Bad ideas: lady caught smuggling iPhones into China inside beer bottles
posted by Charlene S. / Apr 23, 2012, 10:13 AM
An older lady was offered a sum of money to be the mule for 216 iPhones crossing into Shenzen, China. Unfortunately for her, the plan wasn’t exactly the best. The lot, which was comprised of both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S models, was inserted into empty beer bottles that had been cut open, and then resealed with tape. As you can see in the video, they were bundled in groups of three, wrapped in a black bag, and put into dark bottles.
While this team of smugglers gets an A+ for ingenuity, it doesn’t seem like the best idea considering alcohol is one of those things that usually catches customs’ eye, especially 72+ bottles of beer.

Wow I completely forgot how small iPhones are, I mean they were putting 3 iPhones in 1 bottle. They shouldn't have used tape, they should have used some kind of glue to keep the bottles from looking suspicious at the middle of the bottle.
