VIDEO: YouTuber drops iPhone 7 Plus from Burj Khalifa

Since the iPhone 7 hit shelves, it’s been the subject of countless viral vlogs, but the latest one to rack up views is a bit more controversial than the rest. Instead of testing out its speed or new features, TechRax (who is known for his rather odd product reviews) decided to drop the iPhone 7 Plus from the Burj Khalifa.

In the video the YouTuber, who says he’s been “smashing technology since 2011”, drops the iPhone 7 Plus from At The Top of the Burj Khalifa – a whopping 829 metres high. As you would expect, many commenters voiced concern over the safety of the stunt, in case someone was walking nearby.

BloodMaster wrote: “This is where “entertainment” crosses the line. Okay, I get it, it’s funny to see $800 gadget destroyed by knife or some sort of dangerous liquid, it will get views and you will afford new ones to make more content. I get that. But compromising other peoples safety for a sake of such an anti-climatic video is just pointless.”

TechRax is known for “experiments” such as freezing the new iPhone 7 in Coca Cola (below) to see if it breaks. Many people think that this latest “experiment” was quite a few steps too far.
