iPhone: Will it blend? July 11, 2007

It was just a matter of time.

There’s this site I go to now and then just to see the understated lunacy of their (award-winning) marketing program. Blendtec, makers of home and commercial blenders, asks and answers for us one of the most important questions in life: Will it blend?

These kooks have done what the kid in us has always wanted to do – put anything and everything in their blender, citing as their reason that old adage about why dogs lick their privates: because they can. Also to prove that their Total Blender can take just about anything. Over the years they’ve blended literally everything; most recently they blended a Transformer robot. The video is actually retro and a bit creepy, from the old sixties TV promo music to the cheerful yet disconnected demeanor of the host, Tom Dickson. He tortures tech with a smile, sort of like the Nazis at work in Dachau.

Now, they’ve blended an iPhone.

You can watch the carnage here, if you have the stomach for it.

Oh, the humanity…

Someone emailed this to me. I was like, “whatta crazy fool”. That blender is pretty good though. Damn, never thought I’d see a pulverized iPhone!
