He Sees You When You’re in Sleep Mode
Mac maniac and world-class friend Russell Miller clued me in on a new “Get a Mac” ad (Apple calls it a Christmas card) that delightfully salutes the Rankin/Bass holiday specials. The caricatured stop-motion puppets are a joy to behold, what with a classic Santa Claus, John Hodgman’s outsized nerdy glasses and Justin Long’s hip goatee. Russ is so up on all things Mac that he notified me about the fanciful stop-motion homage (directed and animated by Drew Lightfoot, designed by Shane Prigmore) before Jerry Beck posted about it on his always-excellent Cartoon Brew blog. (Too bad I wasn’t as quick to post.) Thanks, Russ!
