Blendtec is a company that makes a line of very powerful blenders. "Will It Blend" is a hilarious viral marketing campaign starring the CEO of Blendtec, Tom Dickson. Part inventor, part business owner, and part showman , Mr. Dickson has made an art out of destroying hundreds of different things in his Blendtec blenders to show their power and durability.
Here we look at some of the greatest "Will It Blend" video clips that feature some of the most expensive items ever blended. Years of research and development, stunning design and technology, and blended to dust in just a few seconds! You'll probably notice that Apple products such as the iPad and iPhone make up many of the videos, but don't worry Microsoft and Google products get blended too. These are dangerous and should not be attempted at home.
Guitar Hero III
Tom Dickson has blended a bunch of video games on Will It Blend. But on Will It Blend? Guitar Hero III, he doesn't just blend the game, he blends the entire guitar controller! Rock and roll baby. Next time include the Beach Boys on the game so you do not anger the mighty Mr. Dickson.
Kinect for XBox 360
Microsoft tried to one up Nintendo's Wii with a motion controlled add on for their XBox 360 gaming console. Kinect tracks your body motion and translates that into in game action making the Wii controller seem a bit dated. But Dickson here sets Kinect into motion but not in the way Microsoft planned.
Tom's Tom Tom
Don't you hate when your GPS leads you on some strange route, takes you in the wrong direction, or can't even find the address? Most of us just reset the GPS and try again. Not Tom. His GPS troubleshooting solution is extreme but ensures the Tom Tom will never mislead him again.
Sonim XP3300 Force - One Tough Cell Phone

Apple iPod MP3 Player
One of the earlier Apple iPod high capacity models put to the Blendtec test. It fails quickly and Tom effectively silences the music. Almost painful to watch!
Original Apple iPhone
What better way to celebrate the release of one of the most innovative cell phones ever developed? By throwing it in a blender and watching the magic happen. Watching the first Apple iPhone being destroyed must have been painful to watch back in 2007 for those who couldn't even get their hands on one for weeks!
See if you can even watch this one. Will It Blend? tackles the original Apple iPad tablet. But it doesn't fit in the blender so Tom takes matters into his own hands. It's amazing he left it turned on while blending. Amazing technology: smashed and blended for your viewing pleasure.
Apple iPad 2
Styled after an Apple Event, this Will It Blend? features a stage, a Steve Jobs impersonator, and of course Tom Dickson with one of his Blendtec blenders and makes something else out of the magical and revolutionary Apple iPad. Tom uses the same technique as the original iPad blending to get the tablet into his blender. It's almost painful to watch such a marvel of technology like the new iPad get smashed and trashed.
Apple iPhone 4S
