Apple's new iPhone 5 generated a lot of attention today, as the usual crowds lined up for hours ahead of the new smartphone's launch.

Dutch website iPhone5.nl decided to have a little bit of fun with all the iPhone madness, and engineered a very simple prank: glue an iPhone 5 to the ground in a public square in Amsterdam, and film how people react. Unsurprisingly, the results are pretty entertaining:

I can't help but feel a little bad for the break-dancer working so hard to entertain the crowds, only to have a glued-down iPhone distract from his act.

To break the hearts of Apple fans even more, the website says this was the first iPhone 5 in the Netherlands. Ouch.
