It was Steve Jobs who said, "Hell froze over."

We didn't take his word for it at the time. Yes, Apple launched iTunes for Windows, but that does not constitute pig flying in our book.

So what does?

How about Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer with an iPod.

An avid Mac fan has taken the infamous Monkey Dance Boy video of Ballmer and repurposed it as an iPod commercial. The finished product is exceptional. (Caution! Stay close to volume controls.) It's complete with glowing sweat-stained Ballmer pits and maintains the same enthusiasm present in the original video.

Hopefully, Microsoft will take less offense to the ad than it did when the press described Ballmer as looking like Uncle Fester.
