People Are Changing Their Names to ‘iPhone 7’ Now, Damn it

Here we are, in 2016, an age of gender equality initiatives, body positivity movements, and maybe flying cars soon.

Very progressive stuff, and yet there are also people like this guy, who actually changed his name to iPhone 7.

This is not what George Costanza wanted.


This story comes to us from Ukraine, where a 20-year-old formerly known as Olexander Turin legally changed his name to that of Apple’s latest phone after an electronics store said they’d give away free iPhone 7s to the first five people to undergo the eponymous initiative.

Unbelievable, truly, and yet he has the passport to prove it.


“It was difficult to accept that and hard to believe it’s true,” said iPhone 7’s sister, Tetyana Panina, on behalf of everyone. “Each person in this world is looking for a way to express himself. Why not to do that in this way?” she then added with misguided praise.

Some outlets are praising his “next-level commitment” while Teen Vogue called the man a ‘mad genius’, which is wrong.

No phone is worth this.
