Say Goodbye to the "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" Ads!

Let's all take a moment to mourn the loss of Apple's snotty "I'm a Mac/I'm a PC" commercials. Justin Long, the Mac half of the commercials, has said that he's pretty sure there won't be anymore of the ads.

In an interview with AV Club, Long was asked, "What's the status of those Apple commercials?"

Justin responded:

"You know, I think they might be done. In fact, I heard from John, I think they’re going to move on. I can’t say definitively, which is sad, because not only am I going to miss doing them, but also working with John. I’ve become very close with him, and he’s one of my dearest, greatest friends. It was so much fun to go do that job, because there’s not a lot to it for me. A lot of it is just keeping myself entertained between takes, and there’s no one I’d rather do it with than John."

There's been no official word on whether or not Apple is axing the spots. They could just be getting rid of the actors and going for some new talent. Any suggestions?

    Well It'd be nice if they scrap it and stop lying/twisting the truth about PC's.

    Here's a suggestion, actually advertise a product, not a company.

    John Hodgeman isn't all that funny outside of these adds (if you can ignore the lack of reality in them) and I just hope this doesn't leave him more time to appear on The Daily Show. He is the only one on TDS whose bits I fast forward through.

    Great news! Those commercials are responsible for my 100% Apple ban. Now if Apple EVER creates a product I want... there's a 20% chance I'll purchase it.

    I'm sorry, but after watching that PS3 vs Wii Youtube video, I just forgot all about the above article I read seconds before hand. What I wouldn't do with that blonde! She is so f******* hot! I'd handle her every day and night, even more so than the Wii Console. Hehe. :-)
