The App Store Is Just Like the Civil Rights Movement, and Other Lessons We Can Learn From iFart

The Daily Show tells the harrowing tale of iFart vs Pull My Finger, showing us the faces behind the farts. It's predictable stuff until about 3:00, when Pull My Finger guy compares himself to Jackie Robinson. Then, it's pure art.

I can't tell what's worse: the sleazy app developers' blithe comparison of one of history's great civil rights heroes to a stupid novelty app, or his apparent pride in leading the way in the transformation of the App Store from a great resource into a gurgling software cesspool. I mean, the first one, obviously, but I'm a little peeved that the Daily Show has managed to sum up the App Store better than a thousand app roundups ever could. [via AllThingsD]
