Microsoft has been forced to remove a video advertisement from YouTube, a parody of the recently revealed iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, due to the negative response it received from the viewers.

Titled as “A Fly on the Wall in Cupertino”, the video appears to be simply ridiculous as two of the actors make dumb suggestions to another character who is supposed to be Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple,  in the headquarter of the company located in California.

Daily Mail states that the actor who is supposed to be Tim Cook has the appearance of Steve Jobs. According to most of the tech bloggers, the advertisement has turned from “strange” to “offensive”.        

Moreover, the advertisement directly mocks the quote of Tim Cook. As a consequence, it started to get an adverse response from the viewers.

Ultimately, Microsoft has to pull the video from YouTube. The company has made a statement, described as: “The video was intended to be a light-hearted poke at our friends from Cupertino. But it was off the mark, and we decided to pull it down.”

Most of the people are happy with the fact that removal of the video has taken place within a short period of time.
