OK - I've watched it four times now, and no - it's definitely not funny!

I think what it's saying is that if you've got a long enough brass neck, and have heard the fairytale of "The Emperors New Clothes", you can screw some gullible American company for all their worth. All over the States, people are noding knowingly, and maybe uttering "yeah - deep man!" or some similar meaningless drivel, in the hope that their friends will think they are awesome because they "get it"!

I must admit I'm kinda lost. And not amused. Seems fairly pointless.

I like it, but then again, I'm a foreigner.

I guess I just don't yet understand the subtleties of your British humour...
