This iPhone Spoof Ad Uses Crocs in the Place of the iPhone 5c

Crocs replace the 5c in this iPhone spoof ad making fun of the recent Apple product release. A variety of people use the shoe rather than a phone in different social settings. The Vienna-based advertising agency PKP BBDO parodies the original commercial by playing with the phrase 'for the colorful.' The bright rubber shoes spawned significant hatred in recent years due to the visually unappealing, though comfortable, design.

Scenes in the iPhone spoof ad include a man in a bathroom, a group of girls taking selfies, employees at work and other everyday occurrences such as sitting at a cafe, riding a bicycle and running errands. A particularly great moment is the wall of crocs. This parody commercial puts the classic banana phone joke to shame.
