Last week, Apple opened up pre-ordering for the iPhone 4. It was a mess, with AT&T’s eligibility checker slowing to a crawl, and people trying for hours to get their pre-order in. After trying to get an order in a few times, I gave up and tweeted this:
Fuck it, I’m buying a BlackBer-hahaha. Whee! I couldn’t even get through that with a straight face.
What I originally planned to say was pithier:
Fuck it, I’m buying a BlackBerry.
My concern was that people wouldn’t get it. Discussing this concern with a friend, we came up with a brief scene entitled ‘Crowd Reaction’, which I’ve acted out. Enjoy!
