Video: Don’t go to an Apple store and bend their iPhones like these two kids did

September 29th, 2014 at 10:24 AM
iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate Video

One of the funniest moments in The Wire comes when Stringer Bell notices one of his gang’s members has been keeping minutes during a meeting about the foundation of a citywide alliance between rival drug dealers. Bell was obviously not pleased with this and incredulously asked him why he was “taking notes on a criminal f—ing conspiracy.” We were reminded of this scene when we stumbled upon a video of two kids from the U.K. who filmed themselves going into an Apple Store and bending its iPhone 6 models while thinking they would somehow never get caught even after they uploaded the video onto the Internet.

The two U.K. youths in question uploaded their video onto YouTube before quickly realizing the error of their ways and taking it down. Nonetheless, it was up there long enough for someone to download it and put it on a mirror site and we’ve happily uploaded back onto YouTube ourselves for your entertainment.

As you can see, the video begins with the two kids showing their faces on camera telling us that they’ve just finished bending a bunch of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models in an Apple Store. Amazingly, they then say that they’re glad they didn’t get caught by anyone or else they’d be forced to pay for the phones they damaged.

Then the video takes us to the scene of the crime and shows them bending the iPhone 6 Plus until its display pops out of the device. They then try to bend the iPhone 6 and found that it doesn’t bend easily under pressure as the 6 Plus did.

The pair then ask an Apple Store representative whether the 6 Plus really bends and he replies that it does not under regular use. However, at the end of the video the kids say their experience has shown that Apple really does have a problem with how easily its new phones bend and that the company needs to fix it because “this is just f—ing stupid.”

We couldn’t agree more.
