Nikonians is the Smithsonian of Nikon knowledge. If there is a question they can't answer, I want to see the question.

I"m surprised it took this long for a parody to make the rounds. I prefer the original as the images are much more compelling.

...and of course he gave him a Nikon, what else is there

Doesn't seem much like a spoof or parody at all. Seems more like someone was inspired by the Chrysler ad to do something similarly emotional about photographers, but then kind of got lost in the effort. I think it basically falls flat as a result - not funny, not emotional, and somewhat unfocused. I was hoping for an independently made home run. But it's let down by poor writing, a nasal and mediocre voiceover, and some uninspiring photos. Didn't notice much in the way of Nikon, but I sure noticed the big Canon zoom.

Still, at least he tried something.

Chrysler seems to have found a hot ad company. The new Dodge "Dark Side of Ram" campaign will be seriously racy.

That was pretty much my take as well.

Interesting concept, and it had some potential. But they never took it anywhere, never captured any of the "it" of the original.

They could have played it for humor, or they could have played it straight, and either way might have worked. Instead, it was just an un-inspired copy. Nothing about it popped.
