    Did anybody else just see the advert on E4 marketing the 'ePad'?

    It was clearly a spoof advert - it was filmed in a similar style to Apple's iPad video, with multiple people explaining it's functions etc. It's not an actual product, just advertising shows on E4 I think. It was rather funny too, but I can't find it on Youtube yet - I suspect it was the first time it has been shown. As soon as a Youtube video is found I'll post it here :D

    So, did anyone catch it or was it just me?

    I saw it too. Brilliant! They got the tone just right.

    The bit about it being "amazing that you only need one hand to use it", and then you see a guy taking it to the toilet with him, was hilarious.

    hahahahaha! just seen it in the middle of Skins on E4. Was bloody hilarious! When i saw it, and heard the guy talk like Jony Ives, i thought it was actually an advert for the iPad! Classic.

    That was my favourite part :D
    If you see something, you quite literally reach out and touch... the keyboard...

    Made me laugh so much when I was watching Skins last night. They have Johnny Ive down to a tee.

    :D

    My favourite bit too. I thought the joke was just him having it under his arm, but the cubicle bit took it to the next level.

    Hahaha, that was amazing, I love the very last bit where they try to pick it up. Glad to see E4 still has some good talent in their crew.
