One Of The First People To Buy An iPhone 6 Dropped It On TV

Australian Jack Cooksey was the first person in Perth to get a new iPhone, making him one of the first people in the world to get a new iPhone. So he was interviewed on TV. And it all went wrong.

Struggling with the lid of the box, and no doubt nervous at being the subject of a TV interview just for purchasing a phone, Jack applied a little too much force and saw his brand new iPhone 6 go flying out of the box and onto the concrete. The crowd's reaction says it all.

Note also perhaps the most Australian reporter I have ever seen, who even (I'm 98 per cent sure it's her) manages to blurt out "shit!" live on camera as the phone hits the street.

Jack says the phone, amazingly, was "fine". I'm betting his next stop was somewhere that sold big, rubber cases though.

    Cant believe people still do this. Wow thats the power of marketing versus those personalities that like to follow.

      Do what, line up for things when they first come out?
      Games, films, phones, computers, theme parks, concert/sport tickets, sales, toys, consoles....everyone has at one point and everyone follows multiple things.

    Waiting for the Nexus 6 (Nexus X?) to come out, wonder if it will get news coverage

    poor bugger... obviously gets a bit shaky when nervous and put on the spot :/

    No one has ever interviewed me when I've bought a phone. This thing must solve world hunger or something.

    So..... this is how news reporters sound like in Perth?
