It’s amazing how gullible people can be when it comes to their technology. Apple debuts a shiny, new, kickass phone and no matter WTH you’re handed you’re going to think it’s awesome. Hand said technology aficionado an old model, a completely different phone — a banana for all I care — and call it an iPhone 5, they’re going to say it’s cool.
As we all know, iPhone unveiled the new iPhone 5 in San Francisco last Wednesday. Jimmy Kimmel decided to present the new model to iPhone users on the street, with one catch — they showed off the old model and pretended it was the new one.
The phone doesn’t look too different from the soon-to-be archaic model so it’s understandable why people would get confused, but it’s still hilarious that people will go cray over any old thing, just because they’re expecting epic-ness.
