Spoof ad mocks iPod

Microsoft has produced an internal video spoof of Apple's 'Get a Mac' ad campaign, according to one report. The ad, which was originally uploaded by ZuneBoards but was allegedly created by the Redmond-based software giant, praises Zune over Apple's iPod for its wireless song transfer capability and the iPod's perceived delicate nature. The advertisement also depicts the iPod as more difficult to load with music than the Zune, describing a lengthy process of looking up song lyrics on the internet before browsing to iTunes and finally entering credit card information to receive the purchased track. Finally, Microsoft touts the fact that its Zune player is available in a brown color.

    This from the company that touted iPod/Macusers as "people who steal" and they now encourage that with the Zune.

    Users can FINALLY color match their beige box with a brown t*** to go with their c*** OS. MS's strategy is finally coming to light!!

    Nice

    A badly made knock-off of something made by Apple. Now I'm sure there's something ironic in that, but I can't work out what....
