iPod going crazy with a cellphone

We can neither confirm nor deny firsthand the results of the video linked below (for one reason or another no one at Engadget seems to own or have access to a cellphone), but apparently certain amounts of radio interference emitted by cellphones can drive an iPod with video freaky crazy wild. We're not sure what makes the 5G iPod any less shielded from RFI than other iPods (or if other iPods have this problem as well), but apparently some users are confirming the issue — and if nothing else watching that iPod go on the fritz when that cellphone gets close might elicit a chuckle.
