    Did you see the fake iPhone ad on Saturday Night Live?

    Fred Armisen shows us how easy it is to hide his girlfriend's message and photo from his wife.

    On YouTube.

    Yep. It was fun. I was telling my wife "It should make it to YouTube in (looking at watch), well... now."

    Thanks.

    I liked it. Sadly though, I thought it was a better 'ad' than the real ones!:eek::eek:

    First thing I noticed? The iPhone in the sketch was jailbroken. Nice.

    It's not only Jailbroken, it's unlocked -- the carrier tag is not AT&T.

    Riotous!:D

    How come Steve didn't show off THAT feature during his keynote?!:p

    I was wondering when SNL would parody the iPhone.

    Anyone got another upload of the ad? NBC pulled it from YouTube.

    LOL. I'm sure Steve promptly changed his "Give Peace a Chance" ringtone for the NBC folk...

    I didn't find it funny at all, but at least a notch better than the iRack skit.

    Yeah, the owner became so frustrated with his hacked iPhone that it will end it's life as a prop, while he got a new one.:eek:
