We all love the new Get a Mac ads here in the United States but Apple has a presence all over the world and the Get a Mac ads are just as popular elsewhere. We are all familiar with British Humor from BBC broadcasts to the many Monty Python Films. So Apple has created a unique series Get a Mac ads for the UK which mimic the US ads but with a distinctive British twist.
Apple has done the same in Japan , making localized versions using local actor/comedians. We in the west can appreciate those Japanese ads thanks to Coal an Editor/Translator/Publisher at Restall.org from Ota-ku Japan. It appears Coal started hosting these back on November 11, 2006 and has graciously allowed the PowerPage to host them locally.

Other than Japan and the UK all other countries use the US ads directly or dub them in the local dialect. All other countries who have Get a Mac Links link directly to the US Get a Mac page without any language localization. So if you have friends in any of these countries please forward the appropriate link to them. There are many other Apple related store type sites that are language specific, but they are typically representative agents for those respective countries such as in Israel.
