I’m a Mac and I’m also a tosser

I can’t stand the smugness of those Get a Mac adverts with Mitchell and Webb in them. I especially hate the one that says Macs never crash. That’s just bullshit. I’m sure OS X is better, but the last Mac I used crashed all the time. As for this PC with Windows XP — for all its faults — it crashes far, far less often.

It’s like when Labour blame the state of the NHS on the Conservatives. Maybe that was so ten years ago…

Mitchell and Webb Mac ads Anyway, I saw this banner ad on Comment is Free and I can’t help but wonder if these adverts are really sending out the right message. I mean, if you were undecided between purchasing a Mac and a PC, would this advert really sway you?

I mean, surely if you wanted fun you’d just buy a Wii wouldn’t you? Moreover, this makes ‘Mac’ look like one of those awful people that go around the place telling everybody how fun they are.

With these adverts, David Letterman got it right.
