Apple announces "Nothing" in a hilarious parody video, and other cracking skits of the iPhone 5 keynote

Apple announces
A few parody videos of Apple's iPhone 5 announcement have popped up, but the one where Apple announces "Nothing. Because we earned it" takes the cake. Done great in the styling of recent Apple keynotes, a guy looking suspiciously close to Phil Schiller, says that this year Cupertino has "Nothing" to announce, because "we are good, we don't need any more of your money right now".

Taking a well-deserved break, he continues, to focus on three favorite things at Apple - sleep, family time and golf - will allow current customers not to feel duped by every new product release, and they will close the Chinese factories where those gadgets are made, so it's a double whammy. Best thing about "Nothing" - it's free. Watch the whole skit below, and make sure you stay for the "one more thing" announcement. 

We've also rounded up a few other notable parodies, with Jimmy Kimmel peddling an iPhone 5 predecessor at unsuspecting passers by, and asking them to comment on the "new features", which they do. The last one is from our loyal reader Ricky, the Android Guy (thanks for the contribution), who examines the things you can't still do on the iPhone 5. Well, taking pictures while shooting video is now possible, but the rest is zen.

iPhone 5 reminds me of...... "The man has only one look for Christ's sake! Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigre? They're the same face! Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!"

I think he specifically said shoot videos "@1080p" and take photos. From that I take it the iphone will shoot a lower res video if you want to take photos too. But I don't know myself. I don't waste my time researching what the iphony can't do. I have GSIII to occupy my time right now.

I agree with you, the video is wrong... At lease 4 or 5 things he said out of 6 you CAN do with the iphone. He forgot to mention one thing about what iphone really cannot do compared with the Galaxies, is that iphone cannot simply be made out of junkyard PLASTIC.

I cant't say I disagree with any of these parodies. I especially like what Jimmy Kimble did. To prove a point. No one ( typical iPhone user ) will know the difference 4 4s or 5 to them its still the same. and this phone will sell like no tomorrow because Apple has got that cult following and Steve Jobs is seen as Apple fans (risen) messiah. I think if I could put it in simple words is that " I can't believe people would buy the same exact phone not once not twice but three times. " but hats the power of brand marketing. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the phone but to me the best was the iPhone 4 the 4s and the 5 are basically the same phone. But to each his own.

The Kimmel vid was sad. Those iPhone users that had the same phone in their hand and still couldn't tell it was a joke... The rap video was funny as hell and so true "just buy, don't ask why. You know you're gonna get the iPhone 5"

The videos were all hilarious except the last one. In fact, the last one was pretty bad. Only one or two of the points were actually even things that mattered (the video playing while doing other things and the resolution). The rest were either just gimmicks (waving hand to change songs (who actually uses that?) and "waking" the voice assistant by voice (he still has to hit the unlock key first and then say the command. Waking Siri is even faster than that)). And the photos during video is completely false. the iPhone 5 can in fact take 1080p video and take a photo in the middle. Not sure why he even put that one in the video.

How do you change songs waving you hand like that? I tried and it didn't do it. Anybody knows?
