Apple News: A man who proudly held his iPhone 5 in the air on Friday has spent the weekend plagued by an unexpected realisation of emptiness.

The man – who was one of the first people in the UK to get the iPhone 5 and had been queuing outside the Apple store in London since Tuesday – held the phone triumphantly in air, only to realise how empty his life was just seconds later.

It’s reported that the hollow feelings he experienced meant that he hasn’t even unboxed his new phone yet, as he’s convinced it will only make his feelings of emptiness even more intense.

“I’ve been thinking about the iPhone 5 non-stop since it was announced,” said Martin Mellow, 32. “When I first got it I felt so proud – I held the box in the air and other people in the queue started applauding me.”

“As I stood there, holding this lump of plastic and metal, hearing the applause, I suddenly realised how empty my life was. Hopefully Apple will announce iPhone 6 in the next few months, so I can find something to live for again.”

    It looks a great phone but is obviously out of most people’s price range which gives it an immediate snob value. The Apple Store employees are like some futuristic nightmare. The people aren’t hollow the principal it’s sold on is. The Poke hit the nail on the head with this spoof.
