He's not really famous enough to spoof. Most people watching think he's just Anonymous Apple Executive 1, Cupertino's equivalent of a Red Shirt.

>(a) I thought this was pretty funny; and (b) I’m kind of blown away that Federighi is famous enough to spoof.

1.Writing in parenthetical A's and B's and using semi-colons is obnoxious.

2.It's likely more people watched the Federighi demo fail live than watch Conan live and in youtube clips combined.

3.The Hair Force One nickname caught on so much they made a movie about it:

That's highly unlikely.

Look at the youtube views for Team Coco.

[https://www.youtube.com/user/teamcoco/videos](https://www.youtube.com/user/teamcoco/videos)

This video specifically has 220,000 views.

Add to that roughly a million nightly views for his show.

I'd say it's likely more than a million or two people watched the Apple keynote live.

Now if you want to get pedantic and say there are unrelated youtube clips at Team Coco then fine. You win and miss the point.

Apple is extremely popular. More popular than Conan. It should surprise no one that an Apple demo fail sketch made it on to a TV show with fewer numbers than watched the keynote.

It's not Federighi that is so famous. It's Apple.
