I'm a PC, and I'm a Mac. And I'm a Vaio?

We're a little hazy on the message Sony's trying to get across with their "Vaio C Series, the non-PC PC" campaign, but make no mistake about it, despite this Apple "I'm a PC, and I'm a Mac" ad spoof, Vaios really truly are PCs. Especially stylish and expensive PCs, yes, but that doesn't make them any less unreliable (and we should know, we've owned more than our fair share of "non-PC PCs"). Anyhow, in their probably-not-meant-to-be-viral flash ad (shown after the break), Vaios are the cute, fun-loving girl to the stodgy and farting PC, and the annoying too cool for school Fonzie wannabe HEY!-ing Mac. Of course, the greatest irony of all here is that the original ad campaign often depicts the PC as a sad, silly Mac imitator. The tables certainly have turned.
