In the cut-throat tablet market, a Taiwanese company has found one way to make its product stand out: paying an actor to dress up as Steve Jobs and make tasteless jokes about how he's dead. Tasteless, yes. Successful on Youtube, yes. The advert for the Action Pad from Action Electronics is light on the new tablet's features …
I'd have been more impressed
If the man looked even remotely like Stevie boy.
all they would need is some white dude they all look the same anyway
For me that made it even funnier.
A bit like the Japanese Elvis impersonator you can have as a witness for your Vegas wedding.

I mean, come on, he's not exactly eating babies or anything!
The eating babies footage is on the floor of the edit suite.
Clearly not Jobs.
As that guy has Angel wings and a halo. That's not the dress-code where he went...
Whilst Microsoft are also a greedy evil empire, as much as Apple are, at least Gates is donating his billions to good causes.
Jobs was just an evil businessman, that got lucky by hiring the right people and caught peoples imagination because he wore a poloneck and jeans when everyone else was wearing suits.
The reg cracked wise in the previous article about the passing of gamer and how his body went unnoticed by other gamers for nine hours in an internet cafe and now you get your shorts in a knot and all uppity over this?
I just saw these commercials a couple of weeks ago when I was in Taiwan for Chinese New Year. I thought it was rather clever and it had me checking the specs further but it turned out a bit light to seriously draw me in.
