    It's very well done, mildly amusing and the concept is original, but personally I found the jokes a bit too predictable to consider it "hilarious"

    It was ok but I keep feeling like The Onion is the only place that really "gets" 'making-fun-of-Apple.'

    Cartoons like this (and many others I've seen) seem to start by looking up what Apple-haters say and then make jokes out of those things. The Onion always took the things that Apple fans actually say and makes fun of that. As a result, I always feel like The Onion is making fun of me directly whereas cartoons like this seem to be making fun of things I don't actually think.

    I dunno, this was fine but I don't laugh as hard when they're not attacking me as directly.

    For example, this video is far meaner, but I laughed at it a lot more.

    That's what I felt but you articulated it far better than I did :) (and that Onion video is a lot funnier too IMO)

    Read the post I've quoted above yours - that's exactly what I meant with my posting

    I did not laugh nor chuckle. Perhaps a very slight undetectable grimace at the end but overall I thought it was low brow as far as humor is concerned. The animation style was annoying. It was too caricatured out to the extreme.

    I'm pretty sure this same idea was used on an episode of the Simpsons. I don't see the originality at all, but it was amusing in spots.
