For those who love Apple’s “Get a Mac” campaign, the people working at AdWeek’s AdFreak blog have set up
a place where all 66 “Get a Mac” ads can be watched with just as many clicks. The ads are organized by year in four columns, while each and every video comes with a small summary on behalf of AdWeek.
Spanning four years of John Hodgman and Justing Long goodness, the commercials are well known for featuring two distinct characters, one portraying PC (Windows), the other, Mac
The move doesn’t come as a surprise, with AdWeek naming the “Get a Mac” series of ads the “Campaign of the Decade
,” this past December. Entitled “Apple and TBWA’s Get a Mac: The Complete Campaign,” the page looks like a calendar in miniature. Four columns have been set in place, each holding the exact number of “Get a Mac” ads Apple aired that year. Whether you’re a longtime fan just wanting to reminisce, or a newcomer trying to catch up with the campaign, your search is over.
“We know how you love Apple's 'Get a Mac' ads with John Hodgman and Justin Long. So, here are all 66 TV spots (plus the 90-second extended version of 2008's musical ad 'Sad Song') that have aired since the campaign, created by TBWA Media Arts Lab, launched on May 2, 2006,” a post on AdWeek reads.
“The success of Microsoft's Windows 7 raises questions about the viability of 'Get a Mac' going forward. (The three October 2009 spots, slamming Windows 7, look a little goofy now, and Apple skipped doing holiday spots for the first time in four years.),” AdWeek adds. “Have we seen the last of Mac and PC? We'll see. For now, click on the thumbnails below, and enjoy the work from the past four years,” the post ends.
