$10,000 Gold Apple Watch Edition Crushed By Magnets.
Would you do this?
Why on earth do that ..?
This video should be burned to a platinum DVD and shot into space so future aliens can see why our planet imploded on itself with sheer wasteful greed.
Idiots...someone please explain the point of this video aside from proving that the human race has hit new lows.
I'll take the box
Clicks can = cash. A lot of people make cash on YouTube. I doubt he'll earn enough to even come close to paying off that watch. Unless there are a ton of haters.
1 word, "retarded"
I assume the guy had AppleCare+ on it so it only cost him $1,000 to get it replaced.
Well, for every person that watches the video you are helping his pocket.
So if you bought a good watch, don't put your hand between two super powerful magnets. I bought the stainless model and never go near magnetic bricks, so I think I'm good.
Also, I don't plan to put my junk between those magnets to see if I will be able to feel anything but pain for the rest of my life. So that dude can just skip that experiment.
Probably, and it wouldn't surprise me if he had earlier asked for donations to get the money to buy the watch and make the video, and if that was the case considering he'll probably make more than the $1000 in ad revenue from this video he just got a free apple watch edition.
Can you make out the serial number? Apple should refuse to replace this if he has applecare plus.
Assuming that's a real Edition, and not just a plated SS, a large part of the value of the Edition is the pure gold content. Crushing it doesn't remove the gold or its inherent value.
The owner can still recover some of the cost by selling the gold. So, not a full $10k waste.
Why do it? Simple, because you can! To all those people saying we as a race have now hit "new lows", you have lived a VERY sheltered life if you think this is a new low. I do believe that nuclear & chemical warfare is far, far, FAR lower than anything this guy has ever done.
It's a watch FFS! If he wants to smash it with magnets, grind it up into 1,000,000 pieces, eat it, then crap it out, then he has every right to do that. Those people who think it's "brainless", "retarded", "a new low", etc really need to get out more. It's just for a laugh and nothing more.
This has already been shared very recently here. What a horrific video to share twice!
Would have been more entertaining to see his hand in there. Amazing what constitutes a business model these days.
But... but... but... I only accidentally put my watch between 2 very large magnets. Then, I accidentally got a friend to help me push the magnets together and they accidentally smashed the watch in between them.
In all seriousness though, wow!
Watching multiple science videos about magnets, (and being a nerd) that's very dangerous.
It's highly advised not to allow magnets (especially large, powerful magnets) to smash together. The force of them smashing causes small metal fragments to break off in all different directions. But, it's obvious that they didn't care about getting pelted with glass, metal, or ceramic. I sure wouldn't want to risk having dangerous fragments flying toward me.
I think this guy's is a user here, remember someone mentioned they got edition with the intention to make a 'destruction' video.
Well hope he recoup the money at least, people don't seem interested in this kind of videos anymore.
What the hell.
Why would you do something like this? I'm sure the money could be better spent.
If it is just a money making exercise then I hope he is out of pocket.
Personally I didn't even bother watching it.
From his bio
It's actually not a large part of the value. Based on 3D modeling, the gold content is estimated to be only around $1200. The rest is simply mark-up.
Honestly, if he sells the gold, makes a little money from the accessories and then finally monetize the views then he'll easily make the money back. Which is alright for him I guess, but an utter waste to Apple.. I've hated this kid for a long while.
Well, of course it broke. He cheaped out. I believe only the $17,000 one is capable of withstanding that.
