People Are Getting Weird And Crazy Over The New iPhone

These people know they could've pre-ordered the new iPhone online, right?

About a week and a half after announcing two new iPhones -- the new, bigger iPhone 6 and even biggerer iPhone 6 Plus -- Apple officially began selling its new handsets in stores on Friday morning.

That means only one thing: The hundreds of people who've waited in line for days since the iPhone announcement finally had the fleeting moment of joy that comes with the purchase of any new Apple product.

Here's what iDay looked like around the world.

The lines got long at Apple Stores.

Here was the scene in Singapore this morning.

We mean really looong.

Here what it looked like outside the Berlin store.

Some Apple fans literally camped out.

Like these guys in London.

Sometimes, things got weird.

At least in Tokyo. Here's someone wearing a Steve Jobs mask, holding an apple (the fruit).

At least there was free coffee in Sydney.

Not to be outdone, New York had free chicken.

A team of KFC employees, including one dressed as Colonel Sanders, visited the Apple Store line in New York in honor of the Kentucky Fried Chicken founder's 124th birthday this month.

All that chicken may have something to do with this.

(We're glad no one took a picture of this one.)

We guess things are bound to happen when that many people come together. The line for Apple's flagship store in New York stretched 12 blocks along Central Park, according to Business Insider.

But the wait paid off once Apple fans got their new phones.
