Eight Hours in Line for WHAT?

May 15, 2008

That’s right. People waited in line for eight hours or more to get a shirt. A green shirt. A green shirt with the Apple logo on it. A green shirt with an Apple logo on it and the location of the newest – and largest – Apple Store in the United States.

BUT, the shirt does not say BOSTON on it. It says Boylston Street. Can that mean that another Boston store is in the works?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Here are some photos of the box they handed me on the way through the door and the shirt that was within the gorgeous package.

This is the madness at the door where all the Apple folks are handing out boxes with T-shirts in them.

This is the insanity on the stairs in the front door when I arrived. Some of these people are NOT attractive, but they were enthusiastic.

That’s the box we were handed.

That’s the package open. Great design…so very cool.

Now a little more open.

The FRONT of the shirt. Just like the Green Monster at Fenway Park.

And the back. Notice the complete absence of a city. Here come more stores!!

More to come… OH. If you want to know when more genius like this is posted, sign up in the sidebar for email alerts.

By the way, it was worth the 2.5 hours I waited.
