Sometimes new seasons of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are preceded by a series of funny and original promos.
Apple spoof "PC" promos ("Mac vs. PC")Edit
- "Post-coital" (Mac and Dennis)
- "Pervert Clown" - two versions (Mac and Frank)
- "Possibly Contagious" (Who?)
- "Perfectly Symmetrical" (Charlie)
- "Pretty Cameltoe" (Mac and Dee)
- "Bad Dream" (The whole Gang's "Orgy"-promo)
In these vids, each member of The Gang gives his (or her) own transcript for abbreviation "PC". For instance, Frank says what in Philadelphia it stands for "Pervert Clown", or in Charlie's mind it's "Perfectly Symmetrical" -
Here's some quotes:
- Mac: "Hey, I'm Mac!"; Dennis: "And I'm PC."; Mac: "You PC?"; Dennis: "Yeah!.. Post-COITAL... Would you go grab a bucket? And wash my BALLS!.. ".
- Mac: "Hi, I'm Mac."; Frank: "And I'm PC."; Mac: "PC?"; Frank: "Pervert Clown. Heheheh... "; Mac: "I told you not to do the "pervert clown", Frank. That's not gonna get people to watch. You look like a psychopath!".
- Mac: "Hi, I'm Mac."; Dennis: "And I'm Dennis. (looks around) Is this my dream or yours?"; Mac: "I think it's yours."; Dennis: "Okay... Well, get out! 'Cause, uh... I'm looking for SOMETHING ELSE... "; Mac: "Alright, fine... (leaving)"; Dennis: "(closing eyes) Oh, yeah... Here she comes... "; Dee: "Hi, Dennis... "; Dennis: "Huh? No! Oh, God, no... Look... No, you're my sister. I do not wanna have sex with my sister!.. "; Dee: "(starts undressing) You gotta wake up... (Charlie and Frank shows up)"; Charlie: "Hey man! Sorry we're late, man... Look, you gotta stop having these dream, dude... I have to deal with Mac - Mac's too hairy, he's too hairy... "; Mac: "(returns) I knew there was a reason I was here!.. "; Dennis: "Oh, God... ".

Here's some slogans from this trick advertising campaign: "FX Orders a Brand-New Gang for Sunny!"; "For seven seasons, the Sunny cast was on fire. Now? They are just fired. It's an all new day in Philly on October 11 at 10p only on FX".
The Season 9 promos parodied Swedish art films (specifically those by Ingmar Bergman).
The tenth season promos included an rocket ship themed trailer and '80s hair band cast photos.
The Eleventh Season had promo images that parodied the 1960 film The Village of the Damned.
The 12th season had promo images that parodied the 1965 classic The Sound of Music
For the 13th season, the promotional material parodied the Friday the 13th franchise with the gang running away from the killer, presumably Dennis.
The promotional material for Season 14, illustrated by Rob McElhenney's brother Patrick, takes inspiration from "The Gang Wrestles for the Troops" in addition to the WWE PPV event WrestleMania.
