Fans around the world queued for days, some even weeks to get their hands on the new iPhone. On launch day, tales of woe from queuers who missed out began to emerge. Some people in Sydney and elsewhere were arrested or removed from the line for causing trouble, but around the world the trouble started long before the doors opened. This short film shows the dark side of iPhone queues, especially in New York.
Casey Neistat made this great short film about the people queueing in different stores around New York City, and found that most people were all paying cash, buying for others and getting into altercations with the cops and each other.
It’s actually a pretty sad experience these days.
