The setup: The way to a man’s heart is not through his stomach, and definitely not through sexy lingerie. Not in Silicon Valley at least, where the way to nab a man is with a Mac. A Mac in your top, in fact. That’s what two YouTube songstresses croon about in their “Dick in a Box” spoof that rocketed up the charts on YouTube last week. “Mac in My Top” follows in the tradition of quality spoofs of wildly popular viral videos, such as the “Lazy Ramadi” and “Lazy Muncie” takeoffs on last year’s viral video hit “Lazy Sunday.”

The source: The video was posted by YouTube users “Randi and Jen.” Go to Randiandjen.com to read the lyrics. Here’s a teaser: “Not gonna wear fancy lingerie. `Cause that doesn’t work down in San Jose. Not gonna give you a sexy massage. You’re busy with your startup down in our garage.”

The hits: “How to Get a Guy in Silicon Valley” landed on YouTube on Jan. 7 and had reached more than 1 million views by Jan. 10.
