The new UK Apple ad

I wouldn't normally post about a single ad but in the new Apple ad, they have created something commercial people want to send to friends and made it amazingly location-specific with exactly the right actors. [addition] quite a vitriolic take on the ads and macs from a Mac hater. I don't love macs particularly myself, I think its just a nicer screen and keyboard with better available software for music and video.
