Turns out you can't use a vibrator to cheat in Pokemon Go

Tom Nardone is a man who wears many hats. He's the guy behind the Detroit Mower Gang and he also runs a company called Vibrators.com that sells — you guessed it — vibrators! The kind of vibrators used for sex and masturbation! 

Here, in this detailed video Nardone posted on Facebook yesterday, he explains how you cannot, in fact, use a vibrator to cheat in Pokemon Go. Apparently, some vibrator and/or Pokemon Go users were spreading vicious rumors that a vibrator could be used to hatch eggs by tricking the phone into think you're on the move. 



In a very scientific experience, Nardone tapes three phones to three different types of vibrators, turns them on, and then checks on the status of eggs after an hour. In effect, none of the vibrators had made the phones think they had moved any real measurable distance. And the eggs didn't hatch.

So, while "Tom from Vibrators.com" would "love to find a reason to sell you a vibrator" this isn't it.

Sorry, guys. Watch the video below.
