Video to Watch: Granny Trashes the Sprint Store


I see many short clips on the youtube and some of them are saved in my favorites section.  Mostly clips of ghosts, UFOs and other unlikely crap that may exist and this qualifies as the best evidence available to the public.  Some tapes are faked to give the viewer a good scare and I don't save them.  But this is a good one.  Watch the video in the link.  The store employees are afraid of the old lady like an alien spaceship just landed and the alien is exiting into their store.  Not exactly an intellectual subject but interesting to view.

picture-14Judging from the reaction on the web, people aren’t having too hard of a time getting the new Palm Pre at Sprint stores across the country. But last night, one woman was apparently so concerned that she wouldn’t be able to get one that she sped her car to a Sprint store — wait, let me rephrase that — she sped her car into a Sprint store.

Check out the video embedded below from NBC Chicago. It’s pretty incredible. Joking aside, I highly doubt the elderly woman behind the wheel actually wanted a Pre and more importantly, she was fine aside from a few bruises. But as you can see, the store didn’t fare so well. And it was probably the worst time something like that could have happened given the Pre launch today.

The store apparently said it would still be ready for the 8 AM launch. Anyone in Chicago know if they made it? Perhaps having absolutely no storefront helped with the crowd flow. Let’s just hope they cleaned up the broken glass and picked up the poor fallen giant Pre display.
