In this newly launched Vista bashing adventure disguised as a "Get A Mac" ad, John Hodgman, who brilliantly plays PC is seen hosting a doofus bake sale; "Trying to raise money to fix Vista," Hodgman says. PC continues to ridicule Microsoft by accusing the marketing guys of running a big expensive ad campaign rather than using the money to fix Vista. The sad thing is it's true. That's what makes Bake Sale brilliant!
Apple's message here is clear, Microsoft's marketing blows no matter how much money they try to spend. The V-word is ridiculously broken, a joke we should all just get over by now. The problem is, nothing has changed with the V-word except the marketing. Microsoft launched a failed hack series of "Dumb and Dumber" commercials featuring Seinfeld and Gates. Then they started forcing America to endure some staff Microtard stereotype attempting to regain something lost long ago. Credibility! He might as well have shown up in those lame "I'm A PC" commercials wearing a friggin Zune costume for Jobs sake.
"Bake Sale" is a painfully authentic exercise in truth telling parody. The Microsofties have earned the right to be mocked, in fact they just paid $300 million for that exclusive right. Apple is not the neighborhood bully here. They are the cool, artsy emo kid that Microsoft bullied mercilessly in their formative years. Apple never cried uncle, they just grew up and got better. I'm now perfectly content to gather with the fanatical Mac heads for a fight in the school parking lot. I'll be the one yelling; "Kick 'em in the nards dude!" Somebody has to. The Future. Delicious.
