In a tragic climax to the “Get a Mac” ad series, authorities say that earlier today PC, pushed beyond the breaking point, allegedly killed Mac shortly after the taping of the latest spot.
The spot reportedly centered around more of PC’s inadequacies while highlighting the many benefits of Mac, driving PC into a final fit of murderous, jealousy-fueled rage.
According to sources present, PC fled the scene in a white Ford Bronco driven by Windows.
Windows spoke to pursuing authorities using a Windows Mobile phone.
“This is Vista,” Windows said. “I’ve got PC in the back. Back off or he’s gonna reformat himself!
“What? Who is this?! You know who this is, dammit!”
PC was apprehended just outside a CompUSA where it apparently had hoped to get lost in a crowd of other PCs. Authorities were tipped off, however, when Vista’s security system loudly asked “YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO FLEE POLICE ON FOOT. CANCEL OR ALLOW?”
In a final irony, PC was booked without a mug shot as the digital camera the police used experienced a driver conflict.
Legal experts say that since the Mac is still just a computer, PC can at worst only face charges of property damage. Further, sources say Apple is considering continuing the ad campaign as it can easily replace Mac with another Mac that looks just like it.
