    Whoa. I’m not even trying that in the next life.

  2. superset says:

    I’m no expert, but I say that is totally fake.

  3. themindfantastic says:

    can’t sleep nyarlathotep will eat me (with cazed wild eyed expression on my face).

  4. Abby says:

    I seriously considered doing this to my razr after I upgraded. A blowtorch seems a better option, though.

  5. mdhatter says:

    So that’s how you call him!?!

  6. proto says:

    Hmm. . . I had a phone just like that — then I dumped AT&T for one of the lesser Outer Gods (Verizon, I think he’s called). Horrible beyond anything you can imagine — but wonderful! Can you hear me now?

  7. Agent 86 says:

    I hope this is for another Call of Cthulhu videogame!

  8. Dillenger69 says:

    I bet this is a viral video for some movie coming out.

  9. Not a Doktor says:

    oh hey that reminds me I have to call my mom

  10. appliance says:

    This is an ad for Tracfone. Not so cool as a Cthulu video game.

  11. RyanH says:

    It’s well done, but I can’t help but feel they cheated a little using the white flashes to try and disguise switches between the real/CG and stages of the effect.

  12. Tenn says:

    This was posted on a couple of popular blogs, but this is the only post I’ve seen that lacks the clarification that the video is fake.

    It’s fake?!

  13. pauldrye says:

    That’s not Nyarlathotep, that’s a Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath. Because knowing is half the — well, OK, it’s not going to help. But you’d know.

  14. clueless in brooklyn says:

    I’m totally clueless with this one (in brooklyn, of course)

  15. noen says:

    F*cking awesome.

  16. Zan says:

    Wow, I have the exact same microwave!

  17. Anonymous says:

    As fun as this looks – how many really nasty chemicals am I likely to inhale/come into contact with if I try this?

  18. Enochrewt says:

    I believe the technical is Freaky deaky.

    Yowzers.

  19. Jake0748 says:

    Coolest thing I’ve seen all day.

    No, I won’t be trying this at home.

  20. arkizzle says:

    YAY! That was quality!

  21. Alan says:

    I’m not trying this at home. I’m trying it at work.

  22. nex says:

  23. Scuba SM says:

    And that, my friends, is why you should never attempt microwave experiments without friendly Mr. 12GA nearby. Not that it’d really help in this case, but if you summoned say, a Doom Imp…

  24. Anonymous says:

    If you needed clarification that microwaving a cell phone does not, in actual point of fact, call up screaming supernatural horrors, you should not have a microwave, or anything that makes you a bigger danger to yourself than you already are.

    I was impressed by the video, though. I was expecting more of a Bill Beatty-style “you can melt glass in a microwave thing” than the shoggoth, so it was startling.

  25. UnderRat says:

    All I got was a crappy Shoggoth. Sprint sucks.

  26. Camillo Miller says:

    “And it was then that Nyarlathotep came out of Egypt. Who he was, none could tell, but he was of the old native blood and looked like a CellPhone.”

    Thanks from your beloved Lovecraft Dork

    I would really love to know how they did that. plus not a good thing to be watching when sleep deprived, the tag should have said “do not attempt to watch”.
