As 2008 comes to an end, we thought we’d look back at one of the best Apple spoofs from the last year. And the winner, hands down, is Grand Theft Auto IV.
GTA IV hit like a bombshell when it was released in April, received a ton of accolades, and subsequently won a few “Game of the Year” awards. But even in the midst of all the killing and violence, GTA IV came through with the great biting social commentary that we’ve come to expect from Rockstar. Check out these pics from the game (from an Internet cafe) which do a great job of mocking Apple and users of Apple products.
Check out the iMac, and the browsers close resemblance to Safari. But the real ‘gold’ lies in the description of this fictional company called “Fruit”:
Think Simple. Think Minimalism. Think Overpriced.
YOU ARE FINALLY LIVING. DESIGN HAS EVOLVED TO MAKE YOUR LIFE WORTH LIVING.
Funny shit. But it doesn’t end there.
The new IFRUIT Phone is advertised with the following tagline:
“No buttons. No reception. No Storage Capacity. All Ego”
Who would have thought GTA IV would have predicted the iPhone 3G reception fiasco a full 3 months ahead of time!
