The heavy set guy's first appearance was the funniest - about making everything bigger and putting it all back in but the camera not fitting

Also liked the best buy joke

Can't wait for the "why I was wrong to hate the iPad" videos.
Or the "I should have never bought the iPad" or "See I was right about the iPad" videos.

Humor is humor. If these types of videos bother anyone that much - they shouldn't watch.

What's the matter with you?? No sense of humor??
I have a sense of humor.

It's just how many of these really need to exist?

Maybe if this was the only one, or the first one I saw, I'd be more of a fan.

For example, that "Cop Out" movie that's coming out: Did they really need to make another "black cop & white cop are partners" comedy? Is there ground that hasn't been covered in that genre? I think the answer is no. :D

While I can agree to an extent - it's a bad analogy. Movies are money makers pretty much even if they are dupes, ripoffs, sequels, reboots, etc. They get made to make money. And even the worst ones make money because after they are released, there are rights for video, web, foreign, tv, etc.

And 90 percent of movies/literature/music is derivative of something. There are very FEW original ideas.

That aside - if you don't want to watch - don't click. It's that simple. But why stifle someone else's creativity?

I'm open-mindedly pro-iPad, and thought this was pretty funny. Noot ROTFLMAO, but worth a small chortle.

I agree. I just showed these to my wife and father inlaw and they didn't get it because they never saw apples promo. I think it's great and I love to laugh at stuff like this. Will it keep me from being the first one on my block to own a ipad? I don't think so. :D
This is another good one.

I've gotta agree. I'm always open to a laugh, and this video does a nice job of trying to be do just that. I've seen a few similar, and seen this one last week, it is done pretty well to imitate how Apple does their promo's.

I personally can only take so much of Ivy and SJ spouting their pixie dust and unicorn theories about a magical slab of aluminum and glass.

Love the idea of the iPad.. but come on.. my ---- is more "magical" than the iPad. It can transform and do things the iPad can only dream of :)

I approve of this video if only because they didn't resort to feminine hygiene product jokes.
