Conan O'Brien Explains the Gold iPhone Is for Miami Beach Party Trash

This is a true story. Back when I was studying at the University of Miami and enrolled in a class taught by President Donna Shalala, she excused herself to take a call on her gold Motorola Razr, and in that instant, she gained the admiration of every sorority girl on campus. Her gold Razr instantly became campus lore. So it's safe to say there's a large segment of people in this city who love gold things.

Last night, Conan O'Brien explained who designed the new gold iPhone: a party-lovin', chain-wearin', Russian-accented, Miami Beach-livin', wannabe playboy named Raffi Jaharian.

Raffi explained his design inspiration: "You know, you're on a deck of a boat. Hot lady on this arm. Hot lady on that arm. Champagne cocktail. Dance beats going good. DJ says, 'Hey, Raffi, only the hottest tracks for you,' and you're like, 'Ah, buddy you're the best.' Gold is best."

Sounds about right.
