Watch what happens when you put an iPhone in a bowl of expanding foam

iPhone Stress Test

One of the most annoying things about new iPhone releases are the deluge of videos that seek to come up with new ways to destroy said iPhone. Now I’m not against putting an iPhone in a blender or dropping it from 20 feet up in the air, but the creativity level in the iPhone-destruction world sadly leveled off years ago.

Watch the new iPhone 7 get destroyed by a hammer!

Watch Apple’s latest iPhone get run over by a car!

Yeah, we get it. The iPhone isn’t indestructible. And the novelty of watching drop tests, blend tests and impact tests wore off long ago.

But not all hope is lost.

DON’T MISS: You can make yourself hallucinate without taking any drugs

Late last week, we stumbled a cross a YouTube video involving an iPhone 6s being placed in a bowl of expanding foam. Finally, an iPhone stress test we haven’t yet seen before.

The video description reads, “I placed a fully working iPhone 6S inside a liquid solution that turns into foam in a matter of minutes and I wanted to see if the device can survive the force and pressure inside the ball!”

Enough said, we’re on board. We won’t tell you what happens, but we will point out that there’s something mesmerizing about watching expanding foam take shape, iPhone or not.
