Conan O’Briant is known for spoofing items of pop culture that are currently making news. Now, it looks as though Conan O’Brien is looking to take on Apple, regarding their most recent unlocked iPhone 5 debacle. The company constantly has lost prototypes for their upcoming devices in bars, and after a recent incident, it appears as if Conan thought the time was right for him to make fun and light of the situation.
Instead of the individual who found the phone selling it to Gizmodo, they instead decided to hold onto it, prompting Apple to look for help from a local police department. The search that they received in conjunction with Apple was off the books, and was kind of something out of a movie. All of this reportedly happened in July in the San Francisco area with help from the San Francisco Police Department, with allegations that the San Francisco Police Department may have overstepped their bounds in what might not have been that big of a deal to anyone but Apple in the process. Now, predictably, Conan O’Brien has been able to make light of the situation on his popular talkshow, by making up a fictional vice president of marketing at Apple, who speaks on the situation and gives off a mob like God for the Apple Company.
This move was genuinely hilarious and as was it a lot of attention from the various mobile logs. It is good to see someone make fun of Apple and call them on the things that they do there seem so commonly throughout the mobile community. Overall, Apple has not commented on the spoof video Conan O’Brien released on his popular talk show, you can probably expect them to sweep it under the rug as they have done so many other controversies.
