Okay, this has to be the most amusing switch parody I've ever seen. I laughed my ass off.

Thanks to Derek for the link. I'm sure it's elsewhere and I just missed it.

Very Nice! Still being a Mac user myself (though more and more infrequently) I can identify with this. Particularly since I'm stuck at OS 8.6 (my iMac's CD drive is broken and I'm too cheap to pay $200 for a new one)...

hmmm.... i have to disagree. in the vote for best switch ad, the anakin parody takes my vote. very clever and efficient in delivery - oh yeah, and it's hillarious.


check it out if you haven't seen it.

hell, I have a new iBook mac and this stuff is funny. most of the problems there talking about I havent had since 1995 CrapMac 9000 though, its better than those crappy anti-mac hacks they have out there, this is real comedy. Oh, and BTW, this works fine on Quick Time, WIndows Media kept messing up on me

That is a hilarrious clip...I wonder who went thru the trouble of putting together this spoof.

I am surprised that old BG himself wasn't in there acting. Can I tell you I was rolling on the floor....ROLLING MAN ROLLING

I don't get it...what OS is this guy using? I don't recognize any of his problems even remotely, i'm using OS X...

Having used both OS9 and OSX I see all these problems...from the update manager to renaming a file without even knowing it because i've clicked it and touched another key...ooh and the dock...such a poor attempt at a start menu/taskbar.

WMV version is much better in terms of size...don't work on urs probably because u have a mac eh :) Play it on a PC WMP9. And most of those problems are OSX ones so they are new and happen every day :( I do like the redvsblue one though
