Media Guardian comments as this tops the new Viral Video chart:
“”I love my new iPhone. It does everything. But will it blend?”

No!

No no no!

Oh yes.

“Will it blend?” is not a complicated phenomenon, which certainly goes some of the way to explaining why it has become such an internet sensation. Stuff gets put in a blender, and that’s about it. Previous experiments have included EZ Cheese (in the tin), pickled pigs’ feet and light bulbs – all of which are deemed unsafe to attempt to blend at home.

Should you happen to have your own indestructible blender and a surplus of time, you could try credit cards or a McDonalds Extra Value Meal though it has to be noted that the ‘try this at home’ list is considerably shorter.

I feel it is my duty to point out that this bizarre blending cult speaks volumes about our fetishism of consumer objects, not to mention the rather vulgar destruction of a gadget that costs more than half the world’s population earns in a year.

So what is the motivation? Well, it shouldn’t be a surprise to find that the culprit is a firm called Blendtec, a blender manufacturer, and its bespectacled founder Tom Dickson. He’s trying to do for blenders what Victor Kiam did for shavers.”

Will a blender blend I wonder?
