Samsung has the original video of a GTA V mod that turns the Galaxy Note 7 into a bomb taken down


Last updated: October 19th, 2016 at 21:19 UTC+02:00

Remember the video of the Grand Theft Auto V mod that replaces the traditional in-game sticky bomb with a recalled Galaxy Note 7? If you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the clip without realizing it as it quickly went viral for poking harmless fun at Samsung’s ongoing exploding smartphone crisis.

However, it would appear that the manufacturer didn’t see the funny side of the tweak as it’s now filed a bogus copyright claim to have the video pulled from YouTube. It’s worth noting, though, that the creator hasn’t actually copied anything as the mod is merely a parody of a real world situation, which means that Samsung is abusing the DCMA tool.

Fortunately, there are a slew of other videos available on YouTube that showcase the mod just as good as the clip that was taken down, including the one embedded below. If you are planning on watching it, we recommend that you turn up the volume on your device before hitting the Play button as the commentary is actually pretty funny.
