Uri Geller Claims "Mind Powers" Might be Behind iPhone 6 Bendgate

By Gary Cutlack on at

Everyone's favourite pretend psychic has weighed in on the "bendgate" iPhone 6 scandal, and seeing as he's one of the world's foremost benders we really ought to listen to what he has to say.

Speaking to Marketwatch, Geller said: "...somehow the energy and excitement of the 10 million people who purchased iPhones has awakened their mind powers and caused the phones to bend," adding that he simply can't believe Apple could allow its phone to be manufactured wil such an obvious flaw. So it must be awakened latent psychic powers and not thin aluminium colliding with the trend for overly tight trousers.

Ever the self-promotional genius, Geller added: "I urge Apple to hire me to explain to the world that this is not the company’s fault at all. I don't own an iPhone 6 -- I'm loyal to my BlackBerry and would never change -- but if I did I have no doubt I could bend it with my mind." [Marketwatch via Cnet]
