Challenge of the day: Try and find someone who has never heard the generic iPhone ringtone. Only stipulation, they must be under the age of 60 years old. It’s a tone we all know so well. In the distance you hear it and for some weird reason, knowing you have a personalized ringtone, you check your phone anyway.
YouTube user MetroGnome blew the minds of iPhone enthusiasts and non-iPhone owners alike two days ago when he uploaded the most angelic and legitimate iPhone ringtone remix. This video has generated over 285,000 views and can now be found in my iTunes with its free download. Close to 5,000 thumbs up and 55 misguided individuals hit thumbs down.
How fast can this be synced to your phone? Not fast enough.
MetroGnome has many similar remix videos that highlight pop culture such as Breaking Bad, Ellie Goulding, Rihanna, David Guetta, Led Zeppelin, Florence + The Machine, and Maroon 5. To summarize his profile, the only words in his About section are “I make beats and stuff.” This video will be sure to bump up his YouTube subscribers, he currently sits just under 60,000.
Thank you, MetroGnome. iPhones thank you, spoiled 13-year-old girls thank you, the 53-year-old “cool dads” thank you, and Steve Jobs may or may not thank you.
