Those crazy kids at Taiwan’s NMA are back again with yet another of their awesome SIMS-style news videos. You might remember them from the Tiger Woods video or the Conan O’Brien Late Night video, both of which were hugely popular. Well, they’re back again, and this time they’re taking on Steve Jobs, Apple, and Antennagate. Weirdly, they use a very appropriate Star Wars metaphor, except this time Luke Skywalker becomes a turtleneck-wearing Darth Vader.
Unsurprisingly, they hit every possible angle to this story, all of which I’ve discussed here. The Jason Chen police search, the antenna problems, the high suicide rate at Apple’s Foxconn plant, the discrimination against left-handers, Steve’s own poor grasp of public relations, the lawsuits, the press conference and free bumpers, and even Consumer Reports flunking the crappy iPhone 4! They’ve actually produced one of the best wrap-ups of the situation possible and they did it in their characteristically funny video format. I’m actually really impressed with their journalism skills!
