Using a random number generator programmed to pick one particular random number for one particular end user who has a particular issue ;)
YugiSatan
Damn that was the most random user to have gotten chosen for free repairs if I've ever seen random.

True randomization going on over here!
Gameboygenius
I just want to remind everyone that sending the laptop to Louis would be *highly immoral* and *plain wrong.* It would be *a shame* if Apple's tool benefited 3rd party repair. If you're in a similar situation, *don't* contact [email protected] (that's two s's, two n's to make sure that the address that you don't contact him on is the right one.)
Seamon
"Those are nice diagnostic tools you got there... It would be a shame if someone made an image and sent it to someone else who could put them to good use."
Darkside1355
Let us know if he ever sends itt over to you guys, blink 5 times on the left eye to let us know.
Basher
Wow he must be a lucky customer to be picked for FREE REPAIRS! I hope he replies back to you, it's a GREAT DEAL!

Louis/Smeagol- sssssennnddd meee myyy PRRRRECIOUSSSSS!!!!! 😂
Alessandro Celoria
Guys remember: this is industrial espionage, it's really bad and it's illegal!

So, it is absolutely mandatory that, whenever you get hold of such a disk image like the OP of the reddit post claims to possibly have, you immediately destroy the file and don't, for example, upload it to anonfile.com.

Also, under no circumstance send that macbook to, let's say, 186 1st Avenue NYC, just so you know.

Almost as random as Paul's repair queue
I don't know my name
Apple: a *very small percentage* of our overpriced machines are actually useful. We are issuing a *cautionary* return program for affected models.

Do NOT
THIS IS BRITAIN’S CHANCE TO CRACK THE ENIGMA

Looks like Apple is finally starting to do what Microsoft has been doing. Too bad it is only for one chosen individual.
Alexander Herberstein
Was wondering when Louis was going to hear about this xD
Travis Stamper
This would only affect a "small percentage" of users that needed repair :-D Don't delay, let's get this today!!!
PK Rockin’
Totally unrelated, I would just like a battery replacement for my iPod Classic. It’s finally dying on me, and it hurts to see my little nostalgia machine go out on me like this.

"Ooops, i accidentally spilled some liquids on it. It looks like i cannot repair it anymore, it is totally ruined. Here's a new one for you. I deeply apologize for the inconvienience"

Apple: oh no.
Everyone else: oh... Yyyes!
codeman017
Call it fate or crazy "luck" this is damn near perfect timing inline with the perspective store coming in the next year, let's see if the unfixable "dead" Mac books will become :)
AnalogX64
I hope BickNLinko sends those images to Louis so that he can dispose of them safely, wink...wink...nudge...nudge.. ;)
TheCod3r Tutorials
The question we all want to know is, has he replied to you yet :D
Jay'Von Ro
The straight lust for that cd image.

Impressive my good sir.
Ashton Snapp
“no reason whatsoever”
Electrowave
I hear Louis is good at removing impossible to remove labels. Maybe he has an impossible to remove label that needs a professional removal ;-)
andyrockism
AppleInsider talked about this and talked about you.
Max Miles
In the immortal words of the great Admiral Akbar "" IT'S A TRAP !! "" :) lol
Pierre C.
That's good! Apple doesn't seem to care too much that their diagnostic software falls into the -wrong- right hands. ;-)
Manolis Vlachakis
Apple Genius comment on chat...
"What is a diagnostic program...? We automatically reply everything works fine..."
Adam Messmann
I’m legit curious if he’ll get the diag tools
Wong Yang
I really hope the individual contacts you. Offer to pay for his shipping too. Lol
KrotowX
Seems an Apple honeypot for Louis to find out are he will respond to this news. A next level of trolling.
Bass Stuff
Hello, and welcome to Louis’s House of MacBook Fleshlight Installation.
flyingfajitas
What an amazing lottery that absolutely random person has won.
Arvid Nilsson
And don't send the software to paul daniels, so he can't integrate this software flexboardview. Cause that would never be helpfull for anyone
Myronaz
Something tells me that the diagnostic software has traps programmed in to prevent something like this. Maybe they won't work as soon as they are used on another machine, who knows.

Or... Maybe they will! It's worth a shot, I'd love to see where this will go.
Relflow
Well would you look at that.
You're about to be given the keys to a mansion of a lifetime.
It's free real-estate!
Daniel Eddy
"offer not valid in hawaii or alaska" perfect comment right there.
jesseb0rn
I hope that he imaged the drive and sent it in to you, did he?
WayStedYou
All this is lacking is Louis saying random over and over
Apriarcy
That offer is about as random as Paul's repair queue.
computersales
Some say the apple diagnostics have one of the best random generators.
M M
Don't delay and I offer you a brand new 2019 mac book pro today!
dxm a
random?!?! can i send in my 2012 hp envy for the free random upgrade to 2019 junk with no cooling?? theres no problem with it but old, but free upgrade to no cooling sounds hottt
SciFi Factory
Hm, I wouldn't be suprise if the software needed some sort of authentication to work....
The Sam HP
The only time I wish I owned a mac now.
Tekedi
This is like giving plankton the secret krabby Patty formular!

