Gruber the Booger:
So Gruber did get a review unit?

6:22 "do you have to send that back?"

"I do"

8 people in line? 3 of which are kids. 5 are from some company pushing a developer space (the 3 kids included).

Dude in the red shirt knows Gruber is a douche, watch his body language.

Damn these Snapchatting millennials with their "content". If you can't beat 'em, embarrass yourself in a doomed and creepy attempt at joining 'em.

Obviously not going to watch this. It's like someone saying "I'm pretty sure I've trodden in something: would you like to look at it?"

"Oh, what? You noticed this? That I'm holding the very thing you're in line to purchase? I didn't think you'd notice. But yes, now that you mention it, this IS the new iPhone X. How did I get one you ask? Well, I write a little Apple blog, you've probably never heard of it, it's called DARING FIREBALL?? So Apple sends me review units for free. It's really not a big deal."

"Did you have it for a whole week, or just one day like a chump?"

YouTuberCulosis:
Nearly 30,000 views in two days, with 388 "likes" to 10 "dislikes". Maybe Gruber IS a YouTuber now.

\>when people stop visiting your shitty blog because you never write so you have to get a side gig as an apple promoter outside the store.

@youtuberculosis

YouTuberCulosis:
It's coming up on 40,000 views today. (437 likes to 13 dislikes). How many of those views are from Gruber himself, sitting in a dark room, running his own video on repeat, 24/7?

pronce:
has anyone else fapped to this video in a darkened room?

apart from grubes?

Q*Bert:
Does Gruber also go troll the lines for movies? "Oh yeah, it's hard being a movie reviewer with pre-screening access. You'll really hate it when she dies at the end, but it'll only bother you for a few days."

"I got a special screening. Bond survives this one! And gets to make out with some girls!"

"They had questions. So I interviewed them."

Doesn't this mean that he really interviewed himself? How perfect.

It's good to see Gruber get out of his stuffy condo once in a while to hang with normal average people.
