Conan O'Brien weighs in on #Bendgate with a hilarious video

Conan O'Brien weighs in on #Bendgate with a hilarious video
There is no doubt that Conan O'Brien is one of us. By that, we mean that the writer, comedian and talk show host is also a huge smartphone fanatic. Not too many late night hosts could understand the dynamics of the Samsung-Apple feud. The latest video by O'Brien is an instant classic as it takes the Apple iPhone 6 Plus and turns it into a phallic symbol.

"There's nothing more embarrassing than a flaccid phone," says the voice over announcer as we get an eyeful of what is supposed to be an iPhone. Instead of talking to the Doctor, the announcer suggests that we should talk to our carrier about Samsung Galaxy phones, which are "rigid and stiff when you buy them."

If you don't grasp the joke yet, let's just say that disabling the ringtone and enabling "vibrate" has a whole new meaning after viewing this clip, which we're sure that you will do multiple times today just to get a rise laugh.

Apparently money doesn't buy intelligence. If you thank the only possible reason for people not liking something is jealousy, then you're an idiot. I don't like them because of their business practices and a bad experience with their "stellar" customer service. But you ignore any reasonable issues people might have with them and make it about a class issue, wealthy vs poor. Being wealthy doesn't necessarily make you better, it only means you can buy things others can't, nothing more than that. I can afford to buy an iPhone, but I choose not to because of the aforementioned reasons and also that it doesn't suit my needs as well as other products do. You seem to be the kind of person who values people by how wealthy they are, and that's just sad. But if that's how you really see things, and you have a regular iPhone, then you must be inferior if you don't have one of those jewel encrusted models, right? SMH

You're high out of your mind if you really believe only NINE phones have bent.

"Was" is past tense. I think you mean "is currently."

9 offical report to apple not in the world, and most have not shipped yet and what about the rest of the world and the millions. just wait. just like the software it all comes crumbling to high and the gravity becomes to much at the base.
