I’ve been thinking for a while about all the Apple fanboys and fangirls I seem to be surrounded by and in fact have been admonished at length regarding my preference for PCs by the likes of Phil O Kane and Andy McMillan in very recent times.
It’s like owning a Macbook gives you entry into some upper echelon of geekdom that even the most ardent PC user is locked out of, not to mention anyone who is horrified by Apple’s frankly farcical pricing. And I’ve been plotting a response ever since, some answer to the Mac porn I’m constantly surrounded by.
If I had the time I might well have gone for a rip off of the Marks and Spencer’s ads, you know the ones with the lurid close ups of food and the breathy voice overs.
But alas, and I bow in reverence to them, the Simpsons have come along and beaten the pants off my ideas with the Mapple episode, where Springfield gets a Mapple store. The clips are genius. Thank you so much Simpsons people, you’ve made me happier than you can ever know.Permalink
