Hilarious ‘GTA V’ Note 7 Bomb Mod Video Sued by Samsung

A ‘GTA V’ modder has just nailed what most of us think about Samsung’s exploding ex-flagship Galaxy Note 7, by turning the phone into an in-game grenade and publishing an absolutely hilarious video on YouTube in which he goes on to demonstrate what can happen to a person who still uses a Note 7 (I almost fell off the chair laughing as I watched it).

Q 100

Although the video is funny as hell, the South Korean company doesn’t think so and has apparently filed a bogus copyright infringement claim on the video (via Engadget).

“If you try to watch the video now, you’ll see that Samsung has blocked it by using YouTube’s tools for reporting infringing material. Of course, this isn’t how those tools were meant to be used — they’re for reporting instances in which video or audio is posted in violation of copyright. Using the Note 7’s likeness in a video made from a video game mod doesn’t really seem like what YouTube’s tools are meant to be used for.”

Without further ado, I’m gonna leave you guys with the funniest video you’ll watch all day. Don’t forget to share your thoughts after watching:

    It was very funny though.

  • Especially that part where the plane blows up 😛

  • Aleks Oniszczak

    Looks like fair use to me. At least in the US, satire is legal.

  • Adrian Martinez

    Most funny stuff for 2016 lol

  • Joe Peplowski

    Is anyone actually getting sued though?

  • gerry

    I got a kick out of it when inside the Ammunation store and was looking at all the items, until the Note 7 showed up LOL.

    Dude don’t mess with those Asians. They cannot take a joke. You got them pissed they’ll come after your dog.
