Giant iPad 2 attacks in attempt at world dominance!



Have you heard? The iPad 2 is coming on Wednesday. And now that we're past the point of wondering when and if there will be an announcement, we can sit back and just soak in all the silliness.

This video, produced by Evan Larimore, features a couple of guys who see a giant iPad in the sky and just as they begin taking pictures of it (with a phone that isn't an iPhone) the iPad plays a Mac boot tone and a hal-2000.jpgHAL eye from 2001: A Space Odyssey starts shooting lasers at them. Think of Cloverfield meets Independence Day. Maybe they were being punished for using the wrong phone. Has anyone contacted The Borg? Resistance really is futile, you know?
