The viral video about an iPhone setting steel wool on fire is FAKE, but many people do not know WHY it’s fake.
In this article and our video, we will explain why the video of the iPhone setting steel wool on fire is fake, and cannot possibly happen.
The iPhone Set Steel Wool On Fire HOAX!
The viral video of an iPhone setting steel wool on fire was posted by ViralVideoLab, a YouTube channel that appears to primarily create fake videos that they hope will go viral and make them money through YouTube ads.
To make this video go viral, they gave it a clickbait title – Mobile Phone vs Steel Wool | How Your iPhone Will Damage Your Brain. They even PLEAD with everyone to share the video, before it gets deleted.
ViralVideoLab even wrote a fictional story about how not knowing why an incoming call would cause the steel wool to ignite, and invited people to share their opinions in the comments.
Well, we will show you why we know their video is FAKE, and why it is not possible for the iPhone or any smartphone to set steel wool on fire.
iPhone Steel Wool Fire Hoax Explained + Debunked!
In this video, we will show you the fake video that ViralVideoLab created, and explain what he did and debunk it.
When he started recording his video, he used a tripod but for no reason at all, the video started swaying just before the incoming call came in.
It may appear that he started holding the camera with his hands, instead of a tripod. But if you look carefully, the swaying was too steady, and moved in a particular pattern.
Fireproof Steel Wool!
And this is important – despite burning for 11 seconds, the steel wool does not disintegrate.
As The King of Random demonstrated in his clip on steel wool, once it catches fire, steel wool burns up very quickly and disintegrates.
Yet, in ViralVideoLab‘s video, his steel wool remains intact even after burning for 11 seconds.
Where Is The Electrical Current Coming From?
It’s not possible for EM radiation to remotely create electrical current flow in steel wool.
The 9V battery only ignited the steel wool because it formed a short circuit between its positive and negative terminals!
It Catches Fire AWAY From The Radiation?
Even if it was possible for EM radiation to generate electrical current in the steel wool, the inner side would catch fire first.
Yet in the ViralVideoLab video, it’s the opposite – the outer side catches fire first – AWAY from the radiation.
It Should Catch Fire IMMEDIATELY!
Smartphones like the iPhone 6 are constantly in contact with nearby cell towers, and “radiate” all the time.
If its EM radiation can really set steel wool on fire, it would have done so even without an incoming call.
iPhone Steel Wool Fire Hoax : Just Video Editing, Folks!
Some people have said that ViralVideoLab could have hidden batteries under the steel wool.
But based on the steady swaying motion of his camera, and the fact his steel wool is literally fireproof, all he did was add some flame effects to his video.
Here is a great explanation by Recursosgraficos, which we edited for clarity :
It is a special effect created with a video editor.
You record the first video with the camera attached to a tripod and add a movement effect.
Then remove the phone and set fire to different parts of the steel wool and record the second video.
You can now morph the second video of the steel wool on fire with the first video.
Now that you know ViralVideoLab just makes fake videos, stop sharing their videos. And definitely DO NOT SUBSCRIBE to their YouTube channel.
