Mac banner ad tightens screws on Vista

As Apple continues to poke the festering wound that is Microsoft Vista, one of the best spots actually isn’t on TV. The new “Get a Mac” online ad offers a nice twist on multiple banners, which are usually just the same ads in different formats. It also shows Justin Long at his best—which is when he lets John Hodgman do all the talking. UPDATE: In a twist that must have Bill Gates gnawing on his glasses, the Apple banner apparently caused some browsers to crash—but that just seemed to get people to love it even more. Now that’s a company with a powerful brand.
