While you check your email daily waiting on an update that says you’re new iPhone 7 is on its way, these jackasses are tossing them off buildings. TechRax, a vlogger known for doing crazy things puts the iPhone 7 Plus to the the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Standing a towering 2,717 feet above the ground, the vlogger tosses the phone while attempting to capture its descent on a GoPro.

Ignoring the fact that this would almost certainly kill below with a direct hit, the drop (over half a mile) should lead to some impressive footage of the damage once it makes contact.

Unfortunately, they weren’t able to find the phone. Serious fail, guys.
