Satire media outlet The Onion published a new video news “story” about Apple adding a new service to its fleet of retail stores called the Friend Bar. The video (below) nicely skewers (us) Mac fans in a way that makes it clear that the writers of the piece truly understand the material.
“Building on the success of their Genius Bars, today, Apple Stores across the country unveiled the Friend Bar, where obsessive Apple users can come to discuss Mac products at length,” Andrea Bennett introduced the piece as anchor for the fake news service.
Several bits of additional comedic gold follow, including a quote from one of Apple’s new “Friends,” who said, “Unlike your girlfriend or your coworkers, we’re not going to get tired of discussing the wireless networking capabilities of the Snow Leopard operating system.”
It is, in short, genius, or so we think.
