Weird LG Optimus Pad commercial features kicking Steve Jobs Street Fighter style

The company that is not a stranger to weird commercials with villains named Applehead (also embedded below just for kicks), and is splurging on huge neon signs on Times Square regardless of last year's Q3 financial results in the mobile division, has a fun section in one of its LG Optimus Pad tablet promo videos.
We won't tell you what it is, you can see for yourself at around 1:00 in the video below, we'll just say that it ends up badly for a single-core fighter with the face of Apple's CEO, kicked by the dual-core Optimus. Make of it what you will, but it looks like weird commercials are the norm at this year's MWC, Sony Ericsson notwithstanding.
It's just kind of lame... if you don't want to be a poor man's iPhone then stop reminding people of Apple. It's kind of like in sales where you don't diss your competition because it makes you look bad. If your phone is so awesome, it should be able to stand on its own without name dropping...

the name dropping is needed because iphone users are sheeple, they need to be reminded they have an inferior product to knock their ego down.
