Steve Jobs look-a-like selling tea in Taiwan
Oh, Steve’s not gonna like this. Or is he? A Taiwan-based tea company has posted a new ad featuring a Steve Jobs look-a-like letting people know they can earn a chance to win an iPad 2 with each purchase.
Apple recently cracked down on contests using “iPhone” and “iPad” in their promotional materials, and they’ve been quick to protect Steve’s image in the past. Still, there’s something charming about the use of Steve to sell tea and it would be nice if Steve had a sense of humor about the parody.
Of course, Steve’s image combined with the iPad2 could easily cause confusion and be seen as an official endorsement by Apple, so I would expect this ad to be pulled soon. Still I give the ad company an E for effort.
