    Hey everybody,

    I have an iPhone 5 that was given to me with the expressed purpose of being destroyed in some way to create some viral traffic.

    But, I am having trouble coming up with any exciting ideas...

    Anybody have any good viral video ideas to get rid of this iPhone and maybe have a shot at creating some decent traffic?

    hmmm...put it on a table and wrap it up in plastic so it can't move. Then give a speech to it about how you like killing its kind, mention your "dark passenger" and then plunge a knife through the middle of its screen. Then just stare into the camera.

    That was the first thing that came to my mind as well. I only have one iPhone to kill, but I'd love to get something along the lines of that :-D

    What's that? Sounds extreme :rocketwho

    If that doesn't go viral I don't know what will...

    This would kill it in the 10-15 male demo :)

    Best idea yet! lol

    Make it seem like you accidentally broke it. (Something along the lines of attempting to mod it, maybe putting a new screen on) and now you are very upset you broke your brand new iPhone 5. That would definitely go viral. Title: Guy Accidentally Destroys New iPhone 5

    Or I would do multiple ways of destroying it. Like record some cars running it over, then start chucking the thing against a brickwall. Or videotape a group of guys "jumping" the thing (title: windows fan boys jump iphone)..idk lol. I like the apple idea the best but a proper recording of that would probably cost a lot.

    I would love to shoot it with a .50 cal and a high speed camera, but that might not be the best idea...

    Make sure whatever you do is original. I've seen someone shoot an iPhone already and another guy put his in a blender. Just whatever idea you do, make sure it hasn't been done already.

    If I was browsing youtube and saw a video called "Slow motion .50 Cal through iPhone" I would definitely click that.
