The iPad Mini is expected to be announced Oct. 23

You probably thought Apple CEO Tim Cook would announce the iPad Mini on Oct. 23, but a new video has Steve Jobs' ghost doing the job while rap battling other tech giants that dare to challenge the new iDevice.
 
The video, created by Mondo Media, is a parody video that makes fun of Apple, the iPad Mini and Apple's rivals. 
 
The video opens with Tim Cook, who is portrayed as a fannypack-wearing, unhip Apple leader who attempts to rap about the iPad Mini's announcement. The audience's disapproval brings Steve Jobs back from the grave in the form of a ghost, who takes over the show in an epic rap battle with the likes of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. 
 
Jobs' ghost later performs a rather inappropriate action to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, and continues to rub the iPad Mini in everyone's face. 
 
Some could say the video is disrespectful and goes a bit too far -- even for a parody -- while others have gotten a laugh out of it and moved on. Personally, I chuckled a couple of times throughout the video, but thought it was kind of ridiculous overall (in a "not-that-entertaining" sort of way). I don't agree with making fun of the dead, but let's be honest -- there is way worse on the Internet.

What do you think?

 

The iPad Mini, which is the 7.85-inch version of the iPad, is expected to be announced Oct. 23.

i'm glad someone can draw a correlary.

now i'm going to godwin the thread and mention that hitler doesn't deserve respect even though he's dead--so it doesn't hold true for anyone else either.
