Watch, they'll sell.
Also, AMD isn't really a big fan of single core performance since they KNOW that devs will get with the picture REALLY fast once they notice how much more they can do with 8-cores rather than one or two.
Yeah. They'll sell.
Big problem with your argument is that with programs that already CAN and DO take advantage of extra cores/threads, Intel still is on top. They NEED single core performance. They have the cores part down. If they get their single core performance up, they'd have a competitor.
And there is a difference between Apple selling something and AMD selling something.
There are quite a few Apple products actually priced very competitively/comparatively spec-wise-per-cost as a similarly built Windows machine. Not all, but a few. However, they have a brand name built up. Problem is that AMD doesn't have the brand name built up, and this chip is priced so far out of its performance level that it even puts those overpriced machines that Apple does produce to shame.
Right now, this chip is just utter garbage for how much it costs. It doesn't take a fanboy/girl on either side to realize that.

If you are going to do a PR stunt, at least have the part to back up said stunt. At this point, this PR stunt is turning into a laughingstock. And that's the last thing AMD needs right now.
