I’m the Computer Man – Old Video Parodies Mac Support Techs

Well here’s something you don’t see every day. I’m the Computer Man is a bizarre, funny parody of Apple Macintosh tech support services. Shot with a 70s disco flavor and sung in Scatman John style, this is one unique Mac related video. Entertaining, in a cloyingly sweet way.

Moving your files all across the land

Some Photoshop photos and After Dark

Get your Microsoft Office, XPress your Quark
Millions of colors with a VRAM chip
How about a system crash that will make you flip?

A reader comment on YouTube notes that the video was created by the McCann Erickson Agency IT staff back around 1997. I hope they gave these guys some time off…

    Art would love to see this Video just go away, it is never going to happen now. I can not believe how many people have seen this now.

    Patrick, did you work on this piece?  It’s hilarious – and widely believed to be a real commercial around the internet!  Do you know the backstory?

    LOL. Imagine Steve Jobs stars in this ad :)

    The tune reminds me of the song “ScatMan”

    It’s actually Photoshop filters not photos.
