The Longest Line: iMovie Of Massive Line Waiting For Ginza Apple Store

The Longest Line: iMovie Of Massive Line Waiting For Ginza Apple Store

by , 3:15 PM EST, December 5th, 2003

Once we again, we owe our friends at Macworld UK (specifically Jonny Evans) thanks for pointing this out: .Mac user masanorif has posted a fantastic movie of the line to get into Apple's new Ginza Apple Store on opening day.

The movie walks you from the store's doors to the end of the line, which was marked in typical Japanese fashion by a uniform-wearing person holding a sign that says "End of Line," according to masanorif's captions. (As more people got in line, he'd move a bit farther back lest anyone have trouble figuring it out on their own.)

While we have seen many images and movies from Apple Store openings over the years, we've never seen anything of this magnitude. The line stretches down the block, down another block, across the street, and across yet another street in a stunning statement of how much interest there was in Apple first non-US store.

Visit masanorif's .Mac site to see the full movie.
