  • It's Me! Jay!

    Mar 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Shock Value, Generates public awareness
    Cons: People might misconstrue the use of guns in the ad

    Summary: Hello epinions community! I am writing this to help 'clear up' a few issues that you all seem to be having with this ad. I already wrote some of this content in comments on other's reviews, but I want to get these points across to ... read more

  • Decent computer, but horrible support from Apple far outweighs that

    Jun 4, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks terribly cool.
    Cons: Support service is positively abysmal.

    Summary: While my iMac is now functioning reasonably well, my experience with this supposedly take-it-out-of-the-box-and-go computer and the "support" staff at Apple cause me to not recommend this. Just like a 4-star restaurant: if the food is excellent but the ... read more

  • Jay got his point across!

    Nov 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Shooting solidified Jay's points
    Cons: Why didn't he shoot the Beanie Baby?

    Summary: Jay's commercial was insightful with spoken facts; it was responsible by showing excellent gun safety (Jay did not bring the iMac out to a local garbage transfer station behind the railroad tracks and set it up with some glass bottles); and let's face ... read more

  • Immature

    Pros: None. A poor attempt..
    Cons: Where do i start?

    Summary: So, why do you want to degrade the iMac. Simple, you're scared of it. The people who created this add are simply scared that a company like Apple, who might i say basically invented the personal computer, are beginning to find fame and fortune once ... read more

    Pros: cutsy ad if you can overlook the gun
    Cons: some people will be put off

    Summary: Just today Sept. 13, 2000 as I was doing my office drone duties I noticed a magazine "smartbusinessmag.com" The cover said "dot.com scams" I couldn't resist I had to read it. The first thing I noticed was the word epinions.com & ... read more

  • For shame!

    Jul 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Scars "epinions.com" into my mind
    Cons: Sends the wrong message completely. Equates Epinions.com with guns and violence.

    Summary: This was one of the first commercials I've ever seen for Epinions.com. Frankly, before I saw this commercial, I was very interested in what people told me about Epinions.com. However, this commercial nearly turned me away from this site completely. I ... read more

  • Target audience

    Jul 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Attention Getting
    Cons: Violent, Misinformative

    Summary: I thought your commercial was very innovative. That being said, I would like to discuss target briefly. You seem to have picked one that you felt strongly about, which you then go on to point out all the wrong things about. The point of the iMac isn't ... read more

  • The format ruined it...

    Jul 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It was kind of funny.
    Cons: It made the reviewer seem biased.

    Summary: While I agree that Jay has some points that are completely valid, I also think that this commercial made him out to be a person who is ani-macintosh. Shooting the iMac was also kind of out of line and not totally appropriate. This, to me, ... read more

  • How Embarassing

    Jul 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: When it's removed from the site, that will be a Pro!
    Cons: Don't get me started!

    Summary: Remember a few years back when some marketing genius decided to blow up the clown on a comercial? They probably thought it was cute. They probably thought that it would boost sales. They were wrong. I remember hearing stories about children having ... read more

    May 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes people think and is an example of what Epinion is about.
    Cons: Makes people think and is an example of what Epinion is about.

    Summary: After reading several of the opinions I decided to ask my 8 year old son what he thought of the ad. Here is what he said: "I thought it was funny but the shooting parts were bad" Why where the shooting parts bad? ... read more

  • Bye bye iMac

    Pros: Funny! Cool
    Cons: Gun (not HORRIBLE!)

    Summary: I first saw the ad from the site using Realplayer, because I have never seen it on the tv. Right away I liked the commercial! First off, I like the fact that the Epinions.com guys use an ACTUAL epinion and the ACTUAL person who wrote it! I ... read more

    Pros: bad commercial, and bad person
    Cons: none

    Summary: Hello. I am writing this on vbehalf of the hundreds of upset epinioners. Do you know why they stopped showing people smoking cigarettes on T.V.? Because children and teenagers thought the people smoking looked cool and they wanted to be like ... read more

    Pros: good way to get attention

  • A Concept, But Not a Commercial

    May 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A clever idea
    Cons: Too slow and looks like it was made by an amateur

    Summary: This was a brilliant concept for a commercial. It's clever and attention grabbing while still saying something about the product (Epinions). It's just edgy enough to seem cool to our target audience (the computer savvy, usually twenties and younger) ... read more

  • Lighten up!

    May 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Funny commercial
    Cons: I wanted to see more detail of the damage done to the IMAC

    Summary: This is a great commercial. This isn't some sort of statement commercial that is secretly funded by the NRA. Lighten up! I actually learned stuff about the IMAC that helps me decide whether or not I would like to buy one. Epinions isn't the place for ... read more

  • Awful Commercial

    May 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Terrible Review of a Great Computer, Disgusting Commercial

    Summary: I do not like this commercial in the least. The iMac is an awesome computer in my opinion (in fact, it SWITCHED my opinion from PC to Mac), and it is dirt cheap, too. For $1000 bucks or less, you can't get a decent PC. With the iMac, you get service, ... read more

  • The coolest commercial ever

    May 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: shows what should be done to all imacs, g3s and g4s.
    Cons: none

    Summary: A great commericial about how most "hardcore" pc users feel about macintosh products. I would definately visit epinions after seeing that kind of commercial, so would a lot of my friends. I especially like the analogy of the colors compared ... read more

  • My thoughts Exactly!!

    May 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: funny, to the point, will peak interest in the site
    Cons: might be found offensive but that peaks interest too (win - win)

    Summary: Oh man, this commercial rules! You have GOT TO AIR THIS its absolutely the funniest thing ive seen in a long time (i hate mac's incessantly!) If i had never heard of Epinions I would DEFINITELY check it out after seeing that commercial. Just ... read more

  • BAD idea

    Apr 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: in poor taste

    Summary: This commercial is in extremely poor taste. I'm sure the reason this is even being discussed has to do with all of the recent school shootings. Add to that the flurry of livery cab drivers who have been shot during their tours in New York ... read more

  • Completely Irrelevant

    Apr 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Can't hear the guy, wrong statements, kind of offensive to Imac users.

    Summary: I really don't like this TV Ad. For one, it shows nothing about the website Epinions and gives it a bad name by using this opinion to sponsor it. Another thing is you can't even hear the guy talk about the Imac and how he feels about it. All it is is gun ... read more
