Apple designed their iPhone to be capable of withstanding a lot of things. Is "being covered in molten tar" among them? Let's find out.

This individual on YouTube, TechRax, has a channel upon which he essentially brutalizes pieces of technology. Whether it's the iPhone or Samsung, he's pretty fair in his willingness and enthusiasm in the destruction of cell phones and such.

I'd like to know where he gets them, how he affords to do this, and the answer to perhaps the most confounding aspect of this entire internet experiment he has going on: Why? Why do you do this?

Whatever his reason, check it out below as we watch an iPhone get turned into asphalt.

Now my question is less "Why do you do this, my man?" and more "Why can't I stop watching videos of this guy doing this and why do I find this so incredibly satisfying?"
