When it was announced that Google purchased Motorola you knew it was only a matter of time before Taiwanese Next Media Animation got their hands on it. The creators of very odd, yet hilarious, reenactments of current news events depicting the $12.5 billion dollar acquisition.
The video features Steve Jobs in a Darth Vader helmet, Larry Page and Sergey Brin “desperately searching for a second act”, and a Frankenstien-esque droid terrorizing Samsung and Nokia and their possibility of jumping on the Windows Phone bandwagon.
“For Google, in addition to the patents, included in the $12.5 billion package are Motorola Mobility’s 19,000 employees, $3 billion in cash, and $3.3 billion in revenue last quarter. But the real winners of this deal may be Motorola CEO and Chairman Sanjay Jha, who is reportedly going to make $90 million from the acquisition; or billionaire Carl Icahn, who just became $415 million richer,” they say about this new video.
NMA is well known for their timely animations of current events. They’ve animated an odd Dark Knight Rises trailer, Supreme Court video game decision, and LulzSec attempted takedown of CIA.gov among others.
