Samsung has been embroiled in its scandal of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones blowing up, and now the story gets worse with the South Korean giant getting pissed after someone used a Note 7 in a mod for Grand Theft Auto V, which doubled Samsung's troubled smartphone as a bomb.

The video has been taken down from YouTube, with Samsung Electronics America, Inc. slapping it with a copyright claim - with Kotaku adding in the perfect comment: "Perhaps Samsung was trying to file more claims, but the device they were using exploded before they could complete the process"... oh snap.

YouTube channel Modded Games is behind the video, with user 'sdaddy345' saying: "Pretty bummed out that Samsung copyright take downed a video that I made 100%... No logo, image or even the word 'Samsung' was uttered/shown in the video. It was pretty much the same thing as this video, which is just a gta 5 player throwing the phone at cars and blowing them up".

Well, sorry sdaddy345 - but even the screenshot from the video shows that the phone being used as a bomb says "Samsung" at the top of it.
