Really? I've seen much funnier parodies on YouTube done by 12 year olds.

I saw it last night and personally didn't find it funny. I don't find Conan funny at all.

The part about the non-specific ethnic accent was the best! Funny stuff.

In our house is all about Macs.

I was LMAO last night at this, especially the end. Sad but true. :( LOL

This doesn't render so well on the ipad1. I'm sure it's just an ipad2 website though.

I'll wait for the iPad 3 parody from Conan, rumour has it its being filmed at Retina Display resolution.

Great commercial.

I'm sure this will piss off a few fan boys, but why so serious guys?

Sadly I think since I waited one generation, I'm still tempted to pick one up. Although $350 for a first gen refurb seems tempting.

(wifi tethering to an unlimited plan :))

always great when you can laugh at things you love. Those naysayers take jokes against apple too literally. Lighten up :D

Conan's been getting less and less funny over the past 3-4 years...and this was right about on par with that. Only thing that really made me laugh was the line about his shirt popping from the white background--he looked so proud about it.

To be honest, I don't see why everyone is calling it a slight upgrade to the first iPad. What did people expect? Okay, the cameras are a disappointment, but anyone who expected a Retina Display at this stage is far too optimistic.

I have to agree with this. I love Conan but he isn't what he used to be. (Then again I watched him back in the Andy Richter days with the Conan babies and staring contest skits).

Also I love how on the Engadget comments there are people saying things like "I'm glad Conan tore into Apple" and such.

They must not realize Conan owns a mac. I've seen many pictures with him and a Mac together. Perhaps he's like Weird Al who parodies what he loves.
