A leaked advertisement for the Surface Laptop 2 features a man named Mac Book comparing the Surface Laptop 2 and the MacBook. The commercial is tongue-in-cheek and reminiscent of a Taco Bell advertisement in which Taco Bell hired several people named Ronald McDonald to say they liked Taco Bell. The Microsoft commercial was leaked by Twitter user WalkingCat.
The ad compares the Surface Laptop 2 to the MacBook in regards to battery life, speed, and touch screen. As you'd expect, the commercial highlights areas in which the Surface Laptop 2 beats the MacBook.
It's worth pointing out that the fine print in the commercial says that the comparison is against the MacBook Air.
