imageJust like the old Switch ads, Apple’s most recent Get a Mac commercials have inspired numerous parodies, many of them at least mildly funny. But few speak truth and amuse on quite the same level as this one, casting Sony’s PlayStation 3 in the PC role to Nintendo’s Wii as the Mac. For video game fans, it’s definitely worth a look.

I will be so surprised if this makes it on tv. It’s pg 13 stuff, but I think it will hurt the wii rather then help

So basically, the Wii is that stupid blonde that going out with seemed like a good idea at the time, but later down the line, you realize how annoying she is?

The Wii isnt going to be an annoying blonde.  its going to be great.  the women in this commercial represent the product perfectly.  the PS3 is going to be a fat annoying %^(#&@^*$#(^#&@ and the Wii is going to be fun and cheap, and honestly we all love fun cheap thing not fat annoying %^(#&@^*$#(^#&@ .

So which option to choose?
Thick as a brick, cheap, nasty, superficial, no substance, no personality, as interesting as watching paint dry.
or
Intelligent, expensive, quality, understated, intresting and goes like train when you get them behind closed doors (nudge nudge wink wink).
I’ll stick to the ps3 thanks.

“...honestly we all love fun cheap thing[s]”.
Oh, so now the stupid blonde is also a **?
