Another controversial view

Apple computers have long been my favorites; Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, some sort of personal hero
Here's a parody about the presentation of a new product.
How I know it is a parody? Because the comedian is loud, a sure sign that we are supposed to laugh.

Very funny but very ouch too Koosje! At first I thought it was one of those infomercials.....but no!

Erik McDonalds said...

Why 'Ouch to Koosje'? He is a McFan. Soon available in any (Mc)drive in near you.......all sensible people use windows to look beyond their own environment? Don't they? ;-))
Love,

Would be either a draughty or a dark world without windows, that's true.
Tip: look for the double meaning of iRack and iRan...

Erik-Jan said...

Hi Koos,
Did you think we did not get that (iRack and iRan) message.....

Koos F said...

The question "Why Ouch to(o)" made me think the double meaning wasn't seen.

Erik-Jan said...

Right. My quote wasn't that precize either. Sorry.

VallyP said...

I don't have any windows and my world's not dark and drafty...I have found the apple of my eye ;-)

Erik Jan, don't apologise! I thought your comment was trés witty!

Anne-Marie said...

Hilarious political satire, Koos! I see it's from MadTv, which I think is a show not unlike the old Saturday Night Live.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Koos and Val,

Erik-Jan, You have beaten us all at it: a professional round trip boat skipper in Amsterdam!
A skilled photographer on top of all that. What more can one achieve?

Erik-Jan said...

Hi Koos,
Do not know what more but....
Talked today to one of the managers of Water-Taxi in Amsterdam. They want me as well. They do pay less but have much bigger boats. Very nice also. Maybe I can combine the two if Canal Company lets me. If not I'll stay with Canal Company. will talk about it with them. Keep you posted.

Great video. I burst out laughing a few times.

Rache said...

Pouting now.... I tried to watch your video and it said it's not available any more.... :(

It sounds like it was very funny...

Koos F said...

Truly sorry Rache, YouTube does that, and we are at their mercy.
Brief outline:
The presenter in the film is supposed to be Steve Jobs presenting a new Apple product: the i-Rack. This is a very unstable product and the audience protest with the usual arguments against the (war in) Iraq.
The presnter then says he will allocated more manpower to the project and starts throwing more money at it too.
However he has an extra product to pesent. Follows image of a running shoe called i-Ran.

Hence Vally's comment about it being very funny but also very ouch.

Rache said...

Hmmm... very tongue in iCheek....

Koos F said...

Great comment Rache ;-)
