Roger and Pre

A video with a heavy dose of parody asks: What can the Palm Pre really do?

All Things D has posted a mock video ad featuring Palm's executive chairman Jon Rubinstein and major Palm investor Roger McNamee. For those who don't get the gag, McNamee is the guy who famously expressed a little too much enthusiasm for the Pre, forcing Palm to distance itself from his boastful remarks, some of which were deemed inaccurate. In the video, Rubinstein is shown trying to reign Roger in.

Funny stuff. But who will have the last laugh?
