There were some pretty interesting developments around the time when people were waiting to get their hands on the iPhone 6 as soon as the doors to their retailers opened. Filmmaker Casey Neistat says that getting an iPhone back in 2009 used to be so much more fun as compared to today. Even the lines back then used to be simpler and people reacted more positively and with more excitement. But this has drastically changed over the past few years and now this whole phenomenon is like what we have seen in viral videos like "Bike Lanes," "Make It Count," and "The Dark Side of the iPhone 5S Lines.”

Quite similar to what has happened on these footages, Neistat's latest video documents this past Friday's iPhone lines. The video comes as "iPhone 6 Lines and the Chinese Mafia" and this time it brings an even darker side of the phone and is more opinionated than Neistat's last attempt. It is being supposed that "the Chinese Mafia" is responsible for the elderly line-sitters sleeping in garbage bags across in front of Apple Stores across New York City. Yes you read that right. There were people sleeping in garbage bags on the streets as they waited for the stores to open their doors.

The saddest part comes at the point where the store actually happens and people look like robots going into the stores as Apple employees clap in the background and what is even stranger is the view of people getting out of the stores with their iPhone, for which they wait 12 hours in line, and trading it for cash with profits. The video is extremely helpful in bringing to us a different side of the story where there are line sitters, police brutality and even some rumors suggesting that five million new iPhones are reportedly about to be smuggled into China.
