Apple fans – and critics – have been yakking about the iWatch for quite some time now, and we yet have to see it come to market. While there are hardcore armchair analysts, critics, and pundits all over the place who seem to know everything that’s going on at Apple, it seems that the rest of the world is not as in touch; well, at least some people on Hollywood Boulevard.
Jimmy Kimmel strikes again, and with his vast experience in pranks, he pulls off another impressive stunt: convincing people that a $20 Casio watch is actually the iWatch that “everyone” has been waiting for. Oh, and according to Jimmy Kimmel, it’s iTime.
Why did he opt for this prank? The YouTube description says:
Apple is rumored to be working on what people are calling a “smart watch.” Since this is a product that does not exist yet, we thought we’d have some fun with it. We went out and showed people a device we claimed was the new Apple watch, but was actually a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo glued to the back of it. It turns out there are some people who love Apple enough to look past that.
stupidity gullibility of some people!
