Calculator Unboxing Video Parody Is Hilarious
Unboxing videos are something of a tease, where you get to see someone tear open a brand new gadget without you experiencing any of the joy yourself.

We have created several unboxing videos ourselves […]

This Terrible Unboxing Of The Nokia Lumia 920 Is Impressive And Entertaining

After which there is […]

It has not exactly flew off the shelves in terms of sales figures in the Land of the Rising Sun, so hopefully the rather slow start is not an omen of things to come.
