Sources at Intel indicate that the monolithic chip manufacturer is set to launch an advertising run that plays off of Apple’s slogan “What’s an Intel chip doing in a Mac? A whole lot more than it’s ever done on a PC.”
In a somewhat disturbing sign, however, Intel has slightly altered the slogan.
Intel’s attitude has some Mac users concerned.
“I’m not sure I like their tone,” said Shawn King, host of Your Mac Life. “It sounds a little adversarial.”
Still, King indicated that he would sell Sly Marton to some angry Saracens for a MacBook Pro, assuming the situation arose.
“She’d understand,” King indicated.
While some thought Intel might be employing a tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign aimed at attracting highly educated and media-savvy purchase decision makers to Intel-based Macs, a company spokesperson indicated that was not the case.
“BUY IT, MAGGOT!” said Intel spokesperson Lars Grunstall, towering over reporters menacingly and apparently referring to the Intel Core Duo iMac.
“I WILL SQUASH YOU MAC-USING PANSIES LIKE YOU’RE BUGS!” Grunstall added, flexing his barrel-like torso until veins popped from his voluminous muscles.
Grunstall then ate a bottle for no apparent purpose other than to show the depths of his ferocity.
Apple declined to comment for this story, but was seen checking out a Charles Atlas ad in the back of a comic book.
