We all know that the new iPhones are just around the corner. What that means is that it is high time someone created a parody on the new devices' welcome video and uploaded it on YouTube. You see, each time Apple releases its new smartphone or tablet, someone shots a clip that makes fun of either gadget itself, or the fans waiting for the release date, or whatever else.
This year is not an exception - below you can see a short iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C introductory video. People, who look almost just like the actual Apple’s engineers and executives (I’m joking, of course), tell us the story about what do the the letters “S” and “C” mean.

The comparison photo published by the website features the logic board of iPhone 5C an iPhone 5. The casing of iPhone 5C has three screw holes in it that line up with the logic board.
