The iPhone 5 has not only made news about its latest features and expectations, but its making its rounds on the comedy circuit and late night television.
Leading up to its release, a parody of Apple's Keynote was released a couple weeks ahead of the Sept. 12 launch, parodying the traditional white background and the reasons people use the iPhone's features. The video was created by Adam Sacks starring Avery Monsen and has been seen 7.8 million times on YouTube.
Following the release, Jimmy Kimmel wasted no time in showing random people the smartphone on his ABC late night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live," except the iPhone on display was the iPhone 4S. The show led people to believe they were holding the new smartphone.
Fellow late night host Conan O'Brien teased that his show managed to get the new iPhone and it was on its way to the "Conan" studio. Footage was shown of one of the "Conan" interns walking with the iPhone 5 but would then be kidnapped by men coming out of a truck labeled with the Samsung name.
For those unaware, Apple and Samsung are both in court for a patent infringement case, alleging that one company stole ideas of the smartphone from the other.
The parodies of the iPhone's success, and other Apple products dates back several years, notably with a "MADtv" sketch featuring cast member Michael McDonald as then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs announcing new Apple products in 2007, the same year the original iPhone was released.
