Does Apple secretly want us to buy PCs?

Posted on

I already like John Hodgman more than I like Justin Long, but the addition of Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld‘s David Puddy and Family Guy‘s Joe Swanson, among others) to the PC side in Apple’s latest commercial (embedded below) majorly tips the scale. It’s not like I’m about to buy a PC — as one of Apple’s most loyal customers, I possess the rare ability to see the iPhone 3GI — but I’d definitely rather hang out with the “PC personified” crowd right this second. It’s not just the commercial that has me all hot and bothered — I’ve also spent the better part of an hour listening to Warburton’s oral descriptions of specialty burgers and cheeses at the Cheese & Burger Society’s website. If PCs start coming equipped with Warburton’s lusty food descriptions as their startup tones, Apple could be gone for good.
