    There are quite a few of them... Will Ferrel, QBert, and now Tony Hawk. I wonder when the Shaq switch comercial... I can see it now, camera pans up to show shaq rocking on his iPod. "I love my iPod so much I made the whole team buy their own."



    Just my $.02 or half a nibble,

    Maybe it's just the lower resolution of the video there but Tony Hawk seemed like he was half asleep and trying to think of things to say. The way he said"I'm Tony Hawk and I'm a professional skateboarder." at the end was pretty lackluster.

    I can't see it. It just won't download. Anyone want to host it?

    Nice. I like the new commercials. They're expanding to iPods, iPhoto and stuff.



    Saw the first real "Switch" copy cat ad...Hershey chocolates now has block shots of people standing in white space spouting their testimonials to the candy... <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />



    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

    I don't like it.

    He doesn't SAY anything. During those clips of the skateboards he should still be talking. And what's up with this that he says in the end:

    "If you know how you use a computer, you can use a mac." What the hell does that mean?! So if i can use any computer I can use a mac? well isn't the whole point that you don't have to know how to use a computer prior to using a mac?

    Yeah, he was pretty lackluster. Odd considering what a fervent Machead he is.



    Now if only Apple could persuade Trent Reznor to do one ...

    I love that I live in a country where a skateboarder is a hero to a generation.





    Don't mind me. I'm just getting old.

    If someone wants to send it to me, I could at least temporarily host it on my T3... AIM: ericj551

    Very, very lame. Lameness Inc. Lame'r Us. We are only in it for the money. That's 2.9 MB NOT well spent. Jeez.

    Does anyone have a link to this other than the birdhouse one? They made him take it down. It was too early apparently. =) Thanks.

    I saw it on TV today, it was unintentionally hillarious.



    Still like Ellen Fiess' better.

    The Tony Hawk ad is up, along with DJ Qbert and Kelly Slater.

    There are also two new non-celebrity ads. Gianni Jacklone is very effective IMO.
