Okay, so maybe this doesn't directly relate to Android, but man, do we think some Android fans are going to like this one. With all respect to Apple, most of us are familiar with their promotional videos which can be a little, let's say, "predictable" at times. Beloved late night host Conan O'Brien created this mock iPad 2 video that... well, let's just let the clip speak for itself:

Will's typical, run-of-the-mill story is that of 'classically-trained actor turned Android smartphone and tablet writer.' If you catch him quoting Shakespeare, it's not because he misses it, but because he desperately wants his Masters in drama to count towards something.

Chicago; with his fair maid'n Jess and his
trusty cur, Ziggy.

    Isn't this what actually happens in the real world?

    Eviscerated? Strong enough title word? I'm an Apple fan and found it funny.

  • WayneNurr

    Funny, true. Doesn't mean the product is inferior or less appealing though.

  • Major Fanboy

    Ok, I'm the biggest Apple fanboy around (but have nothing in particular against Android).... but I'm sorry... This is FUNNY!


    Thanks for sharing!

    'Eviscerated'? Hardly. I love Apple and I love Conan. This was a pretty funny video lol

  • Dafyyd K Jones

    I'm on my iPhone and I can't se the video, is it in Flash?

    • Will Shanklin

      I'm not sure if that was an earnest question or another dig at Apple, but if the former then yes, it is a Flash video.

    • abeee

      that's an awesome response.

      made me giggle

  • Mike

    Just search in the youTube app for Conan iPad 2

  • Big T

    Lmao I like Apple products, but this was just flat out hilarious!

  • Gonz

    I tried to watch the video on my iPad too and I can't see it either. Gawd I can't wait for my Euro Xoom with flash to arrive!

  • Christian

    Hahaha~ okay, that was just mean spirited but I'm just glad that not ALL of the media is fawning over Apple's form over function way of presenting their products.

    loving of a verizon iPhone commercial plays before the clip

    The title to this post is so melodramatic it makes me want to light myself on fire, and jump off of a tall building.

    Eviscerated... no. Mocked the launch... yep. Pretty funny bit, it's been done already a few times though.

  • Tony

    I'm a big Apple-product fan too, have iPad, Mac and three generations of iPhone. I hate Apple as a company though, they just love the smell of their own farts. Spot on! :D

    The funny thing is, the iPad2 really does suck.
