Sony spoofs Mac campaign to odd effect

Over the weekend, a bunch of blogs picked up on this Flash ad for the Sony Vaio C Series which spoofs the “Get a Mac” campaign. (The computer’s official positioning is the non-PC PC.) To the extent that any campaign is isolated to a single country these days, we’ve only found it on the home page for Sony Vaio in Australia. As TUAW points out, the ad is a little strange, since all that happens when you interact with it is that the characters make sound effects. The PC actually farts, the Mac shouts “Hey” and the Vaio, portrayed by what I’ll describe as a fun-loving woman, laughs like a party girl. Whatever.
