Plea for a Free iPhone

Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein and Saturday Night Live’s Fred Armisen sat down for Rolling Stone to record a video and it's brilliant. First they start with a discussion about chocolate and then they delve into how they'd tell everyone about the iPhone, Prius, or iPod. It's funny, it's nerdy, and it's slightly awkward. But most of all, this clip is hilarious. Why didn't I think of this?

Watch the video by clicking here (clicking on the photo doesn't work, sorry).

Here's my favorite part:

Fred: "Oh man, I mean how am I going to get on the internet and text and make phone calls without my music on there."

Carrie: "I have so many pictures, and it's like, I want to share with my friends when I'm out, but my camera can only store like two."

Fred: "That's too bad. I don't like the Blackberry, or the Palm Pilot. Hmm, what about the iPhone, by Apple?"

Carrie chuckles, almost losing it.

Carrie: I think that's a great idea, but you know, I wish I could get my hands on one. I really need to feel it to understand whether it's good or not."

Fred: "I need to feel them both in both hands, to compare hands."

Carrie: "And an extra one in my back pocket. I want to see, you know, what's the weight of it? Does it make my jeans sag or do I still look good."

Fred: "I don't know, I have no idea."

Carrie: "Yeah, I don't know."

Fred: "Well, we sure would like to try one out. Because then I would tell everyone about the iPhone, by Apple."

Carrie: "Apple's iPhone!"

While Fred is dreaming about putting Feist on the new ipod he'd tell everyone about, I think I'd like to download a little Tegan and Sara. Yeah, this duo would sound good in those trademark white ear buds. I'd walk around listening to their songs and telling everyone about the new 160 GB ipod...
