Apple’s legal battle with Samsung hasn’t been looking too good for Samsung lately. First, we saw Apple lay-out evidence that Samsung had been co-opting some of the company’s icon designs. Now, Apple’s presented the court with an internal Samsung memo that seems to reveal a concerted effort to adopt iPhone features for the company’s own Galaxy-series phones. In the midst of all this serious business going down, with some potentially expensive ramifications, a little levity could go a long way. Luckily for us, Conan O’Brien’s on top of things, and shared a short “message from Samsung” on his show.
In this parody, Samsung vigorously defends itself from allegations that it’s just trying to copy Apple. Clearly, Samsung’s “Smart Guys” have nothing to do with Apple’s Geniuses, and any resemblance between Steve Jobs and Samsung founder Stefan Jobes are purely coincidental. In any case, even if there’s a bit of similarity between the smartphones and tablets the two companies manufacture, no one would confuse Samsung’s other products, like its Macrowave oven or iWasher machine, for anything Apple makes.
Altogether, this is a well-done jab at both Apple culture and Samsung’s apparently shameless desire to have the same for itself. We think it’s all in good fun, but wonder just how Samsung feels.
