    Hello everyone, finally, here is my "switch" parody. The movie itself was ready on 8-30-02 but then I was not able to upload it in time for the contest...

    Explanation: Unlike the other parodies, this "ad" consists of two parts. You may call them "The Rise and Fall of a PC-User" :D ;)

    If you wonder about the birthday message in the movie: Simultanous to the switch contest this video was my contribution to a birthday video for a friend. He makes music and his nick is "MKNorman" - just for the background.

    Here is the File (5 MB)
    http://home.arcor.de/st/stike/movies/stike-switch.mp4

    A BIG "THANK YOU" must go to the guys who contributed the switch-themes. I think the two versions fit perfectly!

    Have fun!

    Ha! Nice use of the music!!! Teabgs will be happy you used his.

    Over all it was great - too bad you didn't get it in earlier - and I'm still working on mine..... :rolleyes:

    Thanks - the trashy sounding theme from teabgs (that was his, right?) fits in the second part.

    Im curious about your ad... will it take long?

    Once I get it all together, no. I had a ton of work going on durning the contest that pretty much kept me busy. So I'll submit it as soon as I can. Its a little more involved too, I did some 3D animation for one part....

    Where did you get the background music? Did you rip it off of one of the ads on Apple.com/Switch?

    By the way, I absolutely loved it! Very funny, and very informative at the same time!

    Thanks again - slowly I begin to hate myself for not being able to upload it earlier.

    The music was/is (?) available here on the site, and it is no rip from the ads. The original sounds different. All music was performed by macrumors members.
