Nintendo 3DS microwaved in the name of insanity

Nintendo's latest portable handheld gets a dramatic makeover in this explosive video.

A Nintendo 3DS engulfed in flames. With all that's wrong in the world, this is exactly what we need people to be doing with their time. Kenny Irwin

Nintendo has a lot going for it right now, but none of that really matters to Microwave Theater host Kenny Irwin, who maniacally microwaves electronics and other miscellaneous objects.

The latest victim is a mint aqua blue Nintendo 3DS, which is completely incinerated in a four-minute video that is beyond absurd.

After setting the microwave to full power, the $250 3DS takes about half a minute to explode and burst into flames. Be sure to turn down your volume after the 2:30 mark, as the narrator can't seem to contain his excitement at destroying the portable game console. After scraping off the burned remains with a spatula, he offers it for sale for nearly a thousand dollars. What a bargain.

The only common sense found in the video is the warning that people should not attempt this at home.

Irwin, a self-described artist, innovator, and inventor, has somehow marched on past 15 minutes of fame after we first got to know him in the microwaved iPad 3G video . His YouTube channel has ballooned to more than 14 million views and he even appeared on the Conan O'Brien show.

I'm not sure if I'd leave my microwave alone in a room with this guy after listening to his banter.
