Chris Rock, host of this year’s twentieth MTV Video Music Awards will be spoofing the Apple iPod commercials while singing an a capella version of Justin Timerblake’s ‘Cry Me a River’ in front of a white background as part of several promo ads for the VMA. The RollingStones interview asked Chris Rock if he owns an iPod and he replied, “I got a music iPod and a comedy iPod. One is all comedy and spoken word, every speech, Kennedy, Martin Luther King, whatever.” The VMA commercials are currently airing on MTV, and the show premieres live on August 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
