On last night’s “Tosh.0,” Daniel Tosh revealed that Apple gave him a new iPad to try out before the product goes on sale. And then he promptly cut to video of him laying waste to it with a golf club. The video below shows the damage nicely, but it leaves out Tosh’s unbridled joy at destroying something that any number of tech geeks would sell their souls to try before the launch date:
“We never even turned it on! [laughs] Ohhhh… how does that feel, nerds?”
I’m not quite sure why I enjoyed that so much. I think part of it has to do with Apple loyalists’ condescension to anything that isn’t a Mac, but what I really enjoy is Tosh’s unabashed meanness. I’d pay good money to watch him push people down the stairs. Or I could push people down the stairs, and he could laugh at them. The point is, more people should be getting pushed down the stairs.
