Apple 2.0

Covering the business that Steve Jobs built

Video: Exit through the Genius Bar

Once you get past the elaborate poop joke, South Park's Apple send-up is spot on

Comedy Central didn't do its South Park franchise any favors with the clip it chose to promote the 15th season premier: The keynote where Steve Jobs unveils the HumancentiPad. Jobs send-ups are comedic cliches and the centiPad -- a scatalogical spoof on a Dutch horror film few Americans have seen -- is almost unwatchable.

That's a shame, because the episode is a brilliant parody of all things Apple (AAPL) -- albeit one intended for adult audiences that aren't offended by repeated (and pitch perfect) use of the F word.

We're particularly fond of the Genius Bar scenes -- represented by the first clip posted below the fold. The second clip may be the funniest, but it's not suitable for viewing (or listening to) at work.

You can view the full 22-minute episode here. Flash required.
