Finally, iPhone marketing we can support

Those weirded out and frankly fed up with the fawning attention given to the introduction of a certain new phone can support the newest “Will it Blend?” video from Blendtec blenders. The new-style infomercials, which we wrote about earlier, draw tens of thousands of viewers (and even turn a profit) by blending items like glow sticks and pieces of wood. Having already liquified an iPod, Blendtec CEO Tom Dickson takes on the iPhone In the newest video, posted to YouTube this week. Steve Jobs would not be happy at the black smoky mess his prized contraption becomes after Tom presses the smoothie button. Blendtec is auctioning off the destroyed iPhone on eBay (condition: used). Current bid: $380.
