It seems safe to say that most people who have gotten their hands on the iPhone 7 Plus have been focused on keeping it as pristine as possible. But in the case of one Ukrainian tech vlogger, the exact opposite was true.

YouTube user TechRax shared a video Wednesday of himself visiting the world's tallest building, Dubai's Burj Khalifa, for a special reason — to drop his new iPhone from the 148th floor.

In the clip, TechRax tosses the phone off the observation deck to fall 2,717 feet before heading back down to try and track where it fell. Unsurprisingly, he is unable to locate it.

"This thing is fried," he says. "It's just completely destroyed. The impact hit it to the point where I can't track it."
