New internet trend sees people using live rabbits as smartphone cases [Awww]


Live rabbit cases

Whether it was the Harlem Shake or Ice Bucket Challenge, the internet is often the source for all sorts of strange, cute, noble, or hilarious new viral trends. Still in its infancy, the latest internet trend sweeping across the globe is something a lot higher on the “adorable” scale. People are using live rabbits as smartphone cases. Before we go any further, let’s just all get it out of our system right now: Awwwwwwww!

It all started with the above tweet, then seems to have quickly spreading across Asian countries where their love for the cute and odd is commonplace. While the vast majority seem to be iPhone owners, you’ll find the occasional Xiaomi Mi Phone or Samsung device scattered throughout. Take it all in, folks. This is Pulitzer Prize winning journalism right here.

Seriously, though. Man up the f*ck up and tell us which bunny is your favorite (the Samsung rabbit doesn’t have eyes!). I’m gonna grab a beer. Goodnight.

  5. Those things have claws, you know…

    1. They go into a submissive state when they’re on their back like that, you know…

    2. Rabbits are almost afraid of everything. They are prey animals, they fear for their lives. When on their backs, they become kinda paralyzed and play dead. It’s kinda the moment before their predator mauls them.

      There’s a video of people giving a rabbit a bath in their sink, lying in it’s back. Everything thinks it’s cute, but that rabbit was panicking for it’s life. They can have heart attacks and die from fear. Rabbits aren’t supposed to even be bathed.

      1. Thanks for the info, very fascinating,
        Yet, they taste way better than they feel as a phone case ;)

  6. What happen to this world?

    1. Agreed. WTF? People using animals like this to say, “hey, look at me” – social media is so terrible and people are such attention hoes on it, they will use animals like this. Bummer.

      1. Omg YES WE KNOW.


        For God’s sake, can you say something different for once..?

      2. I preferred the Internet before all the “normal” people were on it.

  7. Haha, you would post this, Chris. Props for the hilarity- and cuteness-factor (to say nothing about the beer line). Kickass.

  8. [Awww]? [Awww]? Are you kidding me. This isn’t cool, it is not [Awww] and it is not neat. Using animals as props for attention to to get internet likes and nonsense like this, like people do with hedgehogs these days, disgusting.

    Shame on you for posting this and feeding into this stupidity of people.

    1. Got an issue? Here’s a tissue.

    2. Man, i can never catch the hedgehog running around my area….way too fast for me. :/

      1. Gotta go fast.

        1. I even found a pink colored hedgehog…figured I could lure the blue one in to snag him…but now I have twice the problem! >:O

    3. Wow. Xenophobic much?? Have you thought about maybe… Taking up a hobby? Something to do instead of venting out your frustrations due to your shorecomins of your own life out on the internet where no one cares?

  9. That is disturbing. Very disturbing.

  10. humanity is retarded….or just really really bored.

  11. While its cute to us imagine how terrifying it is to bunnies.

  12. Why do people insist on playing with food? Silly wabbit, kicks are for kids…you’re for supper.
