Seriously, people just keep trying to come up with the most creative way to torture and destroy their electronic devices. We've seen smartphones dropped, hammered, cut, stabbed, drowned, run over, shot, exploded, blended, sliced, sent into space and more. Today's wacky video takes the cake by going way out into crazy-land.

This creative YouTuber decided to boil his iPhone 6, but not in water... oh no. That would be too easy. Instead he boils his iPhone 6 in Coca-Cola. Yep.

It turns out this is more intriguing than you would think at first blush. This way, we get to watch several unusual things at the same time... one is the way an iPhone 6 reacts to being boiled; the second is the way Coca-Cola reacts to being boiled; the third is the interaction of these two interactions. It makes for a fairly entertaining watch, although we can't attest to the sensibilities of the videographer. Let us know what you think of this bizarre find.

Seeing he have a list of videos where he is destroying electronics, he either must have some good insurance or a lot of money to blow.

I agree with @dgstorm , these are getting ridiculous. I somewhat understand the drop tests because it gives people an idea of how a phone would hold up if it falls out of our pocket, I can even somewhat understand the water test to give people an idea if a device really is water repellant/resistant, but anything beyond that is overkill. I do not need to see people try and bend a phone or boil it in liquids. We all know what to expect from that.

The only thing it did was once again show me how disgusting Coke is. That's way to much sugar for me.

I have to agree that these are getting ridiculous. If you're paying for these phones and making these videos, send some cash my way and I'll do something more productive with it.

I'm not sure whether this one or the one wear the guy unboxes it and promptly buries it in the back yard is more useless.

Totally agree. Drinking plain water is boring, but as you can see from the video it is definitely the way to go.

I have an awesome way to destroy an electronic device... Submerge it in hot antifreeze.. Ethyl glycol would do the trick.. Or hot used engine oil.... Or hot transmission fluid. Or gear lube... Hydraulic fluid... Any of the above..

My favorite use of Coke: When you are out of Drano, let the Coke sit out until it gets nice and room temperature. Pour down drain and let sit for 4-5 minutes. Run hot water down it. I have never tried it on toilets but it has worked for my kitchen sink and my bathrooms. I was shocked that it ate up some of my beard hairs!!
