Watch as an Apple iPhone makes it through an elephant's digestive system
Jurassic Park when she sticks her hand in Triceratop poop. Lo and behold, there is the Apple iPhone. Sure it stinks, but it still works.
The general consensus is that this is all faked,and if you look at the girls' action, they do seem to be quite 'silent movie' with the overstated physical movement. And speaking of movement, some feel that the handset passed through the elephant's system too fast. Whether it is real or faked, we don't see Apple using any of this footage in a commercial for the Apple iPhone.

It should probably cost $10/gram taking note that the poop has been furnished with an iPhone and the elephant should cost a fortune more as it's system has been Appl(i)ed...iLephant!!

That's so ridiculous. They could have at least tried to make it look real. I don't know much about the digestive system of elephants, but I can't imagine the phone would come out that quickly unless they came back the next day, but they all are wearing the same clothes, so I doubt that was the case. Also, that phone is oddly clean for having gone through an elephant's insides & being buried in a ton of poop. I call bulls**t.

It seems as though most of PA's articles come from an elephant's anus as well.

Lol, yeah...a l'le hybrid prototype though. He's smaller, more Apple inclined. His mind is like that of the terminator having one mission. Terminate non Apple followers.

Apple will diffidently file a lawsuit against either the woman or the elephant.

Now we know where iPhones come from, Foxcom production secrets are now reveled. The factory is in an Indian elephant park, then phones are shipped to china for cleaning and packaging

No, Apple will use this to deny insurance claims.

Hermm, since when does the HTC One X has a physical iPhone like home button? I can't see a physical home button on mine...

Any phone would have made it. No animal can digest the materials of a cellphone.

That looks so fake, it was like they were filming from a phone of a phone and camera wildly swinging showing you them feeding the elephant so you know that is coming. They give a fake phone. Cause the phone would have been in roaming inside the elephant and battery did in 3 hours or less.
