    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.

    Is this video viewable on an iPod touch 4g? All I see is a black square.

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

    In our house is all about Macs.

    I don't really enjoy Conans humor but I thought the 'ad' was pretty good.

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

    I wasn't much of a fan until his monologues during the fight with NBC?

    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.

    Boy they were mild.

    You could really go for the throat with big shot like Apple.

    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.
