Ad agency Valve reworks a classic Apple ad for this Mac Half Life 2 '1984' teaser. Half Life 2, which was released for Mac OSX on May 26, was promoted by parodying the 1984 commercial that first introduced the Macintosh computer.

In the Mac Half Life 2 '1984' teaser, game character Alyx Vance hurls a crowbar at an image of Dr. Breen on a giant screen. Apple hasn't always been known for gaming, but this new move might change that.
