New Apple Claymation

Posted in Marketing, Movies, TV

The latest Apple commercial is a Christmas-themed spoof of one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies: the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Claymation from The Original Christmas Classics.

In the 1964 Christmas story features an outcast reindeer and wanna-be dentist elf who run away together – run into the Abominable Snowman, find an island of misfit toys, to which Rudolph eventually leads the way for Santa’s sleigh.

In the Mac spoof, a desperate PC bastardizes the holiday classic, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" to encourage people to buy a PC and not a Mac – to which the Mac and Santa look on disapprovingly. Though it’s not a story spoof, it’s incredibly clear where the inspiration for these characters came from!
