I made a quick gif animation, as you can see the dialog isn't that structured, but I tried to make it look like the advert....

Yeh, the computer has a cold, the mac dosn't, and so forth.
I was trying to make it so the mac didn't have the bug (glitch at high hight)
and the computer did. Sorry if I failed patheticly :D

(In the British version the computer has a cold, I don't know about the American version)

There are many many many commercials in the Apple "Get A Mac" advertising campaign. See www.apple.com/getamac/ and www.apple.com/uk/getamac/ .
Perhaps you'll begin to understand what "humour" and "comedy" are if you watch them.

I have noticed that you CannonBallGuy always seem to have quite a negative mood towards PETER, I don't know if he did something to you or not, but just be nice.

Thank you CBG. This is phrased beautifully. Thank you for pointing out the humor and comedy aspects of the Mac ads. As usual, humor and comedy are not to be taken seriously. And even though I find the ads to be a tad inconclusive, I will sit back and laugh just because of their humorous appeal.

I think that at best the mac adds are "watchable".
The "humor" if you put it that way, is more of an American style.

I'm Welsh - I love the Get A Mac adverts, both US and UK versions.
Both pairs of guys have great rapport and the writers for the adverts are fantastic.

http://www.bash.org/?462310 - you don't have to use the Apple mice, you know. And even if you do, you can hold Ctrl and click.

http://www.bash.org/?763963 - though I will agree mostly, there are _some_ games on mac. We have Halo (1) ! And, uh, Age of Empires and... Chess!

This isn't fatal bumping that is years old, but it still is a three week old topic. I think we should let it rest in peace.
