Viral video: Meet 'The Computer Man.' You'll thank us later

By Dana Gagnon on January 9, 2013

"I'm the Macintosh Man with the virus scan..." is just a taste of the stellar rhymes you'll hear on this throwback "He's the Computer Man" video that's starting to go viral (at least in the TrainSignal offices).  The original YouTube thread says the video is circa 1998, and taking into consideration some of the software mentioned that seems about right, as hard as it is to believe it's only 15 years old. (Update: We've heard this video is actually part of a modern-day Mac parody series.) See for yourself:

Warning: It's actually a catchy little ditty. You might be singing it all afternoon.

For more computer throwback fun, check out this parody video we made in 2010, "Windows 3.1 Training: The Future of Computing":
