Watch as an Apple iPhone makes it through an elephant's digestive system

Watch as an Apple iPhone makes it through an elephant's digestive system
Here's an incredible video that we do not recommend to those with a squeamish constitution. Now out in Thailand, a pair of women decided that they wanted to take some pictures of an elephant using their phones. The elephant, perhaps curious to know what the fuss is all about, used his trunk to suck the device out of the hand of one of the tourists. The ladies approached the guide who looked inside the pachyderm's mouth. Sorry guys, better check the other end.

And now, this is where are story gets good. Nature calls and the animal leaves behind a quantity of dung. The other tourist has a bright idea. She makes a call to see if they can hear the sound of the other phone ringing so they can focus in on where in this pile it might be. Sure enough, the phone rings. Perhaps showing how real life imitates art, the guide decides to copy Laura Dern's scene in 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.

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.

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.

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