Video: ‘Shit Android fanatics say’ does a hilarious job at making fun of Android fanbois


Some people buy smartphones because they want to have a device that excels at a particular set of features. Other people buy smartphones because they’re a part of some cult. You know the kind of people we’re talking about. The iPhone fanbois, the Android fanatics, the Nokia people who will steal your first born child if you happen to say something even remotely negative about the Finnish handset maker. We don’t know why people go to such extremes to defend their smartphone purchase, but whatever, it’s not like we can do anything to fix their sick and demented minds. What we can do however is laugh at them. The video below is called “Shit Android fanatics say”. It runs through something you’ve likely heard from an individual who is more concerning about playing with their Android device than taking a shower. It’s funny, it’s short, it’s worth a watch.

How can you avoid being the type of person portrayed in the video above? It’s not that hard. You don’t make fun of someone because of what shirt they wear, or because of the color of their skin, or what church they go to, right? Because if you did then society would cast you out as some sort of relic of the past when racism or religious extremism was tolerated. There’s nothing wrong with being loyal to a software platform, just don’t wave your opinions in front of everyone’s faces and especially don’t try and make people feel bad about the purchases they’ve made.

Now just to be fair, there’s also a two part video being shared across the internet called “Shit Apple fanatics say”. As you can guess, it’s the same idea, but with the tables turned.

Here’s a challenge: Why don’t some of you Nokia and Windows Phone fans get together and make your own parody video?
