Always quick to exploit everything Apple as an inspiration for his late-night talk show, Conan O’Brien took Apple’s charming piano commercial for the new iPad mini and made a sort of sarcastic musical out of it, just watch…

So, if you’re in the market for a smaller, less expensive iPad, would you agree with O’Brien’s assessment that “you’re just trying to fill the empty void in your sad life”?

Here’s Apple’s original commercial.

If it’s any indication, despite criticism some four out of each ten readers who voted in our poll said they are planning on getting an iPad mini.

  • I THOUGHT IS WAS BORING ADN UN INTERESTING.. Just more of teh same boring IOS that we have been seeing for 5 years

    I never understood why people bitch about stupid shit. It’s the same, oh it’s boring stuff. If your so tired of it then don’t buy it. But there are people whom don’t have an iPad and the mini is the perfect device for them. I don’t care who you are iOS has the best App Store for tablets and more media availability hands down.

      One funny thing at my school is that most people who don’t own anything from apple are talking about getting an ipad mini…specially girls.

  • billypuntove

    Oh my god. I can’t believe you’re attacking Conan for this.
    I’m planning to buy a Mini and I still found this hilarious.

    You’d be laughing all the way if he were making fun of an Android tablet.

    C’mon, people! Have a little fun!

  • That’s not funny and not true, I’m an apple fan, but I don’t buy everything that Apple releases, I buy what I like and fits my life.

    • Steve

      Don’t lie, you’re just trying to fill the void in your empty, sad life.

  • That was funny. I have a very big void, so Im buying 2.

  • Yujin

    I don’t mind Conan, but do you people think he is funny? Really? Low brain capacity I guess…

    • Perhaps it’s the other way around… that your brain hasn’t evolved enough to comprehend the hilariousness of sarcasm.

    • maurid

      It takes a very smart person to truly understand and enjoy sarcasm. Maybe you’re not there JUST yet.

  • MagicDrumSticks

    Christian has the biggest void of all.

  • He’s a comedian, it’s his JOB to make fun of anything and everything. And being a late night talk show host, it’s also his JOB to make fun of what’s popular at the time. Heaven forbid someone makes fun of Apple…oh wait, almost every comedian/talk show host does!

  • Funny shit!!

  • If I was in the market for a 7 inch tablet, I would rather get a Nexus 7 and an original Kindle Fire for roughly the same price as an iPad Mini. I think $329 is over priced considering the competition starts at $200, with the older ones hitting between $99 to $159

  • I found this funny as well and I still have and do love my iPhone.

  • sjah07

    Wait… Apple made an add about their new product? Like what the hell?
    I’m surprised iDB isn’t saying this: “One thing is certain: Microsoft Apple is determined to make as much noise as possible about this tablet.”

    “If it’s any indication, despite criticism some four out of each ten readers who voted in our poll said they are planning on getting an iPad mini.”

    You had to play the “stats” card… HE WAS KIDDING. He’s a freaking comedian and this was funny stuff. If you have no humor at all to not laugh at this then you DO have to fill the empty void in your sad life.
