Since we don’t really know what happens to us when we pass on, a Taiwanese commercial is taking advantage of the unknown and picturing heaven as a place where Steve Jobs can finally play with Android phones to his heart’s content. Which is very likely, considering he called them “sh#!” while he was alive.
Taiwan-based Action Electronics Co.’s new spot for their Android-powered tablet PC and multi-language dictionary features comedian Ah-Ken all decked out in Jobs’ iconic jeans and black turtleneck outfit. Oh and he has a halo and wings, because of course he’d be an angel.
“Introducing the new generation of the pad,” he says, before revealing the Action Pad and showing it off. “Thank God I finally get to play other tablets!” “
This is a hilarious scenario, because as Reuters points out, the late Jobs called Android many things, including fecal matter, and said in his biography he was going to “destroy” it, as well as being prepared to go into “thermonuclear war” over it.
But Action Electronics is spinning that hatred a totally different way.
“Steve Jobs always promoted things that were good for people, Apple products, so his image can also promote other things that are good,” said Chelsea Chen, a spokeswoman for Action Electronics.
We get it! Now that’s he’s no longer among the living, rival companies can just make up what they want him to say from beyond the grave, apparently.
