Mountain Rednecks Destroy PS3 On Video

There are just some things I don’t think I’ll ever understand: why curling is an Olympic sport, how The Nanny managed to avoid cancellation for six seasons, exactly what people were thinking when they thought OJ’s new book sounded like a good financial decision, but now I’ve found something far more stupefying than any of these questions.

It seems that two hillbilly redneck Unabomber wannabes self-proclaimed “mountain men” 360 fanboys took it upon themselves to physically abuse and obliterate a 60 gigabyte PS3. Exactly why did they do this? Simply to be a couple of braying jackasses (seriously, just try listening to the cameraman’s laugh and imagining it coming from anything other than a mule) who are taunting a lot of gamers simply because they like a console different than the Xbox 360.

Now, while I find sites like Smash My PS3 to be pointless and dumb, their gadget-smashing is born out of a weird publicity stunt that’s more bizarre than mean-spirited. These guys, while insulting the PS3 and trumpeting the 360’s “inevitable” victory over Sony’s console because it’s already been out for a year, reveal just how petty and small and moronic they are with their little demonstration. Even weirder, though, is the fact that we never actually see the system itself being destroyed… only the box:

While the motive here is certainly clear, and the tools used to inflict punishment are indeed respectable, you’d think someone willing to trash $600 (not to mention to probable near-death experience trying to acquire one) would actually show the PS3 within the box. But alas, no “real” proof is ever shown.

Personally, I find people that would do something like this to obviously have something wrong with them.
I’m no fan of the 360, but I certainly wouldn’t chainsaw one in half, that’s just wasteful and juvenile.

Did he at least get a hardon doing it?

At least the “Smash My” people smash indescriminitely. These peple are lame for not just selling it on eBay. Why go through all the trouble to break it? (I’m pretty sure the “Smash My” people actually make money off it.)

Tools with their tools.

People get satisfaction out of the stupidest things. Ouch, this is such a crushing blow to me, this proves the 360 is better, right? Wrong, this only shows me how much closer we are to “pull-grandma’s-plug!” or “Fluffy-has-rabies-and-must-be-put-down.com”

HEY!

what’s with all THE NANNY hate?

>:(

The Nanny was one of those TV programs so awful that it violated the Geneva Convention, if for no other reason than the fact that Fran Drescher’s accent can be considered a social disease. Case closed. ;)

lame.

you know they didn’t even destroy it…they’re just braying turds with a videocamera. besides if they spent 650 dollars just to make a videotape…they lose.
