The Great iPhone Massacre

The Great iPhone Massacre

The new iPhone XD. The future of mobile. Hi. I’m Steve Jobs and I’ve come back from a cold, dark grave to tell you about our latest innovation. But… Just before I show you this new phone:
I want to tell you a story. It begins in 2013, and
we had just released the new iOS 7. It was a proud moment
for us and it all went off without a hitch. That is, until 4chan had an idea. “A bogus ad that could cost you
hundreds of dollars.” They started spreading rumors that the software upgrade made your phone waterproof. And they even started making
marketing materials that looked like ours. According to these ads,
advanced algorithms in the new iOS allowed the phone to detect
when water was touching the circuitry. This would then trigger
an automatic disconnect of the battery. Of course; this doesn’t make any sense. But that didn’t stop our customers
from trying it anyway. There were a number of news stories. “What I did not do however – was then
drop my phone into a bowl of water. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about others.” “So how close would you get
your cellphone to the water? Well…” “All right Tony.” “It’s not funny.” Thank god we don’t offer
warranty on water damage. A year later; in September 2014
we were excited to release the new iOS 8. Well it turned out that 4chan
had also been planning to release a new feature. Apple Wave They made another marketing campaign that claimed even more sophisticated algorithms that allowed the new iphone battery to be charged by simply popping the thing in the microwave for two minutes on high. They claimed that the RF transmitter which is used to connect to the radio towers could be used to absorb the microwaves and send them straight down to the battery. People really did this
by the way. And the news picked up on it too. “Yeah, don’t put your phone in a microwave,
don’t put your phone in a toilet. I mean… Come on this… a lot of these things
seem they should be common sense.” “Charge your phone in the microwave feature.” “Just to be clear: don’t ever, ever do that.” Now it’s hard to know for sure
which of these tweets are real or hoaxes. And some of the news reports claimed
that no one actually tried this at all. Ryan says most people haven’t fallen – or at least admitted to have fallen for the destructive ploy. However these pitiable cries
on the Apple forums say otherwise. “What can I do if I microwave my phone?” “Help!
iPhone put in microwave and not working now.” “I know it’s stupid but
I put my phone in the microwave.” “Ok. Let’s say I stuck my phone in the microwave.”
I fell for the ‘microwave your phone and it will charge.'” DROP IT *Chimbirs* “I’m stupid please help.” And even the LAPD had to issue a warning after receiving a large number of distressed phone calls. How they were able to call the police I haven’t quite figured out. Now the next campaign started
only a few days later. On the iPhone 6 we decided to
use an aluminium chassis. It was cheaper. Lighter and it looked very nice. But yes, you could also bend the hell out of it “The iPhone 6+ bends…
a lot.” So all our hipster customers with their skinny jeans were discovering a nice ass curve in their new phone. Thus, #Bendgate was born. Some other brands took the
opportunity to take the piss. Our twitter got flooded
with the same bad accessory joke. To prevent damage: we needed you
to be more delicate with your phones. Or just buy a case. But instead, 4chan was there to make
another marketing campaign. They decided that Bend wasn’t a bug, It was a feature. and people were encouraged to bend until their screen popped right out. And you did. The next two years passed without
much happening. But then, in 2016
we released the new iPhone 7. And courageously,
“Courage!” It featured no headphone jack. But one youtuber – TechRax. Decided to tell people otherwise. “Hidden inside your iPhone 7
is a 3.5 mm audio jack.” And apparently, all you had to do…
was drill for it. Article after article
about people drilling into their phones. But we’re just scratching the thin veneer
of dumbassery. There was a bug that bricked your phone permamently if you set the date to January 1st 1970. “It ends up with a time before
January 1st 1970. Which should just be a negative integer. Except it’s not. It’s wrapped up all the way round giving you a date twenty times longer than the expected lifespan of the universe.” So some idiot made a campaign there too. Big lines at the genius bar that week. But there’s one last thing:
we put a tiny seam in the side of your iPhone 6. So that it pulled out your hair every time
you put your phone up to your face. I made that design decision. I thought it was funny. And all of this brings us
to today and your new iPhone. This is it. This is what you get. No more nice things. You can drown it. You can microwave it. You can drill it. And you can bend it. And it will still pull out some of your hair. Does it work? NO! But it’s what you deserve. Fuck you, stupids, I’m going back to my tomb… Available in three hard drive sizes: 12 MB, 13 MB and 128 GB. 100k subs. Woohoo. Also I’m starting a second channel. Internet Historian Research. For the things that don’t make the final cut. For example. Pool is closed. There is HIV AIDS in the pool. Also stingrays. Which also have AIDS. DESUDESUDESUDESUDESU So the little avatar would walk up to your avatar and say… Yeah… and say “Hello I’m grabbing your breasts. I’m doing this to you. I’m having sex with you and now I’m leaving you.” ♫ Hitler did nothing wroooooooong! ♫

