“I want you to imagine your favorite pair of headphones… now throw them in the garbage!”
So begins this funny parody of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from popular YouTuber and longtime Apple critic jacksfilms. The entire video is under two minutes long but it’s packed to the brink with jokes. You’ll definitely want to plug in your headphones (before ditching them for a pair of AirPods) and settle in to enjoy the experience.
In case you can’t watch the video here’s a quick recap. The parody dives right in, mocking Apple’s claim that it took “courage” to remove the headphone jack. It also notes that not calling the new wireless earbuds “Air Buds” is a huge missed opportunity.
But the highlight of this video is the coining of a new phrase that we may hear a lot moving forward thanks to the iPhone 7’s missing headphone jack. Get ready to respond to the question “Hey bro, can I borrow your dongle?” once the new smartphone launches later this month and people quickly start losing the included 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapter.
To be fair, the iPhone 7 offers some solid improvements over last year’s model, including a water-resistant design and a faster processor that should improve battery life. The iPhone 7 Plus also adds a second rear camera for 2x optical zoom and bokeh photography. We’ll have a more detailed look at Apple’s new products once they’re released, but we’re happy to kick back and enjoy this funny parody for now.
