“Banned” iPhone promo spoofs hit YouTube

Everyone loves to poke fun at Apple when a new product is released. Around this time, we’re used to seeing videos of people imitating Sir Jony Ive and talking about a product while hinting that the new product is essentially nothing new. In the latest videos released on YouTube, John Elerick pokes fun at the latest iPhones, the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s….

Apple Status page spoofed by Joy of Tech [Image]

Apple has been having its fair share of problems recently, including the major outage of the Developer Center. Well, to poke fun at it all (as it usually does), Joy of Tech has made its own status images or sorts, obviously making fun of Apple’s Developer System Status page that was launched post-hacking. Included in the list (seen above) are things such as…

“Introducing the iDroid” spoof imagines Tim Cook and Sergey Brin announcing an iPhone/Android crossover [video]

I came across the video above today and wasn’t too sure if it was supposed to be funny, or not. I guess that’s partly down to me being a prematurely grumpy old man, and the fact that it dares portray Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, in an unusually youthful and energetic light. To me, to get a spoof right, at least get someone who looks like they guy they’re…

April Fool? Spoof iWatch launch uploaded to YouTube [video]

If you’re tired of searching and waiting for Apple to announce the iWatch launch date, your wait is over. At least, if you pretend for one second that the video promo above is real.

Danish brewing company Carlsberg is lining up an advertising campaign for its latest beverage range, Somersby Cider, which uses an ingenious spoof of an Apple Store. The advert, created by UK firm Fold7 is the most creative Apple spoof I have seen in a long time, and certainly deserves a minute of your time. Leave your thoughts and comments below, be…

Parody Surface ad plays off Apple’s official iPad mini ad [Video]

Have you seen the iPad mini ad? It isn’t the video above, in case you watched that before reading. The iPad mini ad shows an iPad playing the piano in GarageBand, then pans over to an iPad mini playing higher keys also in GarageBand. Well, someone decided to take that and turn it into a Microsoft Surface commercial, which you can view above. If you haven’t…

Introducing the 8.8″ iPad mini mega – funny CONAN spoof [video]

CONAN frequently pokes fun at Apple products and promotional videos/ads, and this time out is no different. Introducing the iPad mini mega, the 8.8″ device and a slew of others. It’s almost like how it would be if Apple decided to follow the Motorola DROID marketing and product release style. Am I right? Kudos to 9to5Mac for spotting…

“Banned iPad mini promo” spoof is hilarious [video]

Every time Apple launches a new product, the guys over at the ooJLEoo YouTube channel release a “banned promo” similar to the official Apple one, except with a few “truths” added in and less marketing nonsense. My favorite part: “You get more, for less… minus the Retina display and faster processer.”   I also particularly like the “it’s the future,…
