    I actually SAW Pogue doing part of this at the 5th Ave. NYC store (I remember him walking through the fountain), and I was like WTF?!?!

    NOW I know what it was all about.
    Whew, good to know.... I thought he was just crazy! Hahaha
    :D

    David,

    Awesome. Keep up the great video's. Can you do another one to Pink Floyd? (just kidding)

    Really, though, it was awesome.

    I tend to like his videos, but I stopped at the "made-in-hell-phone".

    Man, that guy who had a bald head looked like Phil Schiller with no hair (which is certainly an improvement over that mullet he used to sport).

    I loved that line, too. Teehee. As for folks singing, come on.... I doubt most of us could sing half as well, given that they probably had to have "known" which song D. Pogue meant and it's not that easy being put on the spot.

    That line for me, is tied w/ that 1/2 a grand line. :D Definitely made me chuckle.

    That part did irk me a bit, but I'm a sucker for musicals... so I kept watching. :eek:

    Brilliant!

    This is one of David Pogue's greatest works, truly brilliant! The out of tune singing brings this satire even more into the realm of reality. Great lyrics and wonderfully performed.

    This video just cracked me up! Having learned earlier today how to get videos into my iPhone (it really does help to read the manual!!) I promptly converted it so that the next time I synch my iPhone with iTunes it should appear....

    I'm sorry to be a cynic--but was this really funny?

    I have to say David Pogue's smugness has always gotten to me, but singing showtunes on top of it. Makes me shiver.

    Here's something funny:
    Apple to introduce iPhone Shuffle that stores 1,000 random phone numbers
