Android 4.4 KitKat Is A Joke, Right? Lame Kit Kat Video Makes The Idea Even Worse

By now you’ve probably already heard the very bizarre announcement made by Google today concerning the next version of Android. Android 4.4 KitKat signals a new level of weird for Google, but we’re also hoping that we’ll get a follow-up announcement that this is all one big (and bad) joke.

After the announcement, Kit Kat’s official YouTube channel released the video below.

Pretty awful, isn’t it?

The whole thing is mind-numbing and is pretty hard to believe. Plus, Kit Kats suck.

So what do you think about Android 4.4’s new name? Sound off in the comments below!

  • So you’re angry about an operating system’s pointless code name? Let’s take a moment and chill out…so, now that we’ve collected our thoughts, lets stop writing pointless articles and get back to real news, ok?


    • Geek at heart

      I would not call it a code name. The corporate sponsor marketing campaign is around the OS version name. I could not have purposely come up with a more ridiculous name that takes away any perceived “cool factor” Android had going.

    KitKats suck? Ok Commie….

    Take that tude back to North Korea.

  • Maggot

    The video is pretty funny. It pokes fun at Apple’s douchy videos. Johnny Ive is insufferable in those vids. I guess an apple fan wouldn’t find it funny.

    Firstly, Kit Kats may suck in your book but they only suck as much as you πŸ™‚ Secondly, this whole coming together is ingenious. I thought it was a joke at first, but the more I thought about it, the more it makes sense.

    People all over the world, old and young are soon going to be exposed to the Android brand which will be in shops where the Android branding would have never been seen.

    I think it’s ingenious, and the KitKat video mocking Apple just shows how light the whole thing is.

    Brilliant article. Well-rounded thoughts supported by paragraphs of evidence. Your journalism professor would be proud and your basic composition professor cries tears of redemption through your work.

    Maybe it’s time to go back to community college for a refresher course. Oh, and while you’re there, have a Kit Kat while on break. They’re delicious.

  • McShave

    Who the f*%# doesn’t like Kit Kat. I think this is a great idea, and as already said, it’s only a name.

  • arts and farts

    Google is has successfully trolled us all.

    Well played, well played indeed.

    As for the article….lighten up. It was all around pretty funny.

  • asims1988

    You need to chill out.

  • Ryan

    You’re an idiot, Kit Kat’s don’t suck.

    So, what you’re trying to say is all the other names have been good? They’ve always been goofy names, what’s the big problem with this one?

  • kitkatlover

    Google trolled you

  • turbonut20v

    I think the author of this is trollin lol who doesn’t like kit Kat’s

  • blakestimac

    lol. I was fairly sure it was a bit obvious that this was written in jest.

    And no, Kit Kats aren’t my favorite but by comparison, I’d take one over key lime pie anyday. πŸ™‚

    • Spoken Wordβ„’

      I guess that’s the 2nd mistake you made. The 1st was posting this lame attempt at humor.

      • Vera L

        The author is entitled to his opinion whether you agree with it or not. If you need to be such a rude douchebag, I think the ones who made the mistake, are your parents.

  • Chris Kurth

    Blake Stimac, you sir, are an idiot.

  • Juan Sutton

    Everyone’s comments so far are awesome, who care about a code name if the update is great.

  • Douglas Mott

    who cares what they call it.

  • Joth

    This is a kit Kat commercial for an android tablet giveaway contest. They figured it would be obvious, but, I guess that’s just to the majority of the population. Also, who doesn’t like kit cats? There’s something wrong with you Sir.

  • JC

    Probably should delete this Blake. It looks like it was a voicemail you left a cloe friend, and it accidentally got transcribed and put here. I want to know the “we” you’re referring to, and who else gets this angry at a candy. Otherwise, wait a day or so before just plopping down on your toilet and pulling something out of it, for the sake of publishing something.

  • Lamepie

    Google is so lame. No one wants break of that bug ridden Android garbage.

  • jim

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the name .. they can name it whatever they want, and as long as it’s a good product, why not? oh, and one more thing, kitkats don’t suck.

  • dgh

    Who doesn’t like kit kat?? Unbelievable article lame and humorless writers.. its funny its smart its geeky like google are.. i like it and support the whole idea, its seem like anti android apple sheep fan’s thoughts.. sorry for truth does hurt.

  • Billy Bob Joe

    Ladies, calm down. You do know that all Andoid’s name are ffrom alphabetical order, right? Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean , and finally KitKat. It’s just a name. Besides, Google loves money and this is just practically a marketing idea to make money (duh).
