Guy busted smuggling dozens of iPhones into Shenzhen (video)

Posted: 03/5/2012 5:18 pm

If there was an award for being able to walk normally with pounds and pounds of electronic devices attached to your body, this guy would be a shoe-in to win.

A video has surfaced showing a man crossing the border from Hong Kong to Shenzhen with dozens (some say hundreds, but we can’t say for sure) of iPhones strapped to his body.  We also aren’t sure exactly which border crossing this is, but it looks like Lo Wu.

The video shows the man being pulled aside and iPhones removed from his body.

Mainland Chinese stocking up on iDevices in Hong Kong is not a new phenomenon, of course, but rarely do we get such vivid video evidence.  With the iPad 3 slated to be unveiled Thursday morning China time, customs agents will likely have a lot more of these shenanigans to put up with in the days and weeks ahead.
