In something that is both dated, awkward, and just unintentionally hilarious, this Apple-produced video, "Blue Busters," takes shots at IBM using Ray Parker Jr's "Ghostbusters" as its reference point. Even better are the cameos by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, which puts them in the unique position of being innovators of dis videos.
