Friday Fun Video: Bell Canada iClones iPhone Ad for Palm Pre

While even our friends over at haven't exactly been thrilled by Palm's own, creepy Pre ads, we're not sure Bell Canada's approach -- filming an original iPhone 2G ad using the Pre as a stand in -- is any better.

As a Canadian myself, I'd like to assure the world we're really a heckuvalot more creative than this! (Right Bell?!)

Recent iPhone ad for comparison's sake, after the jump!
