The much-linked UK Get a Mac adverts are a work of genius. Not because of the scriptwriting, but the casting. Those two guys are David Mitchell (PC) and Robert Webb (Mac), a comedy double-act with a cult following here in the UK. Their Peepshow series, about two self-obsessed flatmates called Jeremy and Mark, who have very similar characters to PC and Mac, is one of the funniest things that’s been on telly in recent years. They’ve also done sketch shows on TV and radio.
From the Peepshow series notes:
On the surface, Jeremy and Mark are quite horrible people; underneath they’re even worse.
See? Even their old characters are just like computers. Excellent.
