There have been so many great rivalries in history: Good vs. Evil, Tom vs. Jerry, George W. Bush vs. post-kindergarten reading levels. But maybe none has given us more laughs (okee, momentary giggles) during American Idol commercial breaks than PC vs. Mac.
Since 2006, the classic rivalry between the buttoned-up, overweight suit and the laid back, cool-but-I-don’t-really-care-if-I-am hipster has reinforced the stereotype that people who use PCs are dorks and people who use Macs go to the Golden Globes with Drew Barrymore.
Despite the fact that Apple hasn’t launched a new spot since before the holiday season, you can still get your fix of the classic cat and mouse duo, thanks to AdFreak’s chronicling of the 66 spots that have aired so far in the “Get a Mac” campaign.
Wow, 66 spots! Maybe if I used the time I spent watching Mac ads to earn a living, I could actually afford one!
