Mad TV Presents the iRack!

https://youtu.be/-mCCYLC-4xA

NOTE: I originally posted this on November 4 last year, but it seems it got a little lost in the flurry of pre-election posts. So as I again don’t have time to do a new post this week, I thought I’d re-post it.

After all my serious election related posts, I thought it was time for a humorous one as Americans head off to the polls. On the surface, this brilliant Mad TV sketch is a parody of a Steve Jobs Apple keynote (and it actually works pretty well on that level), but underneath it is actually an even funnier parody of something else entirely. Definitely one of the cleverest comedy sketches I’ve ever seen!

I didn’t want to give the joke away in my post before people watched this video, but I feel this sketch is also a sobering reminder of one of the most important issues of this election – like George Carlin’s stand-up, it may be comedy, but is also frighteningly close to reality. Like all great comedy I guess!

They always have samples of similar stuff after you play a vid and so the next one up was this one which says “American’s are probably bigger, better, and fatter than anybody on the planet.”

It is a advertisement espousing the benifits of a greasy diet.

In response to Steve Jobs miscue with the iRack, Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer released the following statement:

“Yes! Jerry Yang! Out of there! Wait, wrong news conference. Just kidding folks. When I arrived at the office today, I received a call from Mark at Nike that the gang over at Apple are at it again, with the release of their new model of whatever it is, the iRan. In their grand tradition of thievery (stealing from the Beatle’s Apple Records), they have again infringed upon the international copyrights of a fellow Pacific Northwest corporation. After discussing the situation with our field development team, we at Microsoft are proud to unveil what we deem to be the ultimate countermeasure against the iRan: the eMobile! (Balmer shows one of those brick-sat phones.) Yes, the eMobile will be able to counter the iRan under any and all circumstances. Additionally, the eMobile has the additional cross-functionality (Balmer lifts the corner of an obviously unbalanced rack-server, and shoves the brick-sat phone under the short leg) of rack-mobility stabilization. So, in this singular product of the eMobile, we at Microsoft Corporation believe that our product will be able to isolate and contain the marketplace from any potential penetration of the faulty iRack and impetuous iRan.”

LOL! It is amusing to consider what Micro$oft might do to copy, er, respond to the iRack and iRan. ;-)
