How to make an Apple Pencil YouTube video comments have us in stitches

YouTube is full of inspirational how-to videos, many of which are a brilliant resource for artists and designers. Others can be a little, well, questionable. So when we first saw this How to make an Apple Pencil video, we couldn't resist finding out which camp the tutorial would fall into. 

The video, by Hannah Pengilly aka PengoArt, which has already racked up an impressive 1.7 million views, shows the artist grab a standard-looking ballpoint pen, remove the ink and spring, cut a cotton bud in half and insert it in the end of the pen nib, poke some aluminium foil in the body of the pen case and reattach the nib. The video then switches to her using the new 'device' to draw on an iPad.
