Stephen Colbert's instructions for safely returning the Galaxy Note 7 are hilarious

Known for technology-related gags, the Stephen Colbert late night show couldn't resist poking fun at the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The comedy is centered around the process of returning the dangerous handset to Samsung using the fairly elaborate fire-proof packaging supplied by the company. 

As you may know, Samsung did actually send out return kits to customers that feature safety gloves, protective boxes, and other items reminiscent of tools for handling a bomb. To satirize the unfortunate circumstances, the comedians added their own special touches to the procedure, which you will see in Colbert's short video guide to safely returning a Galaxy Note 7 back to Samsung.

Hopefully, the company won't be as angry as to take the video down like it did with the one showing the GTA V mod where the player uses a Note 7 to blow up all sorts of things.

They can't. Even their DMCA take down yesterday was not legal. Satire is exempt so long as your claims aren't spurious.
