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

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 7:56 AM
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 novell.com.

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.
