Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC. A collection of videos on youtube targeting both the Mac/PC ads and comic book based movies. Ten videos so far, with more coming "Soon. I promise."

Okay, this goes on the list of Stuff I've Seen That I Shoulda Posted to MeFi list. I tip my hat, Mr. Frog. I tip my hat.

Anyways, this series of videos has even made my wife, veteran of too many Marvel movies I dragged her to ("Is Magneto the bad guy?"), not only laugh but be more willing to hear me drunkenly expound on the History of Comics, the Nature of Comics, and Why Civil War Sucked.

Once they get away from the whole Apple-spoof, things really start to shine. Batman and Spider-man comparing woes is wonderful in that all too rare "I wish I thought of that" way.

Tear up the blue with expound-ness-ly-'s-s'?

Entertain me with knowledge.

"A movie by David Goyer, who wrote Batman Begins."

"Yes. And directed Blade: Trinity, I believe."

[pause]

"What?"

LOL!

These are hilarious. The batman one is my favorite.

Nice, though someone should tell this guy that commercials are usually thirty seconds. These could be even better if they were punchier.

Though the batman entrance was pretty great...

Very nice post CrunchyFrog.

You know, these would be a heck of a lot funnier if they were 30 seconds long. The concept is funny enough, but the execution is a bit tedious.

"Hulk between jobs. Must supplement income."

I haven't laughed that hard in ages.

My vote is for brilliance! Tho I agree, some could be shorter...

Most excellent, JustSomeRandomGuy. Carry on!

Green Arrow meets Hawkeye, perhaps? Just plain ol' Green Arrow with any of these guys would rock.

With a name like JustSomeRandomGuy, you'd think he'd post here already.

The Batman one is awesome. Though, yes, they should be shorter.

Okay wait. #2 made me laugh harder than the Batman ones.

Last comment, I swear, but: watch them all. There are a couple that could be shorter, but as a whole, it balances out.
Hilarious.

Superhero tangent: check out yogabeans (http://www.yogabeans.com/) for hilarious versions of yoga classes using a variety of posable figures - the most current includes Spiderman, Mr. Freeze, Woody from Toy Story, Flash and the Green Lantern. The imagined dialog is hysterical :o)

For other PC/MAC spoofiness, see also "I'm a Liberal, I'm a PC."

I thought the first two or three where a bit preachy (too one sided toward Marvel). Once Batman shows up they get better, and once they get to the bar it's really good.

The later ones are great - IronMan keeling over is fantastic!

And, that Liberal vs. PC thing. Awesome.. They have to air it!

robocop is bleeding: "this series of videos has even made my wife, veteran of too many Marvel movies I dragged her to ('Is Magneto the bad guy?')..."

That is such a weighted question. Divorces have happened for less.

...that question's right up there with "Does this mutant power make me look fat?"

UGH, THE MUSIC.

(aside from that, I enjoyed it)

I agree with oddman about the first few, but I couldn't stop laughing through "After Hours".
