Chinese Factory Workers Don’t Care if You Hate the iPhone 5

Sick of hearing everyone complain about the bugs in the new Apple iPhone? Direct them to this hilariously offensive SNL sketch, in which a panel of American tech critics awkwardly faces off on a fake talk show with three Chinese factory workers who make the phones.

Of course, SNL has no Chinese cast-members, so the workers are played by Fred Armisen, Nasim Pedrad, and promising newcomer Cecily Strong, and their performances incorporate pretty much every Asian stereotype you can imagine.

So before you complain about how shitty the maps feature is on the iPhone 5, consider that the people who made it don’t need maps, because “we sleep where we work.” The workers also pause to consider what products America manufactures, concluding that diabetes probably doesn’t count.
