Here’s another video of the Blendtec blender in action simply destroying good technology. This time it’s a bunch of 7-inch tablets: Google’s Nexus 7, Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and Apple’s iPad mini. You can guess what happens when Tom Dickson puts the tablets into the blender, but he first takes some extreme measures to get them all inside. Heart wrenching really. None of these videos make me want rush out and buy a Blentec blender, but certainly shows how powerful they are. Check out the 2-minute video of pure destruction below.

    I never understood the point of this stupid will it blend crap. It’s such a waste of money and good products.

    • Dylan K

      This originally started as a PR stunt for the company that went wildfire on YouTube. Also, there are lots of dumber things on Youtube in terms of mangling and destroying expencive equipment.

    • Is Rim dead?

      Notice how they NEVER blend Blackberry products!!! This is because blackberry is SOOOOOOOOOOOO amazing!!!

      GO RIM GO!
      GO ONTARIO GO!
      GO ONTARIO TEACHERS GO!
      GO CANADA GO!
      GO CANADIAN HOUSING GO!
      YAY!

      Are you kidding? Those three tablets combined is less than $1000. Marketing companies have spend way more for less effective ads. Next time you need a blender you will think of this commercial.

    • RIM SUPPORTER!

      Obama uses a Blackberry, only white losers and asian nerds and brown geeks use iphones!

      GO RIM!

    Tons of Apple stuff always being blended… nice to see the love being spread around. Doesn’t matter if you’re an Android or Apple fanboy, these are always great to watch.

  • Ron Mexico

    The most ridiculous videos imaginable.

    Just stupid, although I’m not gonna lie, I do like seeing the iPad minced into shards. :)

  • Alex B

    @ fish…it’s marketing for his blenders

  • General Gustov

    So whats the point ?????????????

    • Brad F(anboy)

      The point is: These blenders are serious business.

  • SanRuelino

    seriously, i do not see the point of these “will it blend” videos. it may be fun to watch but its pointless.

    • @Kwongie

      the point is to show how powerful these blenders are, the will it blend is a series of ads for the blendtec blender similar to the series of “Get a Mac” ads that apple used to air.

  • Max

    I enjoy every video from blendtec. They are sooo much fun! They destroy cars in movie sets, what’s the big deal with a phone?

    • BaconTelevision

      They destroy cars to produce an end product such as a block-buster movie.

      This is a phone being blended for the general public to be amused for 30 seconds.

  • jeff

    please stop reposting this trash in your tech site. it serve no propose and only encorages wasting these products. Give aways are much better marketing tools.

    • Eh?

      Encourages wasting these products? You really think people are going to see this and go “Gee, I should do that with my iPad too!”??
      It’s a commercial for a blender.

    • Plan Shopper

      @Eh, Obviously people have otherwise they wouldn’t feel the need to put on the screen “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME”.

  • hmmmm

    the only stupid thing is that the guy is not wearing a mask and he is saying to not breathe this stuff…

  • converse

    If we enjoy watching video’s like these, then I wonder what the IQ levels of people will be 100 years from now.
    Kinda makes me wanna shed a tear for humanity in general.

  • DrBadass

    The point of these to see if an alien invasion was to happen, You know you will have a product will not blend, this increasing your chance of survival

  • Vince

    I suspect that they used non-functional models. If you notice, the camera does cut to the close-up and the screen isn’t actually active on the tablets when they get smashed.
