I listen to a radio station in Atlanta (105.3). It's a rock station, and on their website they usually post parodies of pop culture events. I was surprised to see a Mac vs. PC parody, so I checked it out and I was shocked!! Depending on your sense of humor, this will be really funny or very repulsive....so be warned!

P.S. - I wasn't very sure where to put this...so I'm hoping this is the right board.

Awww, I think it's cute in a sort of "you have to think anything stupid people do is cute, cuz, god, it's hard enough being stupid and they're trying their bestest" sort of way. :eek: ;) :D

Well, it was a good idea taken too far. The "I can download porn too...Well, so can I, I do it all the time" was quite funny given that approximately a third of all internet traffic is adult-related. But the bit with the thought bubbles and everything afterwards was just, well, unfunny.

That was (excuse my french) RETARDED! They're sending the wrong message to people... Yes I know it's meant to be funny in a twisted sorta way... "Macs are good for making porno flicks!".. Come on now.. Sheesh.

Thats such a lame video, like it was the first thing that popped out of their heads.

Well the video was so lame I'll most likely forget all about it in about... 30 seconds.

im hoping that mac users aren't being offended by this. you need to take this at what it's worth, and that is NOTHING! it's just a stupid thing made to give people a giggle or two at work. they're not saying that mac's are good at making porn, or that mac users are gay. the whole thing is supposed to be stupid and taken with the tiniest grain of salt on earth.

I don't think anyone's offended by this at all, I just don't think people think it's very good. :(

i agree. there are tons of better parodies for those commercials.

actually, on a related note, my friend was trying to set up his logitech usb webcam to try to get on a video chat with me and my other friend. we were using iChat and he was using MSN Messenger. needless to say, while my friend and i were chatting away, he was downloading drivers and fiddling with the settings. when he couldn't get it to work right, he said "this would make a good mac vs. pc commercial." i just laughed.

You have to remember that Mac zealots have no sense of humor ;)

Pointless? Yes.
Lame? Maybe.
Most repulsive ever? You don't get out much, do you?

I did not find this repulsive, funny or any other adjective that would disgust or amuse me.

I actually find the porn thing is a recurring theme with Mac ad spoofs, but this one is the funniest first time I have seen:

That one was actually funny, not retarded and nothing of a spoof like the other one.
