Remember Bendgate, the massively overblown period following the iPhone 6’s release, in which people acted like Apple’s handset was about as sturdy as a slice of processed cheese?

Well, destructive YouTuber TechRax is back with a new “stress test” designed to see how the studier iPhone 6s fares against 3,500 pounds of pressure. Answer: nNt very well at all.

If, to paraphrase Fight Club, you want to see out 2015 by watching the destruction of something beautiful, check out the video below.

TechRax, for those unfamiliar with him, is the same guy who previously showed us what would happen if you stuck your iPhone in a lava lamp or used magnets to crush a $10,000 Apple Watch Edition.

It’s a weird world we live in when destroying “must have” tech gadgets is someone’s actual job description!

Still, I guess we’ve learned a valuable lesson about not storing our precious iPhones next to massive mechanical winches.
