We’ve already seen Conan O’Brien’s funny take on the iPad mini but here’s another amusing parody Apple advertisement for the shrunken tablet device, which zones in on some ‘interesting’ angles and features of the tablet.

For comparison, here are the real-deal, bona fide Apple iPad mini ads.

Parodies aside, the device has enjoyed a positive early reception. Pre-orders for it, and the fourth-generation (full-sized) iPad kicked off last Friday and, by the weekend, Apple’s initial stock of white-colored WiFi devices had sold out in the US; all device types followed suit on Monday, pushing customer delivery estimates from November 2 to ‘2 weeks’. The cellular version of the tablets has yet to get a shipping date but is available to order.
