Funny skit or revealing social commentary?
Television host/comedian Jimmy Kimmel pulled a telling iPhone 5 prank on his show Jimmy Kimmel Live recently. He sent a reporter out on the streets of LA to ask people what they thought about the new iPhone 5, handing them the iPhone 4S instead.
People were easily fooled and praise for the latest iPhone was lavish. Comments ranged from, “It’s a little thinner. Looks like the screen’s a little bigger.”
“It seems a little bit faster.”
“Yah. Faster, lighter.” And so on.
While the studio audience has a good laugh, Kimmel calls it the “Emperor’s new phone”.
