We’d really love to run the whole thing in full
Despite some pretty strenuous efforts, here at GoMo News we’ve failed to lay our hands on a complete version of a spoof ad aimed at Apple device owners who are/were in the process of upgrading to iOS 7. It promised “Update to iOS 7 and become waterproof” and really did look like the genuine thing. This fake advert was circulated by various social media sites although the course of the actual image appears to be a site called 4Chan.
That site is like a modern day bulletin board service. It seems to have very strong links to lovers of Japanese Anime cartoons.
GoMo News tried to trawl through this site to look for the ad but all we could find really was plenty of hard core pornography [porn].
We’d really like to run the complete ad so our readers could see just how close to the real thing (ie a genuine Apple advert) it looked.
Which might explain why apparently serious numbers of Apple fanbois fell for the spoof and actually ruined their otherwise perfectly good iPhones.
So if any GoMo News reader has a copy or can privide us with a genuine URL for this ad in full, please get in contact. Or simply leave a Comment below. Thanks.
