No.
I was being sarcastic. I probably should have clarified that, sorry.

That's generally the Apple fanboy consensus when comparing the Apple OS to a Windows PC.

"I prefer a Windows based PC to an Apple or Linux distribution for *insert reasons*
"Yeah well Mac's don't get viruses"
"You know, Mac's aren't the only PC's that have Apple OS on them. You can install it on any PC, as it is just the operating system"
"Yeah right if it doesn't have a giant apple on it then it isn't a mac apple computertron!!"

Also, lol @ video above me. Forgot about that.

I urge you to watch the video again and listen to the wording. It was never implied that Macs don't get WINDOWS virus, it was said that "There are thousands of virus' for PC's....but not Mac's".
