Ideate This: Dell Takes a Swipe at IBM in Funny Web Video

A new web video campaign from Dell called “IT Through the Decades” takes an overt swipe at IBM’s most recent television advertising campaign. The video, which is embedded below, hasn’t yet been promoted by Dell, though we were tipped off that a companion site for the campaign is coming. It also stars G4 TV’s Olivia Munn.

Dell is taking a similar tack to Apple, whose Mac vs. PC videos not only poke fun at their chief rival, but also have become viral hits following Apple’s decision to put them on the web.

Note: Though Dell has purchased ads on this site in the past via FM Publishing, we have no advertiser relationship with Dell, nor are we being compensated in any way for showing this video — we just thought it was funny. We hope you do too.
