iPhone 5 parody promo video ridicules Apple’s announcement

iPhone 5 parody promo video ridicules Apple’s announcement
The Apple iPhone 5 is almost here. Apple announced it last week, the lines are already forming ahead of its Friday launch, and preorder sales records have been shattered. But while it’s hard to make fun with that many sales, Apple’s announcement full of hyperboles and the typical set of funny adjectives is as good as it gets for the folks from The Gentleman.

These are the same guys that went viral with their parody iPhone 4 promo and later ridiculed the iPad 2. Now, it’s the iPhone 5’s turn. The phone that has been thicker, heavier and with a twice slower processor! No, not really, but at least Siri can tell you if your wife is cheating. Plus, there is a couple of more ways the iPhone is so amazing. Check them all out in the video below.

Also, I wonder if Apple will be taking those apps down now that they are "duplicate features".

I agree but one thing they didnt metion is 28mp panoramar, dont get me qrong i have a sgs3 and is great but the panorama is not so great on it, the picture is small not compared to the stills that the sgs3 takes. The iphone showed the full picture size that was better than before, of course not many people take panorama shots and if is 28 mp you will need way more storage if you want to make sure you have space for other tasks since no expandable memory, i guess just waiting for the next nexus might be the answer, waitig to see new hardqare and better camera now.

Ok, maybe its me but anyone who thinks its a great idea to stand in line for a phone four days before it comes out got issues. There is something seriously wrong with that no matter if its a phone, game, whatever.

Going to the bathroom, taking a shower, getting food and their job is the least of their worries apparently.

Can you imagine a coworker saying "Yeah man, cashing in on my PTO so I can wait in line for the new iPhone. Who needs Hawaii?" Smfh....

Totally agree man... Seriously, don't these people have a life, like work, being with family or something else, besides queuing for a phone for days? Whenever I read about people actually doing that, I can't help but wonder something is psychologically wrong with these people!
