Remember that Microsoft i-Pod parody? The one that imagined how clunky, wordy and dull the packaging for the MP3 player would be if the PC giant created it? I’m sure you assumed, like the rest of us, that the film was devised by some inflamed Apple revolutionary in an underground lair filled with other like-minded, Mac-obsessed hipsters with creative haircuts intent on overthrowing the Bill Gates empire.

But guess what?  Microsoft made the video! It turns out those wacky dudes in Seattle have a great sense of humor about themselves. Unfortunately now that we know Microsoft created it, it’s just not as cool anymore.

REMAKING OUT: The Re-Makes We’d Like to See


Dimension Films is adapting Welcome Back, Kotter for the big screen, but with…wait for it…Ice Cube in the title role.

And what about remaking Dallas, but with Jennifer Lopez!  Forget JR, just wait until America has to wrap its mind around "Who shot J. Lo?"

In celebration of Hollywood’s willingness to put forth that extra bit of creative energy and originality by re-making every movie and television show in existence, your friends here at Best Week Ever are starting a new segment in which we beg and plead for the moviemakers to microwave the entertainment WE’D like to see again and again.

For this week’s installment, in honor of the above announcements: TV Shows reimagined…but with black people instead of white people!
