Way back in 1984, Apple released one of the most iconic commercials of all time, their 1984-esque ad for the then new Apple Macintosh. Its imagery used to generate the idea that Apple was fighting back against the oppressive PCs of the day.
Valve, know for their fantastic games Half-Life, Half-Life 2 and Portal, among others, is releasing, finally, Half-Life 2 on the Mac. They created this teaser ad which parodies the original Mac ad, but places it in the Half-Life 2 world.Brilliant.
If you’ve never played any of these games, what’s the matter with you!? Go out and get them, play them, and enjoy them. They’re some of the best written SF games you’ll find.
Hit the jump for the original Macintosh ad.
