Pancake Friday: watch the venerable Nokia 3310 get totally obliterated by a heavy duty hydraulic press

The iconic Nokia 3310 has an almost legendary status, universally lauded as the indestructible phone, and its alleged sturdiness is only surpassed by the Internet's ability to turn anything into a meme. Admit it, you've seen at least a healthy dozen of pictures, comics, or whatnot depicting the alleged and quite exaggerated strength of this simplistic Nokia phone released roughly 16 years ago. 

If we are to check out all of the humorous memes out there, we might be led to believe that the Nokia 3310 is imbued in Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, Chuck Norris personal phone, used to cut down diamonds, or even the reason behind the creation of the Mariana Trench, but sadly, none of these are true. Actually, we've been often shown that this vaunted phone is as fragile as any other, you just need to apply the right amount of force.

And this is the main forte of a hydraulic press! So, what would happen if you pit the indestructible Nokia 3310 against an industrial machine that is capable of exerting tons of pressure? Find out right below. Well, we suppose that it might boot one last time if they power it off and on again...

PA the video is fake. If it is real, the press wouldn't have survived

Don't worry people, that press was made by the same materials as Nokia 3310. Thats the secret.

The hydraulic press had embedded 3310's on it, further proving the diamond theory: you need something of equal strength to damage itself.

The Hydraulic press must have been made from several 3310s, the only thing that can destroy a 3310 is more 3310s.
