The iPhone 5S is expected to pack a plethora of interesting features, but in a real change from tradition, it looks as though Apple has decided to introduce a gold, or champagne color configuration. Naturally, not everybody has been impressed by this decision, and the stereotypes thrown up by prospective owners of a gold smartphone are almost perfectly encompassed by a new mock ad, released after the iPhone 5S announcement parody. The short clip involves, for lack of a more apt phrase, a douchebag, who proceeds to strut around town wielding his shiny new gold iPhone. Check it out after the break!
It remains to be seen what the reception will be to the gold iPhone 5S, but even before its release or even announcement, plenty of folks are tripping over each other to slate it.
Although personally, I probably wouldn’t want to go out and buy any smartphone in gold, I know that many folks would, and so I think additional choice, provided the black and white models remain alongside and are not replaced, can only really be a good thing from a consumer point of view.
There are many good parody videos made, particularly around the time of announcements, and this is arguably the best we’ve seen so far regarding the forthcoming Apple iPhone unveiling.
The gold iPhone 5S should arrive alongside a polycarbonate, low-cost iPhone 5C, both of which are due to be announced tomorrow. Rumor has also suggested that MacBooks, or specifically the Pro with Retina display model, could also be in line for an Intel Haswell upgrade, but regardless, we shall be reporting on all of the important details here at Redmond Pie as and when they happen, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, check out the video below for a couple of cheap laughs at the expense of the gold/champagne iPhone 5S owner. Do you think this is the kind of buyer Apple is looking to target with the new color configuration? Or, even, is the gold model a more desirable choice than the rather bland current offerings available with the iPhone 5?
Do share your thoughts via the usual mediums below, it’s always a treat to hear from you guys!
