Despite Its Name, MacGyver Would Never Use This Watch

By Luke Anderson

There are a lot of people that have been an inspiration throughout the course of my life, one of which is MacGyver. Thanks to this incredible hero, I can get myself out of almost any sticky situation using only a paperclip, some thread, three rubber bands and a stick of gum. Naturally I carry each of these items on my person at all times, because you never know when you’ll need them.

After pouring over hundreds of hours of old episodes, I’ve yet to find a single reference to the mullet-sporting hero ever needing a gig of music located in his watch. Surely I’ve missed something, because Skullcandy is offering a watch that does exactly that, and are calling it MacGyver. I really don’t understand the reference.

What gets me is that they are selling this for $199.95. MacGyver would never pay for something like this. He could build one using an ordinary watch, two bottle caps, seven nose hairs and a pack of Twizzlers.
