A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Microsoft hires an Aussie guy named Mac Book to promote its new laptop, taking the mickey out of Apple Mac

Tech giant Microsoft has hired a guy named Mac Book (his real name) to feature in their current ad campaign. And he’s Australian!

The ad is a revenge tactic of sorts, with Microsoft getting back at Apple for saying (ten years ago) that PCs were boring.

Yep, Microsoft did a search and discovered a real Mackenzie Book down under and so invited him to promote the brand’s Surface 2 laptop computers.

The ad sees Mac Book being asked questions about which laptop is faster and lasts longer, the winner coming out top being Microsoft’s Surface 2, of course.

The ad is a revenge tactic of sorts, with Microsoft getting back at Apple for saying (ten years ago) that PCs were boring.
