He Sees You When You’re in Sleep Mode...

If you are a Mac or Rankin/Bass fan (or both), then you will want to check out the new “Get a Mac” ad Apple has posted on their web site that delightfully salutes the Rankin/Bass holiday specials of the past. The TV spot has animated versions of 'Mac' Justing Long and 'PC' John Hodgman accompany Santa Claus as they proceed to sing the classic Christmas tune 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'. Partway through the song, however, 'PC' decides to interject his own lyrics. The fanciful stop-motion homage is directed and animated by Drew Lightfoot, and designed by Shane Prigmore. See the ad here.
For those of you who would like to sing along, here are the lyrics to the classic song:

You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout, I'm telling you why,
Santa claus is coming to town.

He sees you when you're in sleep mode,
He knows when you're awake,
He knows when you've been bad or good, so buy a PC and not a Mac this holiday season, or any other time for goodness sake, ohh!

Who knew!?
