Video: Jimmy Kimmel’s Hollywood iWatch hoax

The staff of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! took a $20 watch with an Apple sticker on the back to Hollywood Boulevard Wednesday for some man-on-the-street comedy fun.

Cutting to the chase:

Q: Why don’t you tell me what you like about this watch?

A: Really because it’s Apple. Apple is a brand name that I love, and I have the computer and I have the phone and I have the iPad. So because it’s Apple, that would be what would impress me.

Q: So you would buy anything?

A: I would buy pretty much anything from Apple.

Q: Even if it’s a Casio watch with a sticker on the back?
