My answer is No.

These are very different sketches.

Even though both scenarios have a cell phone in common, I cannot see how either of the producers could sue the other for copyright infringement.

A cell phone is also used in

but you cannot copyright the idea of using a cell phone in a film.

I hope this information is helpful.
