I’m not sure exactly how many viewers regularly watch Conan O’Brien’s late-night TBS cable show, but “CoCo” might see his ratings plummet soon enough. I know that Android fans tend to get a bit overly passionate sometimes, especially when it comes to comparing their favorite gadgets with Apple’s iPhones or iPads, so Conan’s latest video might get him into some serious trouble.
In less than 90 seconds, CoCo, along with Nick Wood, VP Electronics at Samsung, Nigel Woodworth, VP at Dreamagination (say what?), and Stefan Jobes (clever, eh?) manage to rip Sammy apart, while trying to prove that Apple’s charges against the South Korean tech giant are complete and utter BS.
Apple fanboy? ISheep? I’m sure that Conan will be called that and many similar “affectionate” nicknames soon enough by Android fans, but the truth is the video is hilarious. I mean, I for one chuckled all the way through Nick Wood’s speech and burst into laughter when “Jobes” entered the scene. And, for crying out loud, it’s humor, guys, it doesn’t have to be true or fair, it just has to be funny.
Not only is the clip funny and witty, it also gives us some unprecedented insight into Samsung’s future plans and handling of current operations. Did you know, for example, that Sammy is planning to soon launch a Macrowave oven, VacPro vacuum cleaner, and a iWasher? I would buy one of those in a second! After consulting with one of Samsung’s new “smart guys”, of course.
As much as I enjoyed Conan’s video poking fun of “SamsApple” in more ways than I ever imagined (that “think slightly different” slogan is pure genius), I can’t help but want to seek some late-night retribution for Android. Leno, Letterman, anybody…?
