T-shirt, Hello, I’m a Mac. (blue, white logo, c. 2007)

This t-shirt is royal blue and features the words, “Hello, I’m a Mac.” front and center.

The t-shirt is a reference to an Apple ad campaign that ran from 2006–2009 titled “Get a Mac.” Television commercials and print ads featured two actors, Justin Long as “Mac” and comedian John Hodgman as “PC,” against an all-white background. Wikipedia describes the ads:

“The two…act out a brief vignette, in which the capabilities and attributes of Mac and PC are compared, with PC—characterized as formal and somewhat polite, though uninteresting and overly concerned with work—often being frustrated by the more laid-back Mac’s abilities. The earlier commercials in the campaign involved a general comparison of the two computers, whereas the later ones mainly concerned Windows Vista and Windows 7.”

Each ad uses the same soundtrack, “Having Trouble Sneezing,” by Mark Mothersbaugh. About 80 ads were produced for TV and the web.

The t-shirt tag indicates it is a Hanes Beefy-T brand made from 100% cotton in size 3XL. It was made in El Salvador. The back of the t-shirt features a white Apple logo at the top-center.

I purchased this shirt from the Apple Company Store at 1 Infinite Loop (Cupertino, CA) in approximately 2007.
