Jimmy Kimmel pulls the same iPhone prank, but this time with an iPad mini

0. phoneArena posted on 12 Sep 2013, 00:26

We've already seen the same jokes around the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c announcements recycled by the amateur YouTube crews, so why wouldn't we expect the same thing from the professionals? Jimmy Kimmel has basically run this prank twice already, but this time around he cranked it up a bit by telling people that the iPad mini was actually the newly announced iPhone 5s...

You have to lick it...
Before you stick it...

"It" being your hand in your wallet to dump out too much money for the same phone, again!

I could have never imagined to say this, but dammit, people are stupid.

Someday I want one of these prank videos to include someone with a GOOD phone, and be like "I don't care about the new model, I got a [insert model here, like Lumia]!

That is how Apple has been successful in making a fool out of consumers. An average consumer in USA is not very smart. If they can't differentiate between iPad & iPhone, forget differentiating between iPhone5 & iPhone5S.. Dumb people.. They believe on any crap that Apple tells them & they buy their over-priced devices..(no wonder revenue of Apple is so high even after lesser sales compared to Android devices).
I don't think it is fake.. YouTube has lot of videos about dumb american people. For example, in a survey, when it was asked about Obama. Reply was that he is evil & pathetic. Several of them didn't know he is their own president. In another video, people failed to reply where food & vegetables come from. Lot of people replied "from Can". LOL.. & who can forget that famous video where gal couldn't tell "how far u wud go in 1 hr if u travel at 60mph"

Just to clarify it's not just in America, people are dumb everywhere.

Funny video, but remember we are on phone arena because we know something about mobile technology and we can have discussions about pros and cons of any new device or service. Truth is we are the minority and the Bay majority will go with what they believe is trending. I'm sure I could convince some of my technology ignorant friends that my old HTC Touch Pro 2 is a current phone with its full querty physical keyboard and stylus! But I digress...Also what comes to mind is some guy in Japan is going to wait in line for 10 days just so he can get one of the new iPhone 5's

I know not everyone is informed as us but surely people can't be that oblivious... some of the things are just common sense stuff. Its clearly a much much bigger device so why would you say it's smaller and lighter. 1 guy even claimed to be a huge apple fan so surely he would know that's an iPad mini.

I agree these people are stupid, but I do wonder how long and how many people they had to film, before getting these idjits....
