This Is What Happens When You Accidentally Drop An iMac Down A Mall Escalator? [Video]

What would happen if you took a beautiful, brand new iMac and “accidentally” dropped it in front of a bunch of strangers? Would they weep with you, or would they just laugh on by while calling you a bumbling idiot?

One guy thought it’d be a great prank to walk around the mall with an iMac box, and drop it in front of crowds, just to see what the reaction would be. He didn’t just drop it, though. He flung it down escalators. Tossed it into the trunk of his car. And knocked it off the top of a roof, and then tried to take the iMac box back to the Apple Store.

Check out the video below to see people’s reactions when the most beautiful computer in the universe gets clumsily destroyed.

    You’d have to be pretty stupid to fall for this. I’m surprised at how many people did.

    Not really funny though. Even for a “prank” it’s too mean spirited and the guy is too aggressive.

  • Buster

    @MR_Bee I agree that it’s not terribly funny, but how is it mean spirited? it’s not being mean to anyone, just making the guy dropping it look dumb

  • Bob Klingenberg

    You can tell who the Mac owners are. They look traumatized. The two kids are about to cry. It’s like seeing your puppy killed.

    @MR_Bee I agree that it’s not terribly funny…

    Oh come on now, I thought it was astonishingly funny… at least the first few times anyway.

  • Bulldogger123

    I accidentally dropped it 27 times…lol!

  • Boris Terekidi

    This prank is from last week. And the box is empty.

  • Bob Forsberg

    Same guy from the “Occupy” disturbances…still nothing to do with his life.

    Do these boxes really contain iMacs?

    The people in this video are not iMac owners. If they were, they would know iMacs are very heavy and those boxes are obviously very light.

    They basically are. No way could he be holding anything but an empty box. Especially over his head.

  • joewaylo

    I dropped it 27 times. Sure. I believe that if I was a genius tech.
