The guys over at Awesomness TV picked on the iPhone 5 buzz immediately, and created a sophisticated prank for all those that were waiting in line to get it. As you can guess, hilarity ensues, when one of the pranksters, dressed up as a Genius Bar staffer, chats casually with the Apple queue, then drops the alleged boxes full of iPhone 5 units in front of their eyes...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the iPhone 5 doesn't use Gorilla Glass.

Average person standing in line probably has no clue what type of glass it has, nor cares.

Of course not, so long as the Apple logo is on it, or could be a slab of rock for all they care.

The issue is not whether it's GG or some other high strength Corning product. Even with GG, the iconic design exposes the edges of the glass panel. This is THE weakness that brings even GG to its knees.

The iPhone 5 edges are not exposed. Hence the reason it does so well in drop tests. Btw, the video is not real, its a prank.

Haha, It's so sad and hilarious at the same time, hilarious because those idiots fell for it and sad because, well, idiots are people too.

It's not politically correct to make fun of the mentally handicapped. And anyone who queues up for days for a device that they can have shipped to their door...

But to get the iToy shipped to your front door, you have to wait up until midnight Pacific time on the appointed day and struggle with overloaded order placement servers. It would seem to be much more convenient to wait in line on opening day.

I wish that actually happened with real iPhone 5s and they actually broke...? Just me? Yeah, didn't think so.
