"Here at Apple, we are obsessed with breaking new boundaries. And today, we throw all that out the window. And yet somehow, we still break boundaries. We have found a way to sell the exact same iPhone a year later," says 'Mark' in this viral Apple iPhone 5S release parody clip.
The 'S' in iPhone 5S stands for "same," Mark says further. The clip goes on to note that iPhone 5 is the best phone "because people said so." Five days into YouTube, the clip has so far drawn 3.7 million views. The clip was produced and uploaded by user Matthias.
