Apple was quick to offer iTunes users a one-click way to rid their digital libraries of the new (and very free) U2 album earlier this week. But for some anti-U2ites that just isn't enough and Conan O'Brien and team have imagined a rather more extreme service from Apple that can wipe the Bono from your brain completely. It's called eRase U2, and it's for people with Apple ID's like, say, ungratefulbaby.
"Apparently to today's youth, giving away a free album from one of the best band's of all time is like going to their house and taking a gigantic crap on their doorstep," deadpanned a bespeckled VP of marketing in the spoof, which aired Thursday on TBS' Conan.
Following a pair of testimonials from disgruntled millennial types -- one was told to move out of her apartment because she couldn't get a new U2 song out of her head -- the marketing guy introduces the eRase U2 program, "which will not only remove all memories of the new U2 album, but will also remove any memory of the band U2 whatsoever."
A quick medical procedure later and presto! no more Songs of Innocence, or "One," "Where the Streets Have No Name" or any other trace of the iconic Irish band (screw you Live Aid!). By the end, the exec puts it plainly: "If you're happy, we're happy. But seriously, F you. It was a free album. Get over it." Watch:
