Team Coco's video bits can be hit or miss. The one about Apple's iNett was a miss.
Or maybe the details in the New York Times series on working conditions in Shenzhen, China, hit too close to home.
But for me the video sketch about iNett -- Apple's supposed solution to the cluster of suicides among Foxconn's factory workers that Conan O'Brien aired Wednesday night -- fell, if you'll pardon the expression, a bit flat.
But if you don't mind making light of self-destruction, you can get their latest video here.
The tech-savvy comedian used the occasion of Amazon's (AMZN) first software update to poke fun Tuesday night at the Kindle Fire -- and show his bias in favor of Apple's (AAPL) iPad 2.

Apple's slick promotional videos have become a ripe target for mockery
Nobody can match the quality of the work coming out of Jonathan Ive's industrial design shop, but his soft-spoken commentaries in Apple's (AAPL) promotional videos are becoming a cliché.

Conan O'Brien is in his bedroom. It's a little bit past 11 p.m., and he's shyly, hesitantly, nervously attempting to do his first webcast. But he keeps getting interrupted. And it's driving him crazy. "Get out of my room! Get out of my room! This is private!" O'Brien's embarrassed, MOREFeb 10, 2011 5:00 AM ET
Last week, Conan took a break from his Legally Not Allowed to be Funny on TV tour to chat with Google employees.
