Speaking of Peripherals…

You know that new Mac ad where PC is upgrading to Vista? At the end, Mac says, “Speaking of peripherals…” Can someone explain to me what that line is supposed to mean? I’ve watched the spot several times and I just don’t get it.

    Well my guess is it’s a “Cheeky” joke… ahem, and to be frank, there’s no beans about it? hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge.

  2. That was my initial thought, but if that’s the case, then it still doesn’t make sense.

  3. Oh my God! That commercial drives me crazy! Thank you for posting this, now I know I’m no the only one.

    Well my guess is that since they show an iMac at the end (computer + monitor all in one), the cheeky joke is that Apple is ingenious enough not to need a peripheral monitor.

  5. I took the peripheral comment to mean anything outside, as in extra. I haven’t seen the commercial in a while, but it was probably insinuating that Macs have more extra stuff than PCs do.

  6. I do believe – based on the glance, the hospital garb, and tone in which the line is said – that Mac is just referring to PC’s ass.

  7. Aha! Kris, I believe you’ve solved it. Thank you!

    So what part of “a “Cheeky” joke” didn’t imply PC’s Ass?

    I never get the credit I’m owed! 🙁

  9. When you said “no beans about it,” I thought you meant PC had farted. The expression is “no bones about it.” I don’t know about anyone else, but in my mind, cheeky + beans = fart.

    Speaking of PC, this blog isn’t (politically correct, that is). Feel free to say things like ass, cunt, fuck, and whatever other obscenities help you make your point.

    And, once again, this is not an invitation to leave comments comprised of nothing but swear words (although I know Mike will).

    Anyway, Kris and Tom will have to share the glory.

    Oh, ok, well the “Beans” was meant to go along with the “Frank” Damn me and my obscure and diluted film references…

    “Charlie Jensen: Is it the frank or the beans?

    Ted: I don’t know, both I guess.

    Warren: [from outside] Franks and Beans! Franks and Beans!”

  11. I can share the credit for a fee. Otherwise, it’s ALL MINE! 🙂

    …fuck ass cunt shit…

    Damn… I need to find some work, I’m spending way to much time on the damn web these days.

  14. Are you taking a fucking nap at work right now, you lazy piece of shit? It’s 1:08 pm on January 24, and you’re fucking webcam shows you slouched down in your chair with your fucking eyes closed. WAKE THE FUCK UP MOTHERFUCKER!!!!

    See, not totally comprised of swear words. I’m getting better.

    I think Kris needs to pay credit where credit is due – TO ME!! Kris didn’t even get the ass joke until I POINTED IT OUT TO HIM!!!!

    So, the glory is rightfully mine.

  16. @Mike – Perhaps my eyes are closed because I’m blinking! I don’t sleep at work. Anymore.
