Mac’s new web ad: Don’t Give Up on Vista

November 27, 2007

Yeah, another YouTube link so soon, but this one’s kinda out there. Apple has usually been known for its aggressive marketing, and it’s not slowing down with its latest addition to the Mac campaign. The following internet ad appears on the CNet’s own Windows Vista Page! Better yet (or worse, depending on your perspective), it cleverly uses the page’s own content and layout to make its point against its competitor.

This marketing tactic seems so wily, so inconsiderate…it could be described as “ehhhh…I don’t think that should be legal.” What’s next, political attack ads against presidential candidates on their own websites?
