I’m The Computer Man! Apple Advertisement Of 1990s For Macintosh

Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
Today in this post I will show you Macintosh (Apple’s Mac) advertisement (ad) which made somewhere in late 1990s. This is a nice old advertisement, I think old used to be much beater advertisements then we have now in India. We do have few good advertisements (like: Vodafone and Docomo) now also but as much as old

Windows 95, plug and pray

By seeing the below Apple advertisement I was quite shocked that they have taken Windows 95 name (see in lyrics line No.9) directly in their ad. Anyways let’s see the advertisement which is interesting, enjoy. If you get problem in understanding the lyrics, there is a transcript just be the video.

I’m the computer man!
I’m the Macintosh man, with the virus scan.
Moving your files all across the land,
Some Photoshop photos and after dark,
Get your Microsoft office, express your quark.
Millions of colors with a view ram chip,
How about a system crash that will make you flip.
I’m the computer man!
Bee Bip Bip Boo Doo Bop
Bee Bip Bip Boo Doo Bop
I’m saying Windows 95 with this plug and pray,
The response you want you have to go the mac way.
Lock right on as a personal guest,
You have Macintosh software on your desk.
Sending an email with your request,
If it’s hardware you want baby count to this.
I’m the computer man!
Bee Bip Bip Boo Doo Bop
Bee Bip Bip Boo Doo Bop
Bee Bip Bip Boo Doo Bop
Get to a computer!

This is a remake of an original song by Scatman John and the name if original song is I’m the Scatman. When I first show above advertisement video I felt that I have heard such song before (but couldn’t able to remember the song name) and after lots of search I got the original song. Here is the original song video

  1. This was not a Mac commercial, this was an IT parity done by McCann Erickson IT dept in 97 or 98. the Computer Man was Art Cohen the head of the Mac group.

    Your lyrics are also wrong. Corrected version:
