Video of the Day: Mobile Phone Throwing World Championship

You may be surprised to learn that the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championship is in its twelfth year. That's right — people from around the world gather in Finland every August to hurl cellphones as far as they possibly can.

This year all of the glory went to Finnish teenager, Ere Karjalainen. Karjalainen explains in a video below by The Telegraph that he prepared for his record-breaking throw (roughly 333 feet) by getting drunk the night before.
