Apple is sponsoring the MTV Movie Awards, so numerous Apple ads air everyday (along with a mention that they're sponsoring the event).

So far I've only seen the tired "3 steps" ad, with the updated iMac DV in the picture.

Apple sponsers many MTV shows. The last one I noticed (besided thes Movie awards) was 'Making the Video'.

Also several weeks ago I saw an Apple ad with a garage band making a music video on an iMac DV (tangerine i think).

Also shows like Real World and Road Rules always have PowerBooks on the show.

How odd, with all this Apple/MTV hoopla, that Mac users can't play WebRiot!

ive seen apple displays on many mtv shows, but not always showing the mac running them. i remember one show, there were iBooks being used by the hosts, and graphite flat panels (not cinema displays) being used by the audience. i forget what show it was...

I believe that Apple and MTV have had a tight relationship since the Mac first edited video (mid to late 80's?)
