Meet Linux: The worst ever spoof of an Apple ad – by Novell?

by Bharat Suneja

Just came across Novell’s Meet Linux ads – the worst ever spoof of Apple’s brilliant “Hi I’m a Mac… ” commercials. The production quality is poor, and the execution amateurish, imo. These look more like a a clip on YouTube put together by a bunch of teenagers with a camcorder, (and it probably is for all we know :) . Watch them on

Hey Novell, wasn’t the Apple, Mac and a pretty young thing concept already taken – by Apple itself? Apple’s ‘Better Results‘ ad features Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, is better executed, amusing, and consistent with Apple’s style.

You can find a whole bunch of “I’m a Mac” spoofs on YouTube – some of them are quite funny. If that’s where Novell picked up its MeetLinux ads from, it could have certainly done a better job.
