Today Apple started running an Awesome Ad in the New York Times on-line edition. It features the Mac & PC characters and it plays a little video. Here are some screen captures of the ad
The current ad has earned the Awesome Ad award for it's clever interaction with three parts of the New York Times.
It has a Mac customer experience review on top.
A hair loss ad off to the left and the PC & Mac Guys off to the right.
The hair loss add artistically mirrors the PC & Mac guy. A great new take on the before and much hipper after switching to a Mac. Who knows, if you switch to a Mac you may even get your hair back! The end of the commercial shows the three areas in which Apple advertised in. The Upper Banner and off the the right have the Apple Logo and the right side has a photo of an iMac.
It no longer is available for viewing on the NYTimes site, but fortunately you can watch it on YouTube:
Apple has run other Ads in the New York Times before but none have been as well crafted as the current on. Here are some of the one's from the past. Here is one from the New York Times on 1/17/2008

Until I Blog again, remember not to take life too seriously and make sure you tell someone that is close to you how much you care for them.
