Hilarity ensues

A DUTCH GROUP of pranksters has had a laugh at the expense of visitors to Amsterdam by superglueing an Iphone 5 to the sidewalk and watching as people tried to pick it up.

The people behind the scam, a website called, somehow managed to get their hands on the first Iphone 5 in the country.

Rather than walk around showing it off they decided to superglue it to the streetside in a busy part of Amsterdam and watch as stupid people presumed to think that they might be able to pick it up.

The glue was so strong, and the people so weak, that no one was able to pick up the handset, despite their best efforts.

Laugh then, as someone tries to pick it up with their hand. Gasp as someone else tries to kick it, and wince when someone jumps up and down on a mobile phone that cost £500.

Some people, probably ex-INQUIRER journalists, walk right by it, despite having seen it, while our favourite scene comes when one man, whom we can only describe as being "epicly drunk", takes a big swing at it with his foot and misses. µ
