There's nothing much funnier than messing with iPhone fans waiting on long lines to get the new iPhone 5. A group from AwesomenessTV decided to take advantage of this and pull a prank on several people standing outside of Apple stores and waiting to get their hands on the new phone. The hearts of iPhone fans stop as they watch what they believe are boxes of iPhones come crashing to the ground and shattering what's inside.
Prankster Alex Goyette dressed up like an Apple employee in the blue T-shirt uniform and name tag. He then filled boxes with breakables and went to various Apple stores to mess with people that may have been waiting hours to days for the new iPhone 5.
Goyette walks in front of the stores, acting as if he's delivering the new shipment of iPhones and pumps up the crowd by asking them if they know what's inside the boxes. The crowd whistles and cheers and Goyette suddenly loses his control of the boxes and they come crashing down to the ground right in front of the onlookers. Whatever is inside the boxes causes a shattering sound, making it seem like the iPhone break inside the boxes.
The reactions of the iPhone fans is what makes the prank priceless. Some are left with their mouths hung open, gasps can be heard, and some are left asking "Seriously?"
Goyette quickly explains that since the iPhone contain tough Gorilla Glass, the phones are likely fine, but the sound of broken glass doesn't seem to convince the fans.
He then goes to other Apple stores and repeats the prank with a similar response from onlookers.
This isn't the only joke that pranksters have played on iPhone 5 fans. A group in Amsterdam recorded a prank in which they super glued an iPhone 5 to the pavement and watched as passerby's stopped to try to pick up the phone with no success.
The iPhone 5 is already sold out as Apple sold over five million iPhone 5's since its September 21 release.
"Demand for iPhone 5 has been incredible and we are working hard to get an iPhone 5 into the hands of every customer who wants one as quickly as possible," said Apple CEO Tim Cook according to the Daily Mail. "While we have sold out of our initial supply, stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date."
"We appreciate everyone's patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone," Cook continued.