  1. Just as a question why do people even put their phone in their back pockets like, as a criminal you become such an insanely easy target for pickpocketing, 4 seconds at max is how long itd take me to steal your phone and be on my way to the door, its mind numbingly dumb how people think it's fine to ever just casually leave their expensive stuff showing, back pockets dont hide anything and even if I dont steal your phone directly I've seen motherfuckers have their phone fall our of their pocket while walking and not notice so you best believe that shits mine now you fuckin loser, it doesn't make sense to put your phone in your back pocket ever

  2. Is it so difficult to research further on claims like these? Apparently yes. Because now these people have busted, charred, scrapped metal. And because it makes absolute sense that a microwave can charge an iPhone.

  3. Anyone ever remember the history books that told you, that before you were born, you had to own land to cast a vote on U.S. government officials?
    I'm beginning to think there was a good reason for that.

  4. 3:01 "A buddy just called me to tell me that his daughter nuked his phone."

    Obviously the microwave charging worked great if he could call to tell his friend about it.

  5. I don't think anyone microwaved phones or put them in water.
    I think it was just 4Chan making up more fake stuff, to make it seem like it worked.
    Then laugh at people for being "dumb"


  6. if your paying 1500 dollars for a product that is inferior to a Samsung Galaxy phone you deserve what you get bro

  7. 1:29 "How close would you get your cell phone to the water? Well, -"


    Like my weak-hearted grandfather, I died laughing.

  8. What's sad is that Apple has most definitely capitalized off of all this dumbassery that 4chan so spectacularly exposed. A new phone these days wouldn't cost baseline $900, plus accessories and replacement charge, if Apple hadn't realized that consumers would do and pay for absolutely anything they were presented with. It's a high price to pay for such hilarity at those consumers' deserving expense.

  9. It's so profoundly dumb, because even if Apple were to officially say "the new phone is waterproof", obviously that doesn't mean "hey go stick it in water" it would just be a last ditch measure to maybe save the phone if it got splashed

  10. I can’t comprehend how people can be so gullible — really had no idea there were this many stupid people, until Trump happened. I don’t have much faith in the long term stability of my species.

  11. what kind of fucking retard buys a cell phone that doesn't have a audio jack? What kind of fucking retard company builds a cell phone that doesn't have an audio jack?

  12. I love how accurate the ending is, Apple could sell you a iPhone built as a bomb and the Apple sheep will still go nuts over it

  13. To be honest, the people who blame TechRax are incredibly stupid because no one, not even a 5 year old would be stupid enough to run a drill through your phone.

  14. Microwave bit reminds me of those "use the microwave to kill bacteria" life hack posts, like that's not how microwaves work?

  15. I still stand by the opinion that removing the headphone jack was the second worst possible design decision Apple ever made, right after not adding microSD support. I know they make money off of accessories for both of those, but it’s despicable.

  16. a new iPhone and this time three camera

    and this is of course it is new and original and worth your 1100$
    sez Steve jobs' after coming out of his tomb

  17. Everytime i have difficulty with life, i come here to see this video which makes me feel im not the most stupid & mindless person in the world. Try it.
