You've probably heard about the fallout surrounding Samsung's latest iteration of its classy Note phablets, or maybe not if you were unlucky enough to have the device next to your ear at a particular time. But yeah, the Note 7 has been causing a major fuss as numbers of them have been exploding in customers' hands!

When plugged in to charge, a number of Note 7s were reported to overheat and then explode. Whether down to faulty cables or the devices' lithium-ion batteries, this is a serious issue in a society as tech hungry as today's.

One of the devices managed to injure a child, airlines are attempting to stop people from bringing them on onboard, and the technology giant's handling of the whole debacle has been... a total debacle! But, there is one way of making a serious situation somewhat light-hearted, and that's by playing GTA V.

Modder HitmanNiko has crafted a very gallows humor tinted mod that turns all of the sticky bombs found in Los Santos into Samsung's beleaguered device, creating utter madness as seen in this video:

There's no getting past GTA V's modding community and its explosive sense of humor. The thing that freaks me out the most about the whole situation is... what if you were charging your phone whilst using a mobile VR device? Yeah... not so cool.

What do you think?

Will you be buying Samsung in the future? Also, if you like the looks of the mod, get over to HitmanNiko's 5mods page for more tinkers.
