Here's The Weird Apocalypse Video From Apple's WWDC Conference

A server blowout ruins humanity. Too soon, Apple, too soon.

Here's the opening video from Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2017:

When an engineer accidentally unplugs servers at Apple, all apps disappear and the world becomes a Cormac McCarthy-esque post-apocalyptic nightmare. Or something.

However, some people felt the whole "apocalypse" thing was a little...too close to reality.

Don't joke about the apocalypse right now, Apple. #wwdc17

OK, we're basically afraid of the apocalypse every day as it is. Thanks a lot Apple. #wwdc2017

This #WWDC17 opening video is a little too true for 2017.

This intro video gag where Apple deletes the app store is too plausible and they shouldn't joke about it
