Great commercial! Sounds like a new keyboard may be needed after the upchuck incident.

I'm sure they'll request it, but I don't know if they will be successful. IIRC satire can get you around some copyright restrictions, as can education, both of which apply here.

But just in case, I've downloaded it, so now I can treasure it forever.
