Trust me, history prefers dull Germans to excited ones.

So the whole: "Apple: Computers for Dumb People" theme isn't working.

Huh.

Stupid apple. They could have learned from WW2 how the Germans lagged behind in joke warfare.

Why does it take three Polacks to change a light bulb?

Because they are stupid.

Apple makes me sick with their Big Brother bullsh*t press releases. "that was the plan all along!" f*ck off morons.

And they've disabled comments on the ads on YouTube. That's pretty cowardly. Maybe cowardly's not the word. It's despicable because it makes them seem slimy and sneaky.


Oh and this made me laugh:

You know what's really funny about this?

The fact that you are stupid.

Germans are so unfunny that jokes about them being unfunny aren't funny.

I really couldn't believe those were Apple commercials. They could have been from Radio Shack, ferchrissakes.

I love how it's somehow the fault of the ad agency, and yet we gloss over the fact that Apple had to approve and sign off on the ads prior to release.

In other words, sure, a German ad agency produced them, but Apple thought they were a good idea, too.

FTFA: with some observers objecting to the portrayal of customers as clueless


Whoever those observers were I think you can safely ignore anything they ever say again. Those ads were pretty much as close to perfectly goddamn inoffensive as possible.

I heard the uproar first, then saw the commercials. They weren't bad.
