There is no shortage of gadget mutilation videos on YouTube. Especially videos of iPhones. And especially on TechRax’s channel: The dude’s run an iPhone over, shot one, boiled one, torched one, and more. This time, he’s pouring smoking black tar all over a shiny new device. As you watch the scorching liquid of doom…

YouTube’s attempt to break into the original content game isn’t anything revolutionary. In fact, you could say that they’re late to the party Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix are throwing. And in some desperate attempt to fit in, they’ve taken view counts off of YouTube Red shows.
Against my better judgment, I surrendered my credit card information to YouTube today so that I could watch the first episode of the first YouTube Red original series: Scare Pewdiepie.
