a Mac ad

Apple today posted a new 'Get a Mac' TV spot on its website depicting animated characters singing 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town.' Animated versions of 'Mac' Justing Long and 'PC' John Hodgman accompany Santa Claus as they proceed to sing the classic Christmas tune. Partway through the song, however, 'PC' decides to interject his own lyrics about purchasing a PC rather than a Mac this holiday season. 'Mac' and Santa both express dissatisfaction with the lyrical changes, and Apple finishes the spot with a few snowflakes falling in front of an iMac.

Apple last Friday unveiled another 'Get a Mac' ad titled 'Now What.' That spot features Hodgman as he reveals a new book titled 'I want to buy a computer, now what?" Long seems surprised about the prospect that purchasing computers is filled with questions and choices, as 'PC' suggests. Following the introduction of his first book 'PC' produces a second companion book titled 'I just bought a computer, now what?'
