“Get a Mac” ads evolving

Three new Apple ads recently broke. “Angel/Devil” is probably the least entertaining and does the least to highlight the Mac’s advantages. At this point, the commercials are starting to portray a kind of “Abbott and Costello” vibe with the PC character becoming less corporate and geeky and now just plain comically silly. This may be in response to more people identifying with and liking John Hodgman’s character. This is especially true in “Trust Mac,” in which Hodgman’s incognito antics are so silly that Justin Long cannot keep a straight face through the commercial.
