Apple iPhone reaps free publicity on Late Show with David Letterman, Tonight Show with Jay Leno

“The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno hosted guests Dennis Quaid and David Koechner who were both showing off their iPhones during their interviews,” LoopRumors reports.

LoopRumors reports, “Jay Leno, aware of the attention given to the iPhone, screams: ‘If I don’t get a free iPhone tomorrow, I’m gonna be pissed!'”

“Ironically, The Tonight Show is an NBC production. NBC ended its contract with Apple’s iTunes in August and subsequently pulled all of its shows from the iTunes Store. If this was a result of carefully orchestrated product placement as Apple was accused of during the Oscars, it may be an indication that Apple’s improving its ties with NBC,” LoopRumors opines.

  1. On the Late Show a few weeks ago, they were doing a bit with the Director Hal Gurnee (?). Clearly visable in the shot was an Apple TV sitting on top of a stack of production equipment. Video server would be my guess.

    The iPhone is a great example of a product that people love to use, and this is evidence of that.

  3. Loser: I only buy things that celebrities use.

  4. The smug and pretentious parade of brainwashed MAC fanboys and fangirls continues from Hollywood. Of course they’re using I-Phones in L.A. It’s where smugness and pretension were invented. In the real world people who need a smartphone use Windows Mobile-based devices.

    Neither myself of the IT staff where I work are impressed by the smug elite and their toys.

    As much as I love Queens of the Stone Age, Josh and the boyz backed the wrong pony. I remember seeing a Zune (remember those) commercial featuring Eagles of Death Metal

    MW: age…as in Queens of The….
