Re: I'm a Mac. I'm a PC
That's interesting. Maybe you were not paying attention? Or, maybe during the commercials you made a quick trip to the fridge/kitchen for some snacks? That's the most logical explanation, I would say. :)
I don't watch TV. Yet, you can always find everything online. I don't remember how I came across the first I'm a Mac, I'm a PC ad. After that, I watched them all on YouTube; several times.
Yes, they are cleaver. And funny. It's a great combination. It has always been quite hard to find good commercials on television. You are usually forced to watch 20 minutes of commercials per hour, or 10 minutes during a "30-minute" show. When I did the math, I came up to the conclusion that I was wasting an incredible amount of time doing anything productive, not even getting entertained because what I had chosen to watch was interrupted constantly by those moments of nothing. I decided to get rid of the television. I have filled my free time with much more interesting things to do.
But, the Buy a Mac campaign would have been the one thing that would have kept me watching during commercials.
