Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC

Among the few really impressive internet shows to come out of Youtube is called “I’m A Marvel/DC”, on the ItsJustSomeRandomGuy channel —which parodies Macintosh "Hi, I'm a Mac...and I'm a PC" TV commercials... using Marvel and DC Comics superhero action figures.
The man and woman behind the curtain of this innovative and well produced low budget web series are Michael Agrusso and Brinna Li.
With dreams of working in the comic book industry as writer and illustrator, respectively, these two artists devised a new comic storytelling format in March 2007.
Like Toyfair magazine’s Twisted Mego Theater, but on video, action figures become characters in a bizarre and highly amusing play.
Michael and Brinna not only stage & edit all the action, design sets and clothing and props, music and sound effects… but they also provide all character voices!
The series alternates between scenes mimicking the Mac commercials-- where the characters comment on each other’s movies, and original narratives mixing drama, comedy and adventure.
