Although the topics of his videos have bounced around over the years ranging from the self-reflective (a tribute to his wife) to undercover reporting (a protest against NYC bike lane laws), some of the most memorable of Neistat’s videos have involved some form or another the hacking of hardware at such an extreme level that some hardcore fanboys would likely require a box of tissues nearby to wipe away tears while watching – such as his DIY Gold Apple Watch conversion tutorial that was released hours after the Apple Watch itself:
