iPad Gets Smashed With a Baseball Bat

One of the most viewed clips on YouTube over the weekend was of a brand new iPad getting the beatdown from a baseball bat.

Justin Kockott, a 19-year-old Pittsburgh high school student, decided to buy an iPad 16GB model from Best Buy; but before even turning it on, he threw it to the ground and pummeled on it with a baseball bat.

The LA Times caught up with Kockott for a brief Q&A to find out why he did it. Here are a few of the exchanges.

What gave you the idea for the video?

    I don't care what he says, either he is nuts or he has a ton of money... Some of us don't have 500 to randomly throw around just because we want to do a 2 second stunt.

    ... wanted to be the first... He must have missed Daniel Tosh taking a driver to one a month or so ago, one that apple sent for him to review. I guess he missed the originality mark there
