“A bizarre commercial has surfaced from Taiwan [Action Electronics] promoting a new Android tablet showing Taiwanese impersonator taking on the trademark Steve Jobs black turtleneck and blue jeans look,” Electronista reports.
“In the ad, embedded below, the character is equipped with angel wings and a halo promoting the new tablet on stage with a slideshow in the background, much as Jobs’ would have in launching a new Apple product,” Electronista reports. “It concludes with the Jobs-like character saying ‘Thank God I finally get to play with other tablets.’”
Electronista reports, “The ad is likely to capture the attention of Cupertino’s lawyers who recently moved to stop the release of a Steve Jobs action figure. An Action Electronics spokesperson opted for an equally strange justification for the direct play on the late Apple founder, who famously derided Android as ‘shit.’”
