Hilarious Watch Dogs parody shows the game’s hacker hero in an Apple Store


Everyone is talking about vast open world hacker game Watch Dogs since its release earlier this week, and that means one inevitable thing: it was only going to be so long before the parodies started rolling in.

This Machinima.com parody of the game imagines a scenario in which Watch Dogs‘ main protagonist is forced to ditch his smartphone — which allows him to hack into various electronic devices tied to the city’s central operating system — for an iPhone. For most people, switching to iPhone is a definite upgrade. For Watch Dogs’ Aiden Pearce, however, it’s a less clear-cut decision.

Cue hilarious scenes taking place in an Apple Store.

This is the first new Machinima.com video after a brief lull, and it’s well worth checking out — if you’re a Watch Dogs fan, an iPhone owner, or both.
