Justin Long: ‘Get a Mac’ Campaign May be Over

By Matt Van Hoven 

One of the best known campaigns of our generation may be coming to a close, according to actor Justin Long who plays “Mac” in the Media Arts Lab campaign. During an interview with A.V. Club, he said the campaign may be soon over.

“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.”

We put a note in TBWA’s inbox, but don’t expect an answer. So, please let us know. Could it be that when the campaign’s creator Barton Corley left for 72andSunny, he took all the good scripts with him?
