Please do not attempt.
Cellphone in Microwave [Dark Roasted Blend]
I believe the technical is Freaky deaky.
Coolest thing I’ve seen all day.
No, I won’t be trying this at home.
I’m not trying this at home. I’m trying it at work.
All I got was a crappy Shoggoth. Sprint sucks.
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”.
Whoa. I’m not even trying that in the next life.
I’m no expert, but I say that is totally fake.
can’t sleep nyarlathotep will eat me (with cazed wild eyed expression on my face).
I seriously considered doing this to my razr after I upgraded. A blowtorch seems a better option, though.
So that’s how you call him!?!
I bet this is a viral video for some movie coming out.
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.
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.
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…
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 â€” but wonderful! Can you hear me now?
oh hey that reminds me I have to call my mom
As fun as this looks – how many really nasty chemicals am I likely to inhale/come into contact with if I try this?
YAY! That was quality!
“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’m totally clueless with this one (in brooklyn, of course)
Wow, I have the exact same microwave!
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.
I hope this is for another Call of Cthulhu videogame!
This is an ad for Tracfone. Not so cool as a Cthulu video game.
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.
