Remember when these made you want the latest iPod?

Apple’s new Airpods — wireless earbuds, for those who haven’t heard any of the new products hitting Apple’s shelves — don’t work with these classic iPod ads, Conan O’Brien pointed out.

The comedian released a short clip parodying Apple’s dancing silhouettes.

O’Brien isn’t the first to point out possibly absurdity with the upgraded iPhone. Design studio Nicer marketed the Apple Plug, an irremovable plug for your headphone jack. Stephen Colbert parodied the iPhone reveal on The Late Show. “How much more can we less?” Colbert asks. “We think you’ll be very excited about all the things we didn’t include.”

Don’t worry, if you don’t want to pay $159 for the Airpods, you can always invest in a dongle to use your old headphones. Or you could pay an extra $10 for a strap that connects two wireless Airpods together. The possibilities of the iPhone 7 (both real and parody) are endless.
