UK Mac vs PC Ads Even Less Palatable than US Variations


Update. We're not too keen on the UK variations on Apple's Mac vs PC campaign, but user comments suggest they're really rather awesome in a UK kind of way.

Guess you have to be there. On this side of the pond, however, the variations really make you appreciate the kind, if condescending, chemistry between Justin Long and that-other-guy.

The ads feature actors Mitchell and Webb of a sitcom called Peepshow, whose vibe can perhaps be most easily compared to Larry David's painfully awkward Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The guys in the UK campaign are Mitchell & Webb, stars of brilliant uncomfortable-funny sitcom 'Peepshow'
Their chemistry and personalities work brilliantly in a UK context and they're perfect for this campaign.

I agree with the above comment. They work perfectly well in the UK. The Austin Powers comment is ridiculous, did you just say the first British production that came to mind?

Besides that, a decent blog.

Well, in that case, we'll roll with it.
