Hilarious prank has Apple Genius drop boxes with iPhone 5 while fans are waiting in line (video)

0. phoneArena 26 Sep 2012, 09:33 posted on

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.

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.

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.

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 thought it was already half-broken when delivered. Read: Poor maps, letter-boxing, light leakage, scratches and who knows what else?

Just like the GS3 is prone to cracking at the bezel and has received 3 updates so far (the third to prevent unintentional remote wiping)

Not a fan of Samsung, so your post is pointless. On a side note, the security blunder was massive.

Let's be fair guys....if ANYONE is waiting for a phone, doesn't matter what make or model...like GS3 or iPhone 5...YOU KNOW, you would freak out...I would!

Why the f@#$ would you wait in line for a freaking phone???!!!! Your life doesn't depend on it!!! Only losers spend (precious) time waiting on a freaking line for a freaking rectangular calculator!!!

P.S. Excuse my tone, but fanboyism (from all sides) has finally gotten to my nerves! The video was awesome, by the way, and examplery of the idiocy in some sheep-people!

I wouldn't, mainly because I wouldn't wait in line like that for any phone, least of all one I could get delivered to my front door.

I agree with this.. I also agree with those that say I wouldnt be waiting in line for a phone.

I dont for it for video games, CD's, etc I might do it for concert tickets.

Why do you people assume someone is racist over some comment online, without even knowing them? As if you knew me your entire life so you're judging me?

Get outta here you clowns. Yes I am racist against clowns.
