With all the hype surrounding the iPhone 5, it’s good to step back and laugh at how Apple’s promotion of its products is a bit over-the-top. A clever new video spoofing the iPhone 5 and Apple promos does just that.

This video from comedian John Elerick features testimonials from “Apple employees” over a white background. They make fun of the fact that the iPhone 5 is actually Apple’s sixth iPhone model, Apple’s new Lightning connector is a headache for people who have to buy many adapters, and Facebook integration in iOS 6 could be a little annoying.

Check out the parody video above. And here’s the original iPhone 5 promo below, for reference.
