Microsoft didn’t just openly call out its competitor in its new campaign, but it even went to great extremes to find the right guy to do it.
For its latest spot, the tech giant apparently combed all over for a real guy named Mac Book to laud its Surface Laptop 2 and detail why it might be better than Apple’s MacBook Air.
Mackenzie “Mac” Book, who lives in Sydney, Australia, is seen in the commercial with both notebooks, but he’s never captured using the MacBook Air. This is because he supposedly thinks the Surface Laptop 2 is superior.
Book is asked a series of questions about the two devices, such as which laptop “lasts longer” or is “faster.” Each time, he picks Microsoft’s option.
“You should get a Surface,” he concludes. “Trust me, I’m Mac Book.”
