A curious YouTube user decided he would put a brand new iPhone 6 into a pot of boiling Coca-Cola, and the result was exactly what you’d expect.
Since its release, the iPhone 6 has faced its fair share of destructive tests, including being shot with a pistol, microwaved, and frozen with liquid nitrogen, but no test has made people ask, “Why?” as much as the boiling coke test has.
In this now viral clip, the man decides he’s going to drop a perfectly good iPhone 6 into a pot of boiling Coca-Cola to see what happens. As you’d probably expect, the end result is not good. The phone becomes enveloped in the sugary liquid, and after a few minutes, the outside melts and it suddenly explodes, leaving behind thick green and brown smoke.
After cooling for a few hours, the man removes the iPhone 6 from the pot of boiling Coke, and while the casing still seems to be intact, the entire thing appears burnt to a crisp. This video, if nothing else, proves that this guy probably needs a new hobby.
