It would have to be a really big blender for a notepad (more like a cement mixer :-)

Not quite as polished, but reminds me of this Digikey video a while back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxnLn79RO2E

I can't see these at work, but I want to know if it blends (the notorious blender test).

I agree -- one's first reaction is "this is a silly waste of time" but the fact that we are still talking about it would indicate otherwise

I'm not really a "car man" -- but I would love to see those tests -- are they on YouTube, do you think?

We could try that test ourselves (can you loan me your notepad?)

IMO. these ads are more persuasive than a portraying the products in only good light. Recent psychological studies shows that if you push too much, people tend to not believe you. http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-01-28/national/36587180_1_extroverts-introverts-extroversion So the people who made these ads have done their homework

You may be familar with the BBC TV programme, Top Gear (it is syndicate in dozens of countries, I understand). They did similar tests on a Toyota pickup. I can't remember them all, but I remember the penultimate test: leaving it on the beach at low tide and letting the tide come in. I also remember the last test: leaving it on the roof of a tall bulding and blowing up the building. There are two important differences, however: i) all the tests were done on the same vehicle ii) (after some minor tinkering) the Toyota pickup passed all the tests!

Perhaps with the electrical discharge test they could have tied it to a kite during a thunderstorm?
