Apple iPhone 5s 5c launch video (image 001)

A new prank is making rounds on the web as comedian and YouTuber Tyler Fischer impersonates an Apple Store employee at four different locations in New York City, telling unsuspecting customers to switch to Android because the iPhone is too pricey.

He can be also seen convincing customers that new iPhones are coming tomorrow and that the iPad has “400 megapixels” – megapixels, not megabytes – of RAM and “300 Skype units”

My favorite part: tomorrow, Apple will release “an iPhone 5Q, on Sunday they will come out with the iPhone 5CC, and the next Monday they’re coming out with the iPhone 5CQR”, which is just “slightly more advanced”.

Here it is.

I also love how a customer freaks out after Fischer approaches her to do a quick scan to see if she was eligible. “Eligible for what?!?,” the customer screamed repeatedly.

He even tells shoppers that Apple “created” polio.

I’ve posted it for the comedy value so chime in with your thoughts below.

    One abbreviation. LOL.

  • Steve

    That’s all he’s got?
    I don’t see any creativity. A waste of time.

    • Dominik Odobašić

      Instead of laughs, all you get is butthurt? :/

    • Chuck Finley


      Goddamn fanboys. Get a sense of humour.

    Absolutely not funny. Even rude and offensive. So this is what they call good comedy in the States? I rather watch the Big Bang Theory. At least that’s clever humor!

    • Josh

      “Rude and offensive”

      • Osorio11

        Yes, rude and offensive. Over here in my country it is considered bad taste to make fun of an illness like polio.

      • Josh

        Firstly, it was’t clear in your original comment what you were referring to – it appeared you were calling the video as a whole rude and offensive. Secondly, the man in the video was not making fun of polio, he was using polio as a vehicle to make fun of Apple.

      The Big Bang Theory is the worst, most predictable and horribly uncreative comedy show to ever be on TV. You have no idea what comedy is. You have the same sense of humor as a rock.

      • Drets

        Big Bang Theory is funny. Stop talking.

      • philad3lphia

        That show is cancer, those who like it have zero sense of humor. Sorry you had to find out this way.

      • Osorio11

        You are either very young and unwise or just white trash for talking the way you do.

      • philad3lphia

        Nope, mid 20’s and well to do, you consider it white trash to not like a television show?

  • Matthew Cleveland

    That was hilarious. If someone offered me a MacBook for $20, I’d have to take that deal. No matter how they got it…

  • deepdvd

    I’m guessing he told each of them afterward that he wasn’t really an Apple employee, and just cut that part out.

    • Julian Gigola

      no shit, Sherlock

      • deepdvd

        I love you, too.

  • That is true though on the ripoff, they’re probably laughing at all those customers fooled and brainwashed to buy their highly overpriced products xD
    I want a Nexus 5 🙁

  • Zak Issac

    I though it was funny.. But its quite shameful how those people could get fooled that easily. Then again, maybe i’m just being a nerd.. 🙂

  • Feby Kristianto

    “iPhone 5CQR” = iPhone 5 Cool Quality Ready LOL

  • Gabriel

    Can’t understand how come the Store real employees don’t notice this guy wearing a blue sweater, and know he’s not an employee….
    Extremely funny to see how people react to the iPhone 5CC or 5CQR…

  • xSeriouSx

    Hahaha, goes to show how the average Apple customer is easily brainwashed…
