Some kid from Broken Arrow made a fake iPhone commercial

Over the weekend, one of my Facebook friends posted the video above to their Facebook wall. After watching it, I remember being mildly impressed and thinking "'That's kind of cool, but someone has way too much time on their hands."

Well, it turns out that someone with way too much free time is Dakota Adney. He's a 17-year-old high school student from the Tulsa area. Via News on 6:

A Green Country teen is the creator of a video that's gone viral. It's also grabbed the attention of Apple fanatics across the world.

The News on 6 met with the 17-year-old Coweta kid who came up with his version of what he thinks the iPhone 5 will look like.

"I'd love to be a director or something similar to that," said Dakota Adney.

Adney is your typical teen. A high school senior with big ambitions; ambitions that can been seen in his YouTube video.

"I really like Apple's advertising techniques and I thought it would be cool to try to make something like they do, like I see on TV," Adney said.

It's an advertisement he made for what he thinks the new iPhone 5 will look like.

"The concept I made is a fully transparent phone with a laser keyboard. I don't know if the iPhone 5 will actually have that, but it would be cool if it did," Adney said.

I give up. I can barely splice together a crappy One Shining Moment video montage and some 17-year-old kid from Tulsa is making viral videos of transparent Apple products. That's just deflating. To make matters worse, his name is Dakota. Outside of Jackson and Hudson, that may be the douchiest boy name out there.

Anyway, I'm sure Dakota Adney is a nice kid and everything, but calling him "your typical teen" is a bit an overstatement. I thought the typical teenage boy played video games, drank Sunny Delight and egged cars. I didn't know they spent hours each day creating fake Apple commercials. Then again, I was a teenage boy in the 1990s. Back then, the only person who owned Apple products was Steve Jobs.
