People will believe any damn thing. This is a fact. And should you decide that now might be a fine time to work out your contrarian muscles and not take my word for it, I give you this.
Oh come on, Steve. This is so obviously a terrible idea, not to mention a prank. It would never work and there’s no way anybody would fall for it.

Sean Solomon posted underneath the video: ‘I don’t know what I was thinking. I actually drilled about half way and realised that this is retarded and you were f****** we me. Now what to I do?’
Fellow commenters, as an argument can be made they should, offered helpful suggestions like wash the phone in soapy water for 15 minutes and then give it a shake to get the drill shavings out before you put the headphones in and if you give me your credit card info, I’ll help you fix this.
So just to make sure we have this absolutely clear, do not drill holes in your phone…unless you want to, of course. Who am I to tell you what to do with something you own? But if your aim is to get around the idiotic removal of the headphone jack before the invention of wireless headphones that don’t suck and smartphone batteries that do likewise, it’s not gonna work. It’ll end about as well as that time you charged your last iPhone in the microwave. Yes, I know you did that. You have to be the same person.
