iPhone Live 181: Apparently we're baristas


You guys comments about the samsung commercial was pathetic. Saying that it wasn't funny was a lie, it wasn't funny to you because it's true. Apple users stand in line for hours for a small upgrade. And it also showed that apple fans boys (and girls) are mindless sheeps and feel that if you don't upgrade, you're left behind or not cool enough. There is no reason to upgrade to a 4s when you have a 4. And the Sprint ad was going against att and verizon iphones users, not android users.

You did not find it funny but later on while talking every once in a while you characterized as funny many scenes of the commercial..
I agree that the commercial says that iphone users are sheep and stuff but meybe sometimes that's what someone needs-to be woken up by a slap in the face.. :-)
Another thing is that the ad never made fun of the fact that the iphone has bugs, but of the fact that even though it has its users have the "i don't care" mentality (they find it out while waiting to buy it and even though they find out something they don't like at, all they simply "don't care"! Every phone has bugs! (i know i am a developer :-/ )
And the ad finally was not funny because it tried to be funny in the generic way..It tried and succeeded for that matter to be sarcastic (as hell) - and "bagged" all the controversy of the two sides in a one minute video! That's just "MAGICAL" LOL (my own sarcasm for the magical ads of Apple)
