After much anticipation, the white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and, along with it, a hilarious spoof commercial from Funny Or Die. The commercial, described on the site simply as “The first commercial for the new iPhone 4,” starts out like a real Apple advertisement, with a close up shot of the device and a voiceover introducing it but then the guy holding the iPhone drops it and…oops!…he can’t find it because it blends in to the white background set.
“We really shouldn’t have shot a white phone on a white background!” someone shouts as the crewmembers all walk around looking for the white phone, which has fallen face down on the white floor. And indeed, as you can see from the picture above, the White iPhone 4 really does blend in to the white background. The “commercial” culminates with the slogan, “iPhone 4 White: It’s really hard to see.”
The video, uploaded two days ago, has just over 70,000 views so far. About 66% of viewers have voted the video up as “Funny”, while the others have voted it as “Die.” I have to admit that, personally, I think it’s pretty ridiculously hilarious. I only hope that they really came up with this idea because someone couldn’t find their white iPhone 4 on a white surface. Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments below. Is it Funny or Die?
