Heckling iPhone Fans

The Apple crowd is a pretty loyal lot. These are the folks that line up whenever there's a hot new Mac, iPhone or Steve Jobs sighting.

One TV reporter, though, mistook this crowd for the Dungeons & Dragons-type folks that camp out waiting for the next PlayStation or Nintendo. This TV reporter thought Apple fans were pimple-faced losers with no social skills -- and no guts.

But when he asked, on camera, a bunch of folks standing in line for the new iPhone if they had ever kissed a girl, he got completely owned by one dude. This guy coolly explained how uncool it was to assume that iPhone fans were a bunch of dweebs. After this got posted on YouTube, I'm sure this guy has plenty of interested gals.
