As to MacNN's question of authenticity, if you watch it, it's obviously a well budgeted, sharply edited film. I doubt anyone would put the kind of money required to create it into a spoof. Plus it's got a pretty cool MI-esque feel. Check it out.

From what I see, it might be released in time for Mission Impossible 2? Maybe not...

I saw that guy on the Saprano's must be a real ad not out yet. cause it is on www.adcritic.com plus it obviously is a much bigger production than anything else... My girlfriend thinks it might be a Canadian Ad maybe. Either way can't wait to see it on TV or for that matter see it as a trailer in the movie thearter right before MI2!! By the way is the woman a cop? or a "BAD" person?

There's an article HERE that has the makers of this ad claiming no intention to deceive... and what is the title of this thread? And who is the poster?? Could "karlicious" be Karl Larsen who happens to be one of the producers of the ad??

Hmmmm, sez me... kinda duplicitous behaviour sez me

Publicity stunt, eh?

I really really like this commercial and would like Apple to use it, and buy it or Steve to use it when he's on stage next time. Like when he shows off the dual processor G4s. To the producers GOOD work!! Jeff

It is infact official that the commercial was made by those two in the credits.
They filmed it in an abandoned Oil Refinery in LA. Its all over the Mac news sites. Like this one MacNN.

Who cares who made it ???

It is a fantastic ad. I wish they played it here in Australia. Where I live, I have seen only one iMac commercial.

But anyway ....great ad who ever made it.
