Can An iPhone 5s Film Itself Being Burned Alive? [Video]

Can an iPhone 5s film itself being burned alive?

The answer, it turns out, is no, but that didn’t stop the wasteful doofuses at TechRax lit an iPhone 5s on fire with a combination of gasoline and Axe body spray anyway. They set the iPhone to record, lit it aflame, then dunked it in a bucket of water to cool it off. Incredibly, they then seemed disappointed they could not retrieve the video from the iPhone 5s — perhaps dropping it in a bucket of water had something to do with that? — so they then start smashing it with a hammer.

Ladies and gentlemen, all hail the gadget dork’s moronic, mindlessly destructive id!

    wow.. also, not sure if you noticed, but they pointed the camera down to the ground.. not up. .they needed to have the phone flipped over if they were serious at all when it came to filming the fire in slowmo. Instead we saw the ground through the hole in the table.. dumb @sses..

    Please please don’t give these people the attention they’re looking for. The best thing we can do is make them destroy an expensive phone in vain.
