KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 28 — A local fried chicken seller has amused TikTok users after he accidentally became an ‘iPhone reviewer’ for frying his phone.

The seller, whose TikTok username is @zaiem_ainn, was trying to do a video demonstration of his frying method before the phone slipped out and fell into the hot boiling oil filled with chicken.

In the short clip, the seller is heard explaining to his viewers about the level of oil needed to ensure a crispier fried chicken.

As he was trying to lower down the fire, his phone which was recording the whole thing fell into the pot, thus giving viewers a glimpse of what it’s like being ‘fried’.

A sizzling crisp sound was also heard momentarily before the phone was fished out from the pot by the seller.

Fortunately, the iPhone survived the trip.

“Thank you iPhone, your product is of excellent quality,” he wrote in the video.

He was also seen replying in the comment section that he is using the iPhone 13 Pro model to record the video and the phone was undamaged aside from a slight distortion where the sound is concerned.

The short clip has been viewed over 800,000 times on TikTok with many local users finding it amusing.

Some TikTok users were also seen trading jokes in the comment section.

“So this is what it looks like when being fried,” commented user @Epulz.Aiman.

“The phone is not just waterproof but ‘fried-proof’ as well,” added user @davissonD.

“At least dip the phone in flour before frying it,” commented user @K.

“The rarest iPhone review ever,” added user @Haiqal’s.
