The Israeli entertainer claims that the recent spate of bending iPhones could be down to psychic energy.
Geller is no stranger to bending objects having made a career out of his alleged ability to bend spoons with the power of his mind.
Now the Israeli has waded in to Apple's 'bendgate' controversy in which buyers of the new iPhone 6 have been reporting that their brand new phone has seemingly bent in their pocket.
Geller maintains that the most likely explanation is that excitement for the product has had a physical effect on the handsets.
"Either the phone is so seriously thin and flimsy that it is bendable with mere physical force, which I cannot believe given the extensive tests Apple would have done," he said. "Or - and this is far more plausible - somehow the energy and excitement of the 10 million people who purchased iPhones has awakened their mind powers and caused the phones to bend."
Despite the dubious nature of his claim Geller is so adament that he is right that he has even offered to demonstrate for Apple the phone being bent by nothing more than the power of his mind.
"I urge Apple to hire me to explain to the world that this is not the company's fault at all," he said.
