Ellen makes spoof iPhone commercial. Apple doesn't think it's funny.

Comedian Ellen DeGeneres played a spoof iPhone ad during her Monday talk show. In it, she is glorifying the iPhone, yet having difficulties with texting.

Apple didn't see the humor in her commercial and complained that she implied that the iPhone is difficult to use. Ellen responded during her Tuesday show by apologizing and explaining that the iPhone is in fact not hard to use, it's the only phone she can text on, and that she loves her iPhone, iPad, iPod, and even iHop!

Watch the ad and her apology below and let us know what you think. Is Apple being a little too sensitive?

UPDATE: Ellen's official YouTube video says "no longer available" (all her YouTube videos now say that(?!)) so we've switched to whatever non iPhone-friendly version they use on the official website. Sorry!
