In 2004 Apple Computers began running a series of distinctive ads for the iPod with silhouetted figures on solid-color backgrounds. The ads feature popular music and musicians using Apple products. The ads have appeared in television, print, and mosaic forms. In parody of these ads many ytmnd fads have been recolored to resemble genuine Apple advertisements. The image is usually coupled with the song "Jerk it Out" by Caesers, which was featured in the original commercials.
In 2006 a YTMND in this style was made as part of the The Colbert Report's Green Screen Challenge, where viewers edited a video of Stephen Colbert playing with a lightsaber. The video made in this style, which can be viewed as a YTMND, aired on The Colbert Report later that year on September 28.
