A Samsung G5 allegedly fell 1,000 feet from a private plane, and lived to tell the tale — and tell it did, thanks to its switched-on video recording function.
YouTube user Robert Ryan posted the video on Sunday, taken by his uncle Blake Henderson’s Samsung G5, of the smartphone purportedly plummeting from the sky after Henderson’s aircraft hit some nasty turbulence.
The lucky mobile lands in a home garden, seemingly in Kentucky. After about seven minutes, it’s discovered by a couple bemused gardeners.
“Here’s your phone,” says one.
“How’d it get down there?” replies the other.
“This ain’t my phone … mine is my my pocket,” the confused gardener says. “It’s got recording on, too!”
If your phone has ever shattered after falling off a couch, the 11-minute video comes with a side of frustration. This device’s supposed 1,000 feet journey was roughly the length of the Chrysler Building, which is 1,049 feet tall.
One YouTube user expressed doubt about the validity of the video in a comment.
“Dunno, this seems like a viral video made to sell Samsung phones,” said Jonathan Chan.
Ryan quickly replied: “If I weren’t the one who posted I would completely agree. Only reason I mentioned the type of phone was because I was asked, so I hope that means something bud. #hailcorporate.”
