Justin Long reports on his website that he is, in fact, still the “Get a Mac” guy…and is even shooting some holiday themed commercials tomorrow (or maybe today, the post was from 6:40 am this morning)…perhaps the report was a hoax trying to make him seem like even more of a “jerk” than some people already seem to think he is?
I don’t know…personally, I don’t think he comes off as smug or pompous.Â I think the “Get a Mac” ads are funny and entertaining, and I hope that last at least through Macworld ’07.
If you don’t want to read Justin’s entire post here is the “Mac” guy focused portion in it’s entirety:
… as for the mac commercials, i don’t know where that report came from that said i wasn’t going to do anymore – i literally setting my alarm right now to wake up for a mac shoot tomorrow – if i’m not doing anymore i guess i can sleep in on my day off – that’d be nice. but yeah, we’re doing some holiday spots now which i think will be pretty funny – not nearly funny enough to justifiy the money they’re paying me though, i’ll be honest with you. as for the future, i really don’t know what i’m going to do – i’m surprised, frankly, that the campaign hasn’t become tired and they’ve just ended it on their own – but i try to live as much in the present as i can considering the future doesn’t exist, i’m not really sure. they’re easy to do, i love john (the pc guy) and working with him is so effortless and fun that i definitely wouldn’t rule out doing some more – and, as i said, they pay us nicely.
