Funny: The untold history of Apple’s Get a Mac campaign (audio)

“As we went through script after script, Steve kept saying, “That’s f__ing stupid. That is so inane. Who the hell cares about that?” — Creative director Jason Sperling

To mark the 10-year anniversary of Apple’s Get a Mac ads, Campaign US asked members of the creative team, the crew and the actors to talk about how the award-winning series came to life. 

The untold back stories are cool—especially the bits about dealing with Steve Jobs. But for anyone who loved the ads, the 50-minute podcast with actors John Hodgman (PC) and Justin Long (Mac) is priceless.

    I loved those ads as much as Think Different. Chiat Day really outdid themselves with both series

    Apple took more time developing that Mac commercial than Samsung required to copy the first iPhone.
