Jimmy Kimmel Pranks the Public by Presenting iPad Mini as the New iPhone
For those reasons, we can give a pass to random people walking the sidewalks of New York who believed that Apple went bigger this time around. What's not so easy to excuse, however, is that when presented with an iPad mini and told by one of Jimmy Kimmel's staff members holding a microphone that it was the new iPhone, that they not only believed it, but pretended it was the greatest phone ever.
One passerby held the iPad mini up to his ear like an iPhone and gushed about the call quality. This came after he praised the device for being much sleeker, lighter, and smaller (what!?).
He wasn't the only that didn't do the stereotypical Apple fan any favors. A woman was told that if she clicks the Home button and licks the screen, she'd be able to taste the flavor. "It comes in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry," the reporter told her. After the first lick, she said there was no taste, but after a second attempt, she proclaimed, "Oh, I can taste it! Whoa, that's so weird. It's cool, I like it!"
Hilariously (and sadly), there's more. Check it out for yourself in the embedded YouTube video above and then drop a comment below!
