    Maybe his "Sent from my iPhone" button was broken. :(

    "I'm sorry sir, but company policy says we have to try to repair it 3 times - you'll have it back in another 2 weeks."

    Anyone know what the craic with that video is? Is there some sort of video stabilisation on it? I see more and more phone videos with that kind of swaying action in them, nothing seems to be jerky anymore!

    Youtube gives you the option to let it "fix" it for you and removes the shakyness

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn...

    So yeah, I'm gonna go with that

    Maybe he saw one of those cynical cúntish T-mobile flashmob ads?

    He seemed unbelievably calm towards the end and even seemed to be having the craic with the polis. Attracted some crowd though! :eek:

    There's no such thing as bad advertising.

    These shops generally have about 4 staff in them if not more at any one time, im surprised they let it get to that level it looks like he had knocked over the desks and everything.

    He looked nothing more than an outraged middle aged gentlemen.

    His insurance claim must of been rejected.

    When did will.i.am start working for T-Mobile? :p

    On a serious note, does anyone else think the calm(ish), calculated way he slowly disassembled the place was worrying, from a mental state point-of-view. Usually people flip for a minute and then calm down?

    Yeah, he slowed down certainly and then picked up the fire extinguisher and happily unloaded about a third of the bottle.
    Had to laugh at one of the kids outside "He's grabbing a fire extinguisher but there aint no fire!"

    I thought he was crying at the end. At 3.19 he looks like he has a tear running down his cheek but he could have been just sweating either.

    They probably used the good old fashioned "water damage" excuse on him.

    "i'll give you water damage" was his response I imagine

    Anyone else think this might have been some sort of Guerilla marketing? Crazyman draws massive crowd to T mobile shop, 500k youtube views in 2 days and lots of people talking about it online.

    Love the end...."Out of the way".

    Those flash mobs weren't working out for them.
