Some people find product-unboxing videos entertaining; others dismiss them as the worst kind of clickbait. “Do we really need to sit through five minutes (or more than a dozen slideshow images) of some random tech reporter popping open a cardboard box?” the latter asks.
According to the various tech publications that keep producing unboxing videos, the answer is apparently “yes,” probably because the amount of clicks and views more than justifies annoying a subset of readers. But Clickhole, The Onion’s parody of websites such as BuzzFeed and Upworthy, is here to provide a little relief to anyone who ever clicked over to his or her favorite tech website, saw a story about unboxing the latest Samsung Galaxy or Xbox, and rolled their eyes in annoyance.
Clickhole’s video unboxing of the iPhone 6 starts out in a pretty typical fashion… and then gets very, very, very strange. Check it out.
