Lenovo Thinkpad:

Torture Tests

ThinkPad X1 Yoga is tough… so tough it survives 12 military specs and over 200 durability tests. But what about when it’s put through severe torture while playing a music video by world champion beatboxer, Rahzel? Versus, Erwin Penland, and Lenovo decided to find out. Versus was challenged to feature the product through real, relatable, human scenarios in the actual ways our devices get abused day in and day out.

All of the torture tests in this film were carried out while a single ThinkPad played an original Rahzel track and accompanying video. We hear and see the entire song play out as the film match-cuts from one extreme and gritty scenario to the next, with the atmospheric sound of each scene retained to keep a natural sensibility. In the end, the music never stops, and neither does the ThinkPad.
