Feast your eyes on the "Fly on the Wall at Cupertino" series:
Reinvented around you. - YouTube
Oh wow. Wait - is that... Steve Jobs!? Not cool, Microsoft. At all.
I was all fired up to switch back to Microsoft from Apple, but I'm not sure I want to be associated with this kind of bad taste; way bad timing!

After watching them, I'm not entirely sure that they are meant to be ads at all. As has been commented on at great length, the quality is lacking, the production is awful, and it's just generally all-around bad. There's also no Microsoft branding, just the #timetoswitch tag at the end. This is entirely unlike MS's recent advertising efforts. Maybe this was supposed to be a joke around MS that was accidentally tagged as public?

Not cool. A Steve Jobs lookalike from behind wearing a black turtleneck (Tim Cook has grey hair). I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft hold a crisis meeting over this and someone gets fired. Once you release something on the internet you can't get it back again.

no, apparently it only "embarasses" people like you who care about non important things like ads and phones and what others do.
its just an ad, it wont kill an animal or a person, it would pull your pants down when you are ina conference or a speech graduation. its only a stupid video uploaded on internet. its not like 99% of YouTube videos arent stupid anyway, or what? are you embarassed of human race because they do stupid things everyday?
apparently the only ones giving importance to such and "ad" becuase it wasnt really an ad.. its you and others who apparently dont have much to do today besides making a thread about a video that someone made that you didnt like.
tomorrow you will make more threads about more YouTube videos you find embarassing or bad, or racist, or stupid?

First off- welcome to our forums. I have never seen a "introductions" thread so popular. You will fit in.
I am with AOFSOCAL: I laughed. A lot. It was like a good SNL skit. Apple so needs to be made fun of for this kind of thing.
"We are so innovative...but not innovating" kind of thing is what keeps them turning huge profits. More power to them, but .... they just NEED to be made fun of....I find your lack of faith disturbing. - Darth Vader

I think everyone else who thinks this "isn't cool" is taking it too seriously. If the humor wasn't your cup of tea then that's fine. But why would I be embarrassed by this? I'd be far more embarrassed to pull out my iPhone in public after seeing the new golden iBling 5S crap Apple pulled.

Why would he refer to Steve Jobs as "T"? That doesn't make any sense at all. I'm pretty sure the guy with his back to the camera is supposed to be Tim 'with a T' Cook. I personally didn't find the ad funny, but I'm not insulted by it either.
However, this Apple parody is hilarious...

I see the future and was told by evaleaks that,
Apple coming up with Iphone 6 next year, made of 18k Rose Gold, Sterling Silver and aluminium and it will have a retina scanner, the other features include
-Pretty much the design & everything else stays same
We've added a lot of nothing inside it so the price has to go up and yes, Iphone 5c, 5s are being discontinued.
The best Iphone, ever.
I have a hunch that all of these is funded by NSA.
Now, am not sure where these fingerprint database is stored, I hope they have a bulletproof server else its gonna be a bad time if some tosser breaks into it.
Its not about fruits anymore.
