As a computer repairman, what are the odds that your client’s computer problem is beans?
And we’re not talking about some fancy computer terminology here like cookies or spam, we’re talking about the fiber-rich staple that we all love to add to our South American cooking.
“I’m surprised that is has been working for as long as it has.”
Charles Ross runs Vlog Creations, a YouTube channel filled with practical jokes ranging from the most inane to the downright sophisticated.
His pranks are so elaborate that he was actually arrested for some of them, but it has never stopped him from providing entertainment to his over two million subscribers.
In this episode, he opens up his computer and scoops in an entire can of beans. And then another, then another, and then another, until the whole unit looked like a weekend barbecue side dish that no one will touch.
Apparently, it’s not only humans that beans can make gassy.
Once they turned the PC on, smoke began belching out from every hole as the beans were cooked into burnt perfection.
The PC even freaked the boys out with sparks and pops, and so Ross pulled the plug saying that the beans were “done.”
“I cannot wait for him to get here. I’m so excited. And I’m gonna play it as stupid as possible.”
In the next scene, we see the “stupid” version of Ross standing in front of the “bean computer”, grazing his fingers over the keyboard buttons like one of them can magically turn on the bean-fueled unit.
It didn’t take too long before a man in a blue shirt marched up to their house and rang the doorbell.
Ross stayed true to his role and called out in a lazy “Who is it?” The repairman promptly introduced himself as the repairman that his brother called to fix his PC.
Ross started to get into the bottom of the problem, explaining that it was working earlier until the repairman interrupted him to ask if it was the “blue screen”. Not wanting to say that it was the “black beans”, Ross insisted that he doesn’t really know what caused his problem.
After an exchange of who called who and which problem might have caused what, the repairman finally asks for the unit to be turned on.
The first part is easy. It’s just about pushing the power button. No big deal. So while they’re waiting for the PC to boot up, if it ever will, the repairman begins to explain that it might be about how Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7. To which Ross replies:
“I don’t usually have more than 3 windows up at a time so that shouldn’t be an issue.”
The confused repairman tried to get around Ross’s claims, no matter how inane they sounded until he realizes that the PC was taking longer to boot than expected.
The repairman now bets that it might be the power supply unit, which is logical, considering that the PC was not turning on at all.
Finally, Ross excuses himself, saying that he’s going to call his uncle to tell him what was going on. At this moment, the repairman finally opens the unit and gets a very nasty surprise.
He quickly calls Ross back to show him his discovery:
“I’m gonna open it up and show you something I’ve never seen before in my life.”
To which Ross only answers “What?” like the beans were supposed to be inside the PC. You know, maybe to help it stay cool.
Ross continues to duke out his “stupidity” onto the repairman and started making remarks as to whether or not the beans should be in the PC or not. Or if the beans are actually part of the “motherboards”.
At this point, the repairman takes out his phone to show Ross what a normal computer looks like, and continues to insist that he has never seen anything like this in his entire life.
Dumbfounded and at the brink of giving up, the repairman shares his verdict: Ross would have to buy a new one because his PC decided to crash a local Texmex restaurant.
You can watch the whole hilarious encounter on the video below and see how Ross and the repairman arrived at their conclusions.
SHARE this with your family and friends and tell them that beans won’t make computers faster.
