Do Not Taunt Happy Fun 3D TV

16 Apr

Samsung has taken a cue from Saturday Night Live for the warnings on their new 3D TVs, according to the Consumerist.

In a bit of copy straight from the Happy Fun Ball commercial, Samsung warns that:

Children and teenagers may be more susceptible to health issues when viewing 3D content on their televisions.

Pregnant woman, the elderly and anyone under the influence of alcohol should refrain from watching programming in 3D.

Wearing 3D glasses for any other purpose may be physically harmful and could weaken your eyesight.

So just remember folks, if your Samsung 3D TV should begin to smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head. And as always when not in use, your Samsung 3D TV should be returned to its special container and kept under refrigeration.

Okay, I might have added those last couple.

Yes, Apple has received a patent for what was previously thought to be, according to the Daily Mail, an April Fools joke.

I guess the joke’s on us, we’ll buy anything with a lower case ‘i’ in front of it.
