The iPhone 7, it’s Just a Little Funnier…

No matter the brand of phone that keeps your pocket warm during the day we all have to admit that the original iPhone changed the way we communicate. With so much innovation already under its belt maintaining the momentum must be difficult, which brings us nicely to the iPhone 7.

Obviously Tim Cook couldn’t just get up on stage and say that they tried really hard but it IS just worse. However, the comically inclined individuals over at CollegeHumor can and did. Seizing upon this moment of weakness for Apple CH have launched an hilarious broad side in the form of a parody video.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the hilarious blow-back from a less than stellar week for Apple. When will they learn and bring back the turtleneck sweater, that was Jobs’ real secret weapon. Sit back relax and be sure to have your laughing pants on.

Liam the iPhone Destroyer.

No matter what you say about Apple they known their target audience. Take Liam for example, a robot built solely to destroy iPhone’s, disassembling them piece by piece. An incredible technical achievement in his own right but in the hands of Apple he is far more than a recycling robot, he is a warm and fuzzy feeling. Not that there is anything wrong with that as long as you remember its just a commercial.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is Mr Roboto  aka Liam the iPhone Destroyer, making us all feel better about our disposable world. Also Included, just for laughs, is the insatiable Cookie Monster Timer commercial, some of Apples best work. Sit back relax and prepare to be disassembled and reassembled in the funniest way possible.

A 100 MPH Apple to the Face, Awesomely Funny.

With the latest Internet trend seeing kids set themselves on fire for fun here at Highpants we would like to remind the pranksters amongst us what happens when pranks go wrong, just what pain really looks like.

Taking a piece of high speed fruit to the face may not sound like the most extreme challenge but the results speak for themselves. Any object, no matter how soft and squishy, travelling at 100 mph is dangerous especially if it hits you right on the bridge of your nose, one of the most sensitive parts of your head. Your eyes will water in sympathy.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is one of the funniest dare videos to hit the net, it may be a bit old but it set the standard for dares that turned out far funnier than anyone could have expected. The sad truth to keep in mind though is that between peer group pressure and trying to impress a hot chick us mere males don’t really stand a chance. Sit back relax and prepare laugh at another person discomfort, schadenfreude in action.
