This guy, on the other hand, actively attempts to prevent his car from being towed by trying to drive away. While it's off the ground. Which doesn't work.

Today's expensive phones require expensive cases and expensive insurance policies to protect them in case of damage. But a few years ago, simpler phones stood up to the punishment of being dropped and mishandled. 

The iconic Nokia 3310, which made its debut in 2000, was loved by many for being virtually indestructible. More than 136 million of the devices were sold over the years. In 2011, it became the subject of a series of memes based on its durability.
