VIDEO: iPad 2 Gets "Will It Blend" Treatment

By - Source: Blendtec | B 27 comments

It's an iPad 2. In a blender. It's like being a kid all over again!

It was bound to happen sooner or later: an iPad 2 serving as the latest victim in the "Will It Blend" video series from Blendtec. The premise should be fairly obvious: shove Apple's new iPad 2 tablet in a blender and see what happens. It's exciting. It's crazy. It's even a little sad to watch this hot, expensive ticket be reduced to a pile of smoking metal and plastic bits.

In a mock press event, the Steve Jobs wanna-be tries to sell the iPad 2 as even more durable than the previous model. If that's not enough, the 10-inch size is just too big to fit within a blender... or so he assumes. Surely the device is safe!

But as Tom Dickson states as he grabs the new tablet, literally breaks it in half over the blender's red base, and shoves it down the chute of death, "I'm gonna make the iPad 2 even more compact."

Oh yes, blend away dear sir.

And super compact it becomes, portable enough to slip into your pocket or down into your shoes for extra padding. Metal and plastic give way to the vicious, spinning blades as they chew through a year's worth of confirmed rumors and speculation. It's the iPad 2 many dreamed about in their sleep, more compact, more durable than ever before. Apparently it's not as durable as the fake Steve Jobs claimed.

When all is said and done, Tom Dickson opens the blender's mouth and waves away the toxic "Apps Smoke" that threatens to drift up into his nostrils. He dumps the heap of iPad 2 carnage on the floor, a depressing mound of ruined technology that suddenly resembles the contents of an overflowing ash tray hitting the carpet. Was that even an iPad 2 in the first place, or merely a fake? Only Blendtec knows.

To see the Apple iPad 2 go up against the spinning blades of death, check out the video below.

    @ house70. Blendtec sales doubled very quickly when these "Will It Blend?" started.

    What ever happened to just using a blender to make ****ing milkshakes? I swear, I am not letting my new children anywhere near this internet, I'm disconnecting the RJ45 life away. This is depressing, nothing but God forsaken Apple propaganda and trolls everywhere. Japan gets a historical disaster, but CN effing N has to promote Apple on its front page every god damn day

    thats the whole idea of the will it blend videos, these are industrialized blenders, did you notice how hard the smacked the ipad against the base of the thing, a normal blender would have given up the ghost there and then, even if the thing did exploded it wont have enough force to break the container let alone maim the operator of the blender, the container was designed to withstand industrial force (in one of the will it blend vids you actually see the thing ignite and flames inside the blender and the thing carries on going blending)

    But he didn't secure the lid so it wouldn't matter if it was industrial surely?

    I thought this video was rather cute. For those of you that are so upset over this, email them. I'm sure their hate mail isn't as near in volume to their praise mail. I don't care what they'd be blending, it'd be entertaining to see if it blended or not. Grow up, it's in fun. Relax. Noone got hurt, people shouldn't be crying about something like this. The only guy with a valid reason of complain is the guy with kids, and, guess what? There's much worse out there then this...ever hear of Jackass? That's on TV, not just the net.

    Teehee. This always makes me giggle. And watching the people who go ??? makes me laugh even harder. Especially the Appletards who get all up-in-arms about it.
