    This Football Player Blew Up His iPhone After Trying To Charge It In The Microwave

    "It looked fully legit."

    Rugby League player Nu Brown has confessed to blowing up his own iPhone after trying to charge it in a microwave.

    Nu Brown seems like an intelligent man...

    It seems Brown got the idea from a famous YouTube clip (which is, uh, obviously fake) and thought he'd try it out himself.

    Plenty of people had a laugh at Brown's expense, with some wondering if they could pull off some of the older scams in internet history as well.

    So, putting your iPhone in the microwave doesn't charge it. It blows it the fuck up. You're welcome, Nu Brown.
