iPhone 5 Prank In Amsterdam Goes Viral As Hopefuls Try To Snatch Superglued Phone (VIDEO)

Days before the iPhone 5's release in the Netherlands, two jokesters in Amsterdam decided to have a little fun with a clever iPhone 5 prank that played on Apple fans' emotions.

Two pranksters from website superglued an iPhone 5 facedown onto a street in the middle of Leidseplein, a busy square in the center of Amsterdam, Yahoo! News reports. They positioned a hidden camera to capture the reactions, and needless to say, the results were hilarious.

Passersby who fell for the iPhone 5 prank attempted to snatch the device off the ground in a variety of ways. Some tried to pull at the phone before realizing it was glued to the street; others attempted to inconspicuously grab the phone without anyone seeing; and a few even got aggressive and began kicking and stomping on the device. Of course, others played along and took photos with the superglued phone.

The prank was not complete without a bit of self-promotion, however. The folks over at wrote on the sidewalk in chalk "order @"

As of Tuesday morning, the iPhone 5 prank had more than 1.2 million views on YouTube.
