Get a Mac Commercial (62): “Trainer”
PC is trying desperately to get himself into shape in “Trainer”, the Get a Mac ad campaign’s 62nd offering and third of the August 2009 hat trick. The trainer is none other than the famous sports movie all-star, Robert Loggia as the aforementioned Trainer. Loggia barks orders at PC, who is lying on the floor in his usual suit plus a sporty headband. Loggia is wearing a grey sweatsuit and a whistle hanging from his neck and is holding a white towel.
PC explains that after the tough quarter he’s had, he brought in a trainer to get him back on the top of his game. Loggia barks at him with that signature gruff and gravely voice, “Come on! Get started you bucket of bolts! PC Mag rated Mac number 1 in customer support. Are you just gonna take that?”
“No!” grunts PC, doing situps in earnest.
“PC World’s readers called the MAc number one in reliability. He’s laughing at you,” declares Loggia.
Mac tries to disagree, “I’m not laughing at you.”
“He’s number one in customer satisfaction. What are you?” yells Loggia.
PC stops doing situps and tries to defend himself. “Maybe we can try some positive reinforcement?”
“Suuuuure!” yells Loggia. “You’re doing a good job, Mac.”
“Thanks,” Mac says, clasping his hands together.
PC stops doing situps again and groans, “Hey!”
