When Apple first released its "What's a Computer" ad (see original below), you just knew it would rub some people up the wrong way. In fact, the only surprising thing is that it's taken nearly three months for this hilarious parody, courtesy of YouTube channel Zebra Corner, to do the rounds online.

The OG ad shows a kid, seemingly from Brooklyn, in a grassy backyard after a day of hanging out with friends and doing school projects on her iPad Pro. A neighbor asks her what she's doing on her computer, to which she replies, "What's a computer?" It's a clever (kinda) way of showcasing the versatility of the iPad, suggesting that traditional laptops and computers are so outdated the child doesn't even know what they are.

In Zebra Corner's parody (see video above starting at 0:50), however, things are much different. A comedian known as "Mahk" stands in as the neighbor who asks the child what they're doing. When she replies, he gets out a hose and sprays the iPad with water while saying things like "oh sorry kid, did get your comput-, I mean, whatever your call it, your fucking iwhistle or whatever" and "don't be such a fucking asshole next time kid." Watch it in full above, and the original below.
