Unintentional comedy at a gadget keynote

Asus Padfone launch creates a viral superstar

I'm pretty sure that when Asus decided to launch its new Padfone (a combination smartphone/tablet device) at Computex, that it would create a new Internet superstar. But with this video (uploaded by our friends at the IDG News Service), there is some unintentional comedy from Jonney Shih, the chairman of Asustek Computer. Part nervousness, part foreign accent, part showmanship, part camp - it all creates a very funny video that I can't stop watching.

Maybe it was the magic trick, or the way he hung up on "Steve". Whatever the reason, I want to see more of this guy on video.
