Heh, actually I happen to know the guy who made this parody. Here's the background story of his mockumercial:

Hello, this is Hunter – yes THE Hunter of the Mac Switch parody in question. Why should you believe me? Because my last name is spelled Cressall – and who would make up a thing like that?

First off, the parody can still be seen at: http://rochess.net/?p=Apple
So go there and see this man’s excellent work in avi compression and file serving. Oh, and please don’t slashdot the poor bastard.

Ok, second (sit down please) I am a professional Mac user. Yes. I use Macs every day for money. Sometimes I get paid tens of thousands of dollars for using our Macs. Ok, I don’t get tens of thousands of dollars myself…but my employer does. And the Macs are the conduit through which cash, more than not, copiously flows (we shoot and edit commercials for GM).

So why lash out at Mac by making all that crap up? Easy. I didn’t. All that ‘crap’ happened. Most of it happened THAT DAY. SOME of that crap happened editing THAT MOVIE. Why, you may ask, does YOUR Mac or YOUR Final Cut III not crash like ours? Are you cutting uncompressed component video for broadcast? Do you have half a terabyte of drive storage that is constantly between 60% and 80% full at all times? If the answer to these questions in ‘no’ then you aren’t using the Mac like we are using the Mac. We play hard and our Macs crash hard – just like PC’s.

The sad truth? Mac’s and PC are just about as stable as one another right now. We use them both. We rely on them both. We crash the hell out of them both. The only difference is that Microsoft and Intel know better than to call their systems crash proof. Why the hell do you think Microsoft made up the term ‘business solutions?’ Because they couldn’t say STABLE!

I don’t hate Macs per se; I hate their arrogant ads. (I hate Microsoft for a whole bunch of different reasons)

So Mac users, get off your high damn horse. Macs are computers…and the C in COMPUTER stands for crash. Get over it. And for any one else who wants a piece of me – unless you still own your original working AppleIIe with 80 column card and an Imagewriter II with three color ribbon, you aren’t qualified to tell me that I like or dislike Macs. I was Mac when Wolfenstein was a top down scroller.

Yes, I still have an Apple IIe. I have two in fact. They never die. Anyone else remember choplifter? Want to play??

Oh, and props to Chris Nuccio for his line ‘…you have to sneak up on a Mac…’ I thought that captured a certain passé le mutard.

You know, there is so much I could say about this guy, but I'm not gonna. I'll just leave one little bit to remember...

Amen to that, Bossk. If he's using 1/2 a terabyte of storage, why doesn't he just upgrade to a workstation?

Hehe, I agree with you guys, he's way off line since it's obviously his companie's fault not spending enough money on their equipment. I still think the clip is funny though, even if it's not the entire truth.

Oh, I agree that it is funny. In fact, to a degree, I can agree with some of it. But all computers have glitches, even PCs. Hence my comment about glass houses.

I did find myself laughing to some of the video. Until I felt the urge to take the G4 tower and swing it into the guy's head.

Oh, actually he points out that he is not a mac-hater in the comment I quoted. He just hated Apple's arrogant "Switch to Mac" ad-campaign. As far as I understood it, his main statement is that both platforms have their issues, like you said (hence the slogan "crash different").
