Steve Jobs Funeral Picture: Sick Satire?
You!
Add Photos & Videos
Kim Jong Il, the recently-deceased North Korean leader, had a massive funeral procession in Pyongyang. The North Koreans put a giant picture of Kim Jong Il on top of a limousine in the funeral procession. Someone took the photo of Kim Jong Il and 'doctored' the photo to put Steve Jobs on the picture. You can see both the original and doctored photos below.

Original Kim Jong Il funeral photo:

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Computers, also died in 2011. Steve Jobs created one of the world's largest companies -- but he also created a fanatical following of consumers. Steve Jobs' death had massive media attention and sympathy. Many in America eulogized Steve Jobs in a similar fashion to Kim Jong Il.

I think the person who created the doctored photo made an interesting point -- that many have over-eulogized Steve Jobs and worshiped him like the North Koreans worshiped Kim Jong Il. North Koreans didn't have a choice about honoring Kim Jong Il -- they would get beaten, killed, imprisoned if they didn't show public support for "Dear Leader." I think the artists of the Steve Jobs picture also tried to express that many paid homage to Steve Jobs because of peer pressure.

Steve Jobs did amazing things. He 'thought different' and advanced consumer electronics faster than any single individual in the past 20 years. I mean no disrespect to the great innovator, CEO, and human. But I also appreciate humor and satire that helps put life into perspective.

    Steve Jobs is an icon to the world and can be remembered for all that he did. Kim Jong II will not go down in history so kindly.

    I wish everyone would stop making more of Jobs than he really was... sure he was a visionary and a great businessman, but he was also a ruthless douche who denied his first child for a good part of her life, and he fostered a hostile work environment...

    North Korea cannot even claim that they invented starvation.

    But that misses my point.... maybe we have deified Jobs a bit too much.

    Come on, people need to lighten up if they thought it was sick. Humans try to make a serious situation humorous whenever possible, and it was really more of a poke at Kim Jong Il.

    Apple is great, yes it's not perfect, but my first mp3 player was awesome, and I love my mac. Apart from being a bit overpriced, I don't see anything wrong with apple products.
