Taking a break from being an all-around hilarious actor, Patrick Warburton (David Puddy from Seinfeld, The Tick from The Tick) appears in the newest irritating “I’m a Mac” ad, also featuring a Lauren (from Microsoft’s “Laptop Hunters” series) look-a-like.
The ad reiterates the same played-out message we’ve heard in dozens of these ads: PCs get viruses, crash, push your grandparents down the stairs, whatever, so go buy a Mac and be hip or something. Apple’s amassing a really funny cast here; even Justin Long was great in Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and tossing Patrick Warburton in there could have been a golden opportunity to be, you know, funny instead of just smug. Too bad Apple seems content to stick with the status quo. [Apple via Engadget]
