Found Footage: Chinese Steve Jobs clone intros new iPhone app

The amazing presentation skills of Steve Jobs have been the topic of many articles, but it's downright rare to see an entire press event done by a Steve Jobs clone -- especially one who is speaking in Chinese.

The press conference in question was held yesterday in Hong Kong to celebrate the launch of the MTR Mobile subway app. This is an impressive app, using augmented reality to show the location of stations, displaying schedules and maps, and including a helpful route planner. It's also incredible for finding local goods and services.

The clone at the conference was local celebrity Law Kar-ying, who has obviously watched enough Stevenotes to pick up a lot of the mannerisms of His Steveness, including "One More Thing," gulping bottled water, and plucking an iDevice from his jeans pocket. He's even wearing a close facsimile of the Jobsian wardrobe of a black St. Croix mock turtleneck, Levi's 501 jeans, and New Balance 991 shoes.

As Winandmac.com reports, the Steve clone did something that Jobs never does at press events -- he gave away four iPhone 4's to audience members. Perhaps the real Jobs can learn a lesson here...

Check out the video (in Chinese) after the break.
