While You're Waiting for Apple's Delayed AirPods, Watch This Hilarious Parody Ad

By Published on .

Were you hoping that by now you'd be a proud owner of a pair of Apple's new AirPods, because Apple promised a "late October" release date for them? Not gonna happen (see: "Apple Delays AirPods Rollout, Saying 'We Need a Little More Time'").

Upon the initial announcement of the wireless earbuds, Ad Age's Garett Sloane put together a brief round-up some of the internet ridicule of Apple's latest pricey product -- but it came a bit too early to include the parody ad above created by TBS's "Conan." So we quietly planned to post it upon Apple's announcement of a specific AirPods release date -- but screw it; now we've lost patience and want to get on with our lives.

Think of this as a #TBT (Throwback Thursday) post for a vintage video (six weeks ago counts as vintage in Internet Time, right?).