Secrets secrets
Are no fun. secrets secrets hurt someone

I would love to have a free Apple repair but I have never bought one since Louis told me not to.
d_o_m_i_f_i
was surprised when I heard german singing
Shu
But you monetized this video.. so the repair and upgrades pay for themselves from this videos ad revenue. I see what you did
nem tudom
Louis, you madman, what are you planning?! Are you planning something sinister and spooooky?

Good. I love it.
SparkplugEsquire
I remember seeing this in the wild, thinking you'd kill for it, then I saw the top comment..... Hahaha
Dustquake
Random chance works in ways that appear funny and non random.
// Kuiper //
Okay, so I may be drunk, but can we call Louis MacDaddy now?
blaze G g
Such a lucky guy, that MacBook is probably junk. Perhaps a swap would be in order?
AniVerse Channel
That music tho.....

Too perfect of a match
Kakureru D
would be a real shame if those images made it online
Method Man
I have heard that the diagnostic tools won‘t work outside of the Apple research lab. They are useless without a special dongle and a special connection to the internal network via ethernet connection.
AmazinChannel
Louis have such a big heart!
SigX
Me: umm so i have this headache
Doc: ah ok you need a new soul
Motu2804
Never laughed so hard with one of your short videos. Thank you. The montage just made it epic.
Daniel Griswold
Apple chose the individual at random.
toxicvoid13
I count myself lucky that I dont own any apple products 🤣
Blasharga
Try ONE SMALL TRICK, for free Apple repair. Apple hates it.
Tom Peters
Random. Just Random. Just ask Paul. Pure Randomness.
Forbidden303
You have been picked by the Rossmann random number generator for a one-time all you can eat macbook service. Congratulations!
tetryl1
This is GOLD, I just hope that the guy who has the laptop doesn't go too greedy and tries to start some sort of bidding war for the image because there would probably be a couple of interested parties... including Apple. Those programs should be free to roam the internet, for everyone.
McQueenRLZ
Am I right that Louis doesn't have access to Apple official diagnostic tools? If so, very nice move to get one in hand :DD
midnightwolf
It sounds like... Wait no legitimate business would offer.... hey would you like a free ssd upgrade, I will clone your current drive to a new one.
Captain MufDyven
So what you're saying is if I send in a junk macbook you send me back something better ar we talking pc or chromebook that kind of upgrade lol.
Josh Russell
lol
On that topic (well, I guess it's always your topic), Jim Tanous from PCPer is looking for Mac repair (I think desktop?)
anusficker 5000
You do have a great taste in music, louis!
Re-Play Informática
I would completely shatter my screen just to get that fantastic free offer...
ConServ
Might as well stick it to Apple, whenever you get the chance. Great job!
Simple Tech
Heyo very cool idea my dude! I might do a similar trick! Gotta give a little to get a little in this economy!
Austin McNair
I bet it's a flexgate laptop or butterfly keyboard issue. It's only a matter of time.
Hat
Hey Louis, I've been bingeing many of your videos in the past month, and have now more knowledge on the general scammy stuff apple pulls and some insight on how to live life. I'm probably never going to do any work related to your field, but today I want to thank you.


I recently spilled water on my mouse, which costs about 110usd(a lot for a student okay), and luckily did not break my mouse while taking it apart as there was a wire of some sort that was attached between the top and bottom components.


I also noticed some screws where hidden under the stickers on the bottom of the mouse, so removing and replacing the stickers made it not the same :') . I had to tear through some plastic to get to some screws as well. But in the end it still generally feels the same so thats good. Guess inrepairability is everywhere huh
Damon Ellenton
This is super exciting! I hope he makes an image and sends it to you haha.
Velleity
Yeah so I got a stack of A1534’s with fried CPU’s that I’ve been using for parts, maybe if I sent a couple in then could you maybe fix them for free?
I won’t pay you, but can you do it for the exposure?
- it2w
if you can get it, you should totally do that 1mln party in front of the Apple store and offer free diagnostics (projecting it to a 70" TV - obviously)
Kakol
Don't delay, leak the image today!
Sean Smith
What if Apple were implementing the T2 chip on MacBooks and removing Lifeboat connectors only to stop people from being able to take an image of this super important software?
alediaz84
I think he should get free lifetime repairs!
Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky
He's the chosen one.
Show Stopper
Last night my daughter stepped on my MacBook Pro screen now it’s cracked can’t use it )=
Cyb3rs34l
You should of offered to by him a new mac pro for it as well as free lifetime repairs for it.
Funk Addict
Woa, that was so random!
Premier Romanov
WOW! What a lucky user. Picked entirely at random. Totally not for an image of the software, no no. Totally at random. Louis, you generous man you.
Tales From The Grotto
Pick me so I don't use it. Yes I know this isn't a competition... But, I'm not wrong.
Andy Gray
This just made day.
Matt B
Wow Pandora's Box in this guys lap. Would be interesting if a certain repairman could get that box and open it...🤭🤫
Trey Taylor
I don't have a mac book so would an upgrade be getting one ? Pick me because I save kittens
Mr Tentacles
