Hey, wait a minute. I know that guy. He’s a magazine publisher and he’s switched to the Mac. He’s no Ellen Feiss, but he’s one of the best pitch men I know, David Carey, publisher of the New Yorker. (Here’s how the ad came about. As a recipient of a David Carey note, I can attest to his “natural” gift of sending them naturally.

But, come to think of it, David also is a professional switcher.

Magazine folks appearing on a TV spot (or in a print one for that matter) seems a little disjointed to me, but it isn’t unprecedented. I recall (or am I’m making this up) Ellen Levin being on some type of cosmetics advertisement several years ago.
