Feeling heartbroken that the release of Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" (formerly "jOBS") has been pushed back from April 19 to a date still unknown? Here's something to tide you over: the just-released trailer for "iSteve," the forthcoming Steve Jobs movie from Funny or Die.
The full "iSteve," starring Justin Long (or JUSTiN LONG, as his name is rendered on screen), is due to be released online April 15 and to run roughly an hour. Long, of course, is the "Mac Guy" from Apple's long-running "Get a Mac" spots.
The trailer is everything you'd hope it would be: cheesy, cliched, breathless, overwrought, overheated.
