Ellen's fake iPhone commercial  (Source: Warner Brothers)
Ellen issues a hasty apology to avoid Apple's wrath

Self-proclaimed Apple product fan and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres isn't above poking a bit of fun at her gadgets of choice.  On a clip Monday, Ellen DeGeneres spoofed the iPhone commercials, showing that the interface can at times be clunky with simple chores like typing becoming a headache.

Apparently Apple wasn't very amused.  In a video Tuesday, Ellen said that Apple contacted her and was upset by the fake commercial.

Now you don't want to mess with Apple.  The company is more than willing to sue anybody -- asHTC knows far too well.  And the company has already shown that it isn't a big fan of satire; in fact, it's App store developer agreement has anti-satire provisions in it.

So in a long nervous apology, Ellen says that she really loves Apple products and that they're easy to use.  She even personally apologizes to the old Apple chief himself, Steve Jobs.

The video of that apology (which also contains the original faux commercial) can be found here.

Hopefully Apple accepts the forced apology and doesn't sue.  And hopefully someday they can learn to take a joke.  For a company that for years made fun of its chief competitor, Microsoft, Apple seems to have pretty thin skin.





"If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else." -- Microsoft Business Group President Jeff Raikes
