Appleis iPod U2 Special Edition (US$349 - Apple Store) made an appearance on this weekendis Saturday Night Live, one week after pop group U2 itself was on the show. The iPod appeared in a segment featuring Irish actor Colin Ferrell as U2is Bono being interviewed on a (fake) Univision TV show by Fred Armisen, who was playing his Venezuelan comedian character named "Fericito."
While U2 itself didnit hold up or show their special edition iPod during the bandis musical appearance on Saturday Night Live last week, Colin Ferrellis version of Bono held the new black and red iPod up during the segment, and mentioned that it will hold 5,000 songs.
