Thanks to Kj for feedback, and Rob for suggesting that some sort of clips to make it sound like a real product could work. After a bit of searching, I found this clip from an Apple presentation that fit.

Oh, and one more thing... look for it this Fall - the iSledgehammer.

You say your phone screen is locked
Isn't that what your passcode is for?!
You should upgrade to our new product
It will solve world hunger and more

No one can call you on it...
But that's what you want anyway

You say you hate our company
Well, how about some free fonts from our Genius Bar?
You could have this all resolved tomorrow
As long as you're not the Justice Department

It's what you need - iSledgehammer
It'll break any passcode you make
Ow! Watch where you swing iSledgehammer
By the way, it still needs regular updates
You can't make calls with iSledgehammer
But it will "Facetime" someone you hate

A Parody of "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel

You've got that 80's sledgehammer vibe and you sound terrific. "But that's what you want anyway" is such sneaky snark. Just great.
