This must have broken some sort of world record. It's a vid showing the line up outside of the first Apple retail store in Tokyo.


Make sure you watch the whole thing to grasp just how long the line is.

Wonder why it took so long for Apple to get a store in Tokyo?

That lineup is crazy! Must have been a giveaway of some sort for so many people to show up.

Propaganda. There aren't even that many Apple customers in the whole world.

12-12-2003, 01:05 AM
i bet they are giving away free things or somethin.

12-12-2003, 01:06 AM
It was as if the store was only open for 1 day

12-12-2003, 01:07 AM
That wasn't the line up to go in the store and buy stuff, it was the lineup for customer service where people would bring back their macs and ipods to get refunds or warranty work. In some cases people were lining up to pick up new ipods because the battery died! :rofl:

I know, seriously though. Why wait outside in the what looked like the rain...when you could just sit inside and browse the Apple website instead? No lineups, no crowds and no crazy ass customer who wants the very last ipod.

I'll never be able to understand those Japs. Well, no more browsing the net, gotta study for my geophysics exam tomrrow!

Most of the people looked like they wanted to check the store out and had nothing better to do :rofl:

Hmm...haven't seen a line up that long though...not even when I was in Japan...

12-12-2003, 09:54 AM
damn, lots peeps

12-12-2003, 10:16 AM
holy fawk.... I thought the line outside cowboys during stampede was bad.....

12-12-2003, 12:33 PM
Ok that was a waste of five minutes. Haven't these people ever heard of Mail Order?

Or you could have at least wait a week to get in... :dunno:

12-12-2003, 01:05 PM
I wonder how many people hopped in line just because it was such a big line-up!?

12-12-2003, 01:07 PM
for that many people to be in line they have to be giving something away:dunno:

12-12-2003, 01:33 PM
"psst, did you hear they were giving a free blow job at the new apple store?"

12-12-2003, 04:31 PM

Maybe they should have opened 1 more store at the same time... or at least bought a store that would allow more than 2 people in at once.

bullshit thats propaganda its probably some promo vid! i dont think that japanese people are that stupid to stand in line for like 6 city blocks just to buy a MAC...

12-17-2003, 05:58 PM
