Yeah, they've got it about right:




I liked the 1984 take-off -- nice use of irony.

Also, Hulu is pretty darn cool.

  1. Thanks for the reminder that even though Family Guy is funny, The Simpsons is still the some of the best satire on television.

  3. This is also a take off of the old Apple commercial that was a take off of 1984.

  4. Here's an interesting insight about Hulu, via Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap, The Simpsons):

    ...Rupert Murdoch's Fox is climbing into bed with NBC. In truth, the two networks have been virtual lovers for more than a year, locked in the embrace of a larcenous website called Hulu, where they give new episodes of their shows away, sell advertising (presumably not for play money), then tell the actors, writers and directors of those shows that there's no revenue stream there.
