Where's the disclamer saying no bugs where hurt while filming this video? That was pretty cool. That's thinking out the box.

This has to be the coolest video demo EVER.

That was awesome! Wish the video was longer ... Something oddly intriguing about bugs charging a cell phone. So original!

The fact that you all are so excited about a staged episode of carnival nonsense makes me afraid for the future of humanity.
