SNL iPhone 5 Spoof

In what was one of Saturday Night Live's funniest parody sketches in recent memory, the show took a shot at the iPhone 5 and the tech industry's response to some of its much-discussed setbacks, including Google Maps.

In a faux talk show called Tech Talk -- starring guest host Christina Applegate -- critics bashed the major design flaws surrounding the latest Apple smartphone. To address the issues, three Chinese factory workers joined in to put them in place.

"You wanted Starbucks, but it took you to Dunkin' Donuts?" said one worker, referring to the new Apple Maps app. "That must be so hard for you."

Another responded: "I guess we are lucky that we don't use Maps since we sleep where we work."

The critics started to backpedal and apologized for being so harsh in their reviews, but the workers didn't buy it -- they whipped out violins to play along with the whining.

Applegate, who served as Tech Talk's moderator, asked the workers if they wanted to complain about any American products (as it would only be fair):

"What does America make?" one said. "Does diabetes count as a product?"

Although the video isn't available on NBC.com just yet, the team at Mediaite.com was quick to post the video online. To check it out, click here.
