Hilarious Video: Conan O'Brien Pokes Fun at the iPhone 5
If yesterday’s humorous video experiment of passing the iPhone 4S as the iPhone 5 and then telling people to point out the differences from Jimmy Kimmel (ABC) wasn’t enough to get you laughing, then check out this one today from Conan O’Brien (TBS).
Since the iPhone 5 was officially set for pre-order today, it’s the big thing for comedy shows like Conan O’Brien to poke fun at. In Conan’s video, the humor is displayed as Conan claims Apple has loaned the show a pre-release iPhone 5 unit to show off to the audience and offer a "sneak peek" before the iPhone legitimately becomes available in about two weeks.
Spoiler alert – watch the video before reading any further.
As Conan’s “intern” named Coltin begins walking from the Apple Store to Conan’s studio with the iPhone 5 happily bagged up in his hand, he is abducted out of nowhere by two men in black suits from a black van that has the name ‘Samsung’ on the side of the vehicle, supposedly so Samsung can get a good look at this new device and what it has under the hood. This is symbolic of an FBI abduction as seen in the movies and makes it funny.
Under no circumstances is the video real (unlike yesterday's video), as it is 100% played out. Did you find the video as humorous as we did?

Your putting more meaning into the joke that there really is. Everyone knows samsung stole the iphone design from apple. That shows that samsung is stealin the iphone 5 because samsung has stolen apple patents. Thats it.

Haha I found it funnier when you explained the whole joke "This is symbolic of an FBI abduction as seen in the movies and makes it funny."

I fail to see how this is making fun of the iPhone 5.

How is this funny? This is actually a jab at Samsung. And not a very good one at that.
