Taiwanese Comedian Shamelessly Mocks Steve Jobs In Android Tablet Ad

Taiwanese comedian and impersonator Ah-Ken shamelessly mocked the late Steve Jobs of Apple Inc in a video for a Taiwanese Android Tablet commercial that was broadcast in Asia on TV earlier this week. In the video (see below) Clad is seen wearing Jobs’s trademark black turtleneck top, blue jeans and new balance shoes and saying things like

Thank God I get to play with other tablets
Toward the end of the video, he whips out an Android tablet called Action Pad, manufactured by Action Electronics.

While the ad never mention Jobs by name (lawsuit fears?), it is clearly a portrayal of the late Steve Jobs in his famous product unveiling presentations.

Jobs, who died on Oct. 5, thought Google’s Android mobile operating system was a ripoff of Apple’s iOS, which is used in the iPhone and iPad. In authorized biography of the Apple cofounder, Jobs is quoted as saying he effectively “declared war” on Android and that he felt “personally betrayed” by Google.

If you find this ad as distasteful, and want to go after Action Electronics, here is their website.

    Is Apple hypocritical?蘋果那個缺角是隱藏的偽善嗎?
    The Price of Apple’s Huge Success
    The Price of Apple’s Huge Success= hypocritical and misplaced.
    Here’s what Jobs had to say once about the Foxconn plant, according to a report:
    You go in this place and it’s a factory but, my gosh, they’ve got restaurants and movie theatres and hospitals and swimming pools. For a factory, it’s pretty nice.
    I wonder, though, if Jobs himself would have taken a job here. He never had to. As a Westerner, Jobs lived under different standards rigorously enforced by regulators, monitored closely by human rights organizations and constantly scrutinized by lawyers. Any of the violations and numerous injuries reported in the press would have attracted a swarm of lawyers.
