Apple's Mac Pro Gets Mocked in Taiwanese Animation

Taiwanese news outlet Next Media Animation is known for producing humorous animations based on current events. NMA.tv shot to fame with the Tiger Woods scandal and now covers a wide range of topics, from the allegations against Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to NSA data mining. This week, the company took on Apple's WWDC announcement of the black Mac Pro and iOS 7 with some rather inappropriate jokes and a few digs at Apple fans.

 

Though there was no iPhone or Haswell-powered MacBooks in sight, Apple did launch a brand new all black Mac Pro with a very interesting form factor. A radical departure from the previous design, the Mac Pro is cylindrical in shape and features a space-saving design with a removable cover that allows for swapping of parts. NMA's latest video rips into Apple fans and their brand loyalty while making fun of the Mac Pro's unique new design. Check out the video below:

    "Mac Pro, now diminishing productivity even better!". Seriously, using Apple stuff for productivity is like hammering screws and screwing nails...

    Apple is the cat's meow for content creation. You have obviously never used a Mac Pro for anything like heavy Photoshop, Premiere, Desktop Publishing, or anything that requires stability. I'm also a working DJ, and use my MacBookPro for any live performances. Reason? Apple is rock solid. Windows machines constantly have issues. Atleast 1 - 2 a night for the other guys in the booth.

    WTH! 1-2 issues each night. I work for an organization that has around 400 computers with Windows, and even thought from time to time I have issues, they are still rare. If I had issues with them this often, like you describe, I would have shot myself in the head.

    Probably because you're comparing a $1000+ MacBookPro to a $500 budget windows computer. Higher end windows machines are just as stable as OSX machines. (Not to say that OSX doesn't have better software tools for certain media applications)

    This is great animation and it would seem it was catered to Tom's core audience. To say it's hilarious doesn't quite capture it.

    My Alienware laptop has more cats meow than a Mac pro, and it was cheaper.
