Conan O'Brien spoofs Apple AirPods with biting commercial

Posted on

TBS

Excited about spending $159 for a pair of Apple’s new wireless headphones, dubbed AirPods? Conan O’Brien is here with a dose of cold water. On Wednesday’s episode of Conan, the host debuted a fake commercial showing the perils of owning the latest Apple invention.

Taking a page out of Apple’s marketing for the iPod, O’Brien had two silhouetted figures dancing while wearing AirPods, only to have the headphones continually fall out of their ears. Each time, a new pair was purchased; each time, that new pair was lost.

“AIrPods: Wireless. Expensive. Lost” read a banner at the end of O’Brien’s spoof, a play on the actual AirPods logline: “Wireless. Effortless. Magical.”

Watch the fake commercial below.
