Do you lack the “courage” to follow Apple’s bold vision of a wireless future? Or are you just too broke to justify dropping $649 for a storage upgrade and a dual-lens camera

Fear not. There’s a cheap and dirty solution for “transforming last year’s phone into a modern masterpiece as beautifully as you’d expect from Apple.”

The Apple Plug is a pitch-perfect satire of the slick pretentiousness of all things Apple. It was created by Nicer Studio, an indie design and development company based in Greenville, South Carolina, and it’s surprisingly strong for a last-minute gag. 

Of course, you can buy Apple’s Lightning-to-headphone adapter for under $10, but can you really afford to be so basic? No one wants to be left behind.  

We removed the floppy drive, and people said we were wrong. We weren’t. We removed the CD drive, and again people said we were wrong. We weren’t. We never are. Apple Plug isn’t just a pristine product. It’s an essential part of showing others who you are.

Welcome to the future.
