Never underestimate the power of stupidity in the face of an Internet trend.

Per Daily Dot, two 15-year-old UK residents going by the names of “Kylie” and “Danny” recorded footage of themselves entering an iPhone 6 Plus and bending at least one iPhone 6 Plus handset, using the display table as leverage.

Since the iPhone 6 was released two weeks ago, it’s been plagued by claims that it’s easy to accidentally bend, something multiple people have already put to the test in videos. But not like this.

The two uploaded the following video, which was later removed, then reposted via a mirror.

Without a contract, the iPhone 6 Plus retails at US$649.

The pair later offered the following apology video, wherein at least one of the teens seems to take responsibility regarding the incident.

Please be advised that the apology is less than family friendly/safe for work due to a proclivity of F-bombs from the teenager apologizing, so proceed with caution before playing it out loud before sensitive ears.

There’s no word as to what legal action will result from this, but we’ll provide details as they become available.
