This is probably the funniest video I've seen this year, they really don't hold anything back. Things you'll see in the video, based on real events:
- Steve Jobs taking the role of the Emperor from Bill Gates, earning the truth distortion field.
- Jobs breaking into Jason Chen's house and taking care of him personally.
- Jobs at the Apple factory in China as people commit suicide from bad working conditions and depression.
- People in chains to their AT&T contract.
- A person complains about lost bars gets his fingers cut off to get more reception and thanks Emperor Jobs.
- Jobs losing his truth distortion field because of Consumer Reports.
- In the press conference, he stomps on competitor's phones, literally!
- Crowd is happily fooled, he gets his distortion field back.

One of my favorites is the Leno-Conan fiasco:
Hulk Conan! Let's hope Pixar asks NMA to create a short animation for their next major film. Maybe one based on Mel Gibson's tapes!
