Following in their mocking of the Final Cut Pro X (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/06/24/conan-obrien-mocks-final-cut-pro-x/), Conan O'Brien made fun of Apple's losing (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/08/31/apple-loses-another-iphone-prototype-at-a-bar/) another iPhone prototype at a bar in July.

As first posted (http://appleheadlines.com/2011/09/08/conan-makes-fun-of-apple-losing-the-iphone-5/) by AppleHeadlines, here's the clip:

can't agree more... cheap shot at getting some publicity. Last one was little better though.

I am not an apple fanboy but was I supposed to laugh lol. Some people just shouldn't try to be funny.

I think it just goes to show that the haters or competitors truly do have no creativity lol

It was okay. However, the situation really is funny. With Apple losing another iPhone, they should be made fun of.

Can you cite a company who have this kind of secrecy? Their competitors don't care about it (you saw their prototypes everywhere) neither their consumers doesn't have this kind of anticipation to see what's coming. Anyway, Apple security is still awesome, why? manufacturers reportedly doing iPhone 5 but we still don't have legit photos leaked out. So, Apple will announce it again with a bang.

Lighten up folks - we're not curing cancer here.

Apple is not going to be damaged by some satire. ;)

Whether you thought it was funny (I did), Apple will survive having a few laughs (or not) at it's expense. :p

Conan O'D-bag. Unfunny.

Apples so pompous & arrogant they can't even laugh at themselves. Everyone's so sensitive & angry. Lighten up, you'll live longer.

Besides the whole thing could very well be a stunt. Anything for headlines. Apples like a little kid demanding attention.

It's not like Apples all ready to fail. They've got an obscene amount of money, so no sympathy required. Let's be real here.

Now here's something we can all agree with. LD is brilliant.

To everyone who is being all serious: lighten up, your still aloud to laugh even though their poking fun at apple. We'll still know you like apple ;)

I have to say I didn't find Conan's monologue particularly funny since he left NY a couple of years ago. I much prefer Craig Ferguson to be honest.

About the skit itself, well you can't be funny every night.

Haters? Competitors? Conan isn't exactly hired by Samsung. Heck, he may even enjoy an iPhone 4. But that shouldn't stop someone from poking fun when given the opportunity.

"aloud to laugh" = "laughing aloud" with the same meaning of "aloud"?

There are some serious grammar lessons needed here, haha.

Indeed.

THe joke would be remotely funny if it was confirmed that it had in fact happened. Then again I doubt that detail really matters to Conan

I'm a Coco fan, but I didn't really find it that funny either.
I thought the best part was the last guy! lol

Although I don't get why everyone is attacking Conan. It was a group of comedians making the bit, and Conan wasn't even in it. You guys realize that hosts for shows like these don't make every single joke...right?. This is the job of the writers...

It's a comedy show, not the 6 o'clock news. They are allowed to distort the truth for a joke. You realize that those funny stories that comedians usually tell aren't always true, right?

What a larf! Apple's 'public expression' perfectly played out and then tweaked so well you could actually cringe at the realization.

Well done folks and thanks for the laugh!

Lighten up folks. It's a joke. In my view, a very funny joke. Apple is secretive. They know that they are secretive and my guess is that this video has been shared with half the Apple employees in Cupertino.

I remember the SNL parodies in the early 90s. Apple employees loved them. Check this one out,

Well, this was actually a spelling issue.

Old saying:
There is no bad publicity.

Apple should love this. It's just their insecure fans that don't.
