Culture: Justin “Mac” Long: Apple could be ready to quit “I’m a Mac”

  • 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.
  • Justin “I’m a Mac” Long • In an interview with The Onion A.V. Club, where he notes the popular Mac vs. PC ads he does with John Hodgman might be kaput. This would be really sad, because the ads are some of the industry’s best and most consistently clever. The rest of the article is fairly compelling beyond that bombshell, including Long discussing his various voice-acting roles. Apparently he knows how to do a ’90s stoner voice really well. source
