Apple Top of the Line

Apple’s latest “Get A Mac” television commercials, Top of the Line, Trainer and Surprise, bring in a touch of celebrity to counter Microsoft’s claims of superiority. Actors Patrick Warburton and Robert Loggia stand in for some PC bashing and Apple affirmation.

Top of the Line

Patrick Warburton, known for his roles on Seinfeld, Rules of Engagement and Family Guy, turns up as the Top of the Line PC.


Mac, for some reason, appears to promote PCs as the machine that is most reliable.


PC tries to shape up with the help of actor Robert Loggia.

Filming was shot by director Phil Morrison via Epoch Films with director of photography Peter Donahue.

Editor was Val Thrasher at Filmcore (Beast). Post production was done at D-Train by Ben Gibbs.
