ICYMI: Steve Jobs, a biographical drama movie based on the life of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, is set to be released in the US of A this month.

However, it has already been generating quite a buzz in the previous months thanks, in part, to Michael Fassbender's highly-anticipated portrayal of one of tech history's most enigmatic and polarizing personalities ever.

And when an upcoming movie is generating a bit of hype, expect trailer parodies to be not far behind, like this hilarious skit by Team Coco, which stars someone who's the exact opposite of the film's titular character:

Interestingly, this parody has a bit of real-life history in it. There's actually a real "Michael Dell" and, yes, he is the CEO of Dell Inc., one of Apple's rivals in the desktop market.

But it goes even deeper. Apparently, Michael once said the following line in response to a then-struggling Apple in 1997: "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders." Ouch!

Not too quick to forget, Steve Jobs hit back at the quote during a product launch in the same year:

Conan O'Brien's parody suddenly became more than just another comedic routine.
