Conan O’Brien has poked fun at Apple’s product videos a number of times in the past, but this time he’s on Apple’s side. Instead, Samsung is his victim, and the Korean company is mocked for its copycat ways in Conan’s latest parody skit.
The video features Samsung’s supposed Vice President of Electronics, Nick Wood, who attempts to defend Samsung and convince you it isn’t guilty of copying Apple’s technology. Wood compares the iPhone to Samsung’s original Galaxy S, and the iPad to the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Both of which look remarkably similar side-by-side, but Wood maintains that there are some major differences, like “the grayer edge” surrounding the Galaxy phone.
Wood then takes a look at Samsung’s home appliances, including its Macrowave oven, Vac Pro vacuum cleaner, and its iWasher washing machine with “scroll wheel controls.”
Wood insists that if you don’t believe Samsung’s ideas are all original, you can visit one of its retail stores and talk to a Samsung Smart Guy.
My favorite bit is the ending, which features Samsung’s supposed Vice President of Dreamagination, who explains how Samsung stays “so original… so innovative.”
It’s very simple really — we stay true to the vision of Samsung founder Stefan Jobes.
