It sure was a big week in the world of mobile: BlackBerry users experienced a service outage, and Apple’s iPhone 4S became available in stores.
To celebrate these fruit-themed mobile events, we bring you the broken blackberry video. Watch this disgruntled blackberry owner try to return his precious fruit to the store owner.The video’s advice to blackberry owners: “You could try using a mouse to drag the blackberry to the trash. Then after you’ve done that, you might want to launch the blackberry from the desktop.”
The video also alludes to Apple’s rapid product launch cycle, claiming in the past two weeks, two new apples have become available. Following a 16-month wait between iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, we’re not sure that pun totally works right now, but the comics make up for it when they whip out an “eggs box £3.60.”
The clip initially aired on the BBC on Christmas Day 2010 as part of the comedy sketch program The One Ronnie for comedian Ronnie Corbett’s 80th birthday (Corbett is best known as half of the former comedy duoThe Two Ronnies).
