Android fan posts video response to Apple's 'If you don't have an iPhone' ads
YouTube link for mobile viewing
Apple has tried (and failed) to let us know that if we don't have an iPhone we can't pay for our coffee, we don't have books in our pockets, we don't have an application store, and we don't have a tiny magical box filled with unicorn tears. OK, maybe they didn't say that last one. Android fan and filmmaker mmace decided that rather than shake his head like the rest of us slackers, he would rebut, and I think he's done quite the job! He also wants to urge everyone to join the fun and make their own video showing just what we do have when we're toting an Android phone. Now get the cameras out and get to work! Thanks, John!
Update: The new version of this begs for a second look. With a voiceover, this went from great, to incredible. Very nice work, my hats off to all involved.

Jerry is an amateur woodworker and struggling shade tree mechanic. There's nothing he can't take apart, but many things he can't reassemble. You'll find him writing and speaking his loud opinion on Android Central and occasionally on Twitter.
Edit: Damn Android Central filters. I have to edit my posts all the time now before they go through.
2) if you ask anyone who doesn't own a smartphone and is thinking of getting one and they see those ads they believe that only the iPhone can do what they say because of how it's worded, I know that 1st hand.
3) the music is generated by some software I have by Sonic
4) I'm from Yorkshire, my accent is awful, we don't even say the word "the" when we speak, I wasn't going to do a voiceover
5) for all those who took it light heartedly like it was intended and made comments on here or the youtube page, thank you
6) what's the spelling mistake? If you mean customise then it's spelled right, it's English
with the greatest line ever
too lazy to do it though
2. ended it with "If you have an Android phone, you have choice."
;) yeah, it's crappy looking and not well done, I had an hour to do the whole thing (film, edit, titles, music, render, upload)
If I'd have had more time I'd have used my pro camera that I use for weddings, used my glidetrack, my lightbox etc and if it would make you happy I'd have got my steadycam out too, but I never have the time, having a 1 and 4 year old sees to that
was it meant to be? no
did I lol? I lol'd

It had DRM when I owned my iPhone last year, plus all the music I bought in the past from iTunes has DRM with it, so we're both right, if you buy now there's no DRM, if you've bought in the past it's got DRM
