Mr. PC and Mr. Mac Get Bobby Awards

in AppleOutsider edited January 2014

Justin Long and John Hodgman, the actors who portray a Mac and PC from Apple's current 'Get a Mac' advertising campaign, won a 2006 Garfield Bobby Award in the Best Performance, Male category from Advertising Age.

The 9th Annual Bobby Awards honor television commercial actors in Male, Female and Celebrity categories.

"The hands-down winners this year are Justin Long and John Hodgman, better known to you as Mac and PC in the campaign for Apple Computer (TBWA/Chiat/Day)" Bob Garfield writes. "Hodgman is a PC, earnest and uptight, and Long is a Mac, casually cool. Yes, PC is a doofus, but what so distinguishes these performances is how the two interact -- affably and respectfully, in spite of the central premise. Long is cool not because he's ultrahip but because he's laid-back and confident, minus any trace of condescension."
