Don’t be fooled by Apple ads that tell you to bend your iPhone 6
But we don’t have to tell you that, right?
The objective of /b/’s prank is to use various Apple-inspired ads to convince gullible owners to bend their phones as a way to improve their screen angle and give it a “unique shape.”
The prank has been unofficially called Bend.
This prank follows just a week after /b/ tried fooling people into microwaving their iPhone 6’s in order to unlock some special feature. That prank was called iWave.
In case you don’t trust your BS meter (or know an iPhone user who’s particularly dupable), here are some of the other /b/ Bend ads to watch out for.
