'iPhone 5' parody video mocks users' biggest obsession

iPhone users and foodies are both well accustomed to being the butts of parody videos. Now there's a clip for both, one that'll tickle fanboys, haters and anyone who's ever snapped a photo of their food — or rolled their eyes at someone who did.

The above video, labeled "LEAKED Official Apple iPhone 5 Promo Video," is made by Web comedy writer and director Adam Sacks, and stars actor/writer Avery Monsen.

Even though Sacks' video is definitely just for laughs, I do feel that it's necessary to point out one of its pesky inaccuracies: The next-generation iPhone will most likely not be called the "iPhone 5."

The next-generation iPhone will be the sixth-generation device in the line, following the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. Calling it the "iPhone 5" would be awkwardly inaccurate and skipping right to "iPhone 6" would be inelegant. Odds are that the folks at Apple will just dub the device the "new iPhone," just like they named the third-generation iPad the "new iPad," rather than the "iPad 3."
