No jokes left behind in this rivalry
Once again, Apple is the butt of Samsung's jokes. This time literally.
Does the iPhone 6 have a tendency to bend in your back pocket when you sit down? Would the Internet lie about such a thing? Samsung gleefully embraces the "Bendgate" scandal
in this two-minute video, "Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Endures the Gluteus Maximus," which delivers exactly what the title says. You'll marvel, or not, as the Samsung phone survives stress tests set to a techno beat. Robotic buttocks, sporting blue jeans (of course!) and equal to the weight of a 200-pound human being, pose the biggest challenge, smooshing the handset repeatedly.
One day, when the machines rise up against their masters, this denim-clad butt-bot will crush us all!
The clip has more than 2 million views on YouTube, and its entertainment factor is awfully high. Though, as other commenters have noted, the only thing this demonstration proves is that Samsung continues to define itself largely in relation to Apple, slinging mud and hoping it'll stick to the rival brand.
I'm pretty flexible, but after a while, that strategy gets to be a bummer.
