Proof That We Shouldn't Do Unboxings: Apple Remote

You may wonder if any of us at Cinema Blend have actually bought a gadget or two. Itís clear that weíve never done one of those unboxing posts or videos. I assure you Iíve bought items in the last month such as a PS3 and Canon Rebel EOS XTi. Items that at some point in time would have been worthy of an unboxing. Heck, I received a digital kitchen scale that also would have fit the unboxing mold. Thereís just one problem, my unboxing of anything would go horribly wrong.
I recently purchased a headset to use on the Weekly Blend Audio Show, and was elated to discover a little tab that instructed me to ďpull here.Ē When I did the plastic covering my headset magically came apart. It was a joyous moment as I briefly flashed back to decades of fidgeting and fighting with gadget packaging. So Iíve decided to share with you one manís hilarious attempt to open a simple box as a replacement for all unboxings. Just imagine this video and replace the Apple Remote with whatever new fangled gizmo I may have purchased.
Also watch as the gentleman states heíd like to keep the box only to give it the patented two handed ripping apart technique a moment later. My favorite part is where he takes apart the cardboard piece the remote was mounted to only to find nothing in between the spaces. How many times have any of us done the exact same thing? I wonder if we truly expect to find some super special prize in these spots. As if the manufacturer decided we deserved a fancy Diggum sticker or a Halloween mask of the gadget we just bought.
