The Apple Store Is Just Too Damn Nice

Apple Stores are the most profitable stores in the world. They make more money per square foot than any other retail stores in any category. Flagship stores, like the one on New York’s Fifth Avenue, have become tourist attractions.

In addition to printing money for Apple, the stores are known for being extremely nice to customers and letting them get away with stuff that a normal store would never allow. YouTube is filled with videos of people singing and dancing inside an Apple store and the employees don’t even bat an eye.

My good buddy, Mark Malkoff over at My Damn Channel, decided to do an Apple store challenge and test how far you can push an Apple store before they get pissed at you and kick your ass to curb. It turns out, you can get away with a lot!

      1. PPC Ian says:

        Yes indeed. Very interesting stuff. I agree the Apple Store is an amazing place.

        1. Kevin Kimes says:

          This was pretty hilarious.

          Now, where’s my iPhone 5? Or 4s, or whatever.

          1. You sold it last night to cover your bar bill my friend …. Lolllzz

          1. Kevin Kimes says:

            Their true brilliance is marketing. Apple is the shining superstar of brilliant marketing.

            Other companies will often fall flat, even with a great and innovative product. But, Apple makes millions by convincing everyone that their mouse wheels scroll backwards.

        2. Virtual Tour says:

          It’s like the magical kingdom in every state!

        3. drezebella says:

    2. Daily News Blog..if I’m not mistaken..was a kid dong some type of dance in the Apple stores also that got lots of news coverage?

      “Black Seo Guy “Signing Off”

      1. Virtual Tour says:

        Yup, that kid got like 20 million youtube views as well!

        1. Kevin Kimes says:

          Hmmm. Combine this post, and the “Go Viral” post, and you’ve got a recipe for super-viral content!

          Phase 1, video yourself doing something crazy and unique in an Apple Store.
          Phase 2.
          Phase 3, profit.

          (actually, phase 2 is GO VIRAL! Hopefully some of you laughed at the reference, though.)

          1. I am sure this will this kind of video will add more reputation to Apple store.

            Simply awesome.

  2. Wow nice and interesting video.
    Great work done by Mark Malkoff ..

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      Yeah I totally agree with you.

        1. PPC Ian says:

          I agree too. I bought my iPad, iPhone, and MacBook at the Apple Store. Great place, very helpful.

      1. Kevin Kimes says:

        Informative? About what? 😀

    2. Mark got awesome sense of humour. To perform this kind of act you need to bold and do not care what other people will tell.

      1. who2india says:

        Totally 2nd you…

  3. Great and impressive fun in the video,really enjoy reading most part of the video.

    1. Yes Romantic night was simply awesome … People were starting to shoot videos. Lollllz

  4. Jeffrey Kang says:

    This is a great start to a weekly show, if that’s what he wants to turn this into. But my question is this: Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?

  5. Kevin Martin says:

    Wow, I didn’t know it was possible to get away with doing with so many outrageous things at the Apple Store.

    1. Yeah Kevin its amazing and have you enjoyed the video ?

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        Yeah if the is one in my town, I’m gonna try parking my car inside the store. See if they gonna stop me lol

        1. Now that will be too much to do ….

          1. Erwin Miradi says:

            And that’s the point! lol

    2. PPC Ian says:

      Me too. I do remember a while back, John tried to do some antics in one of his videos at the NY Apple Store. Always a fun place to visit.

    3. He was not getting away …. He was there for full fun ….

  6. I have seen three times the video,well thanks for sharing with us.

    1. I am not too much crazy about this topic.

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        @ Rajib: Why so serious dude? Everybody is enjoying the topic.

        1. Virtual Tour says:

          HAHA, seriously. Why? It’s a very chill video!

          1. comeon Rajib this is simply 3 minutes video for fun … So enjoy it

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        I watched it 6 times. I think Mark’s ideas are hilarious.

        1. Virtual Tour says:

          I just watched it again as well, VERY FUNNY

          1. So which part you like most ?

        2. Erwin Miradi says:

          @ ZK: The romantic date lol

  7. Olefin says:

    That is pretty funny. Pizza delivery is actually a pretty good idea while you’re waiting to be served by one of their experts

    1. Kevin Kimes says:

      Especially since, in some stores at some times, it can take FOREVER! Heh.

      Or… so I heard…

    2. Yes pizza delivery was quite useful while other act was simply to check their patience.

      So apple store really gives full power to its visitors … Still remember that video of John where he took ipad 2 from back.

  8. It is quit interesting to see about Apple Store and Thanks John.

  9. i just joined Apple Store program. Thanks John for this sharing

    1. PPC Ian says:

      What is the Apple Store program?

      1. Joines apple store program ? What is that mate … Will you please tell us in details …

  10. Phil says:

    Did you already hear about those fake Apple stores in China ?
    They know what to copy and why … $$$

      1. PPC Ian says:

        I’ve been reading all about that in the news. It’s quite amazing how similar the copies are.

        1. Because of China is managing production of many products and company is enjoying the profit and that nation is facing unemployment issue. Lollllzzz

      2. Kevin Kimes says:

        Maybe that’ll convince Apple to start manufacturing their devices here, instead of their sneaky labeling of “DESIGNED IN CALIFORNIA (manufactured in China)”.

    1. Abhik says:

      I highly doubt they can copy the coolness 😀

  11. Erwin Miradi says:

    LOL!! I really like the romantic date idea.. So funny.

  12. Just visit “My Damn Channel”. It’s cool.

  13. i love apple products

      1. Abhik says:

        What areApple products do you have, Sara?
        I am planning a iPhone 4. They just lunched in India.

        1. Erwin Miradi says:

          I personally think they’re cool. But I’m not really that crazy to Apple products.

          1. Virtual Tour says:

            I so got all 3 and love them all!

          2. Kevin Kimes says:

            I might get the next gen iPhone, if they don’t lock it down to one or two networks here in the US (what a pile of ____ that they do that only in the US). If I want a tablet, I’ll get a non-apple one that runs FLASH and acts like a real computer.

            Laptop, I’ll take a non-overpriced one with faster hardware and a better warranty from Power Notebooks.

        2. I doubt you will be able to use it at full.

          What is the purpose of buying iphone 4 or you are buying just because this is apple product.

          Abhik do you have ipad …

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I use so many Apple products. The big 3 are my iPad, iPhone, and MacBook.

      1. Real revolution from apple started with the ipod and than touch … Iphone and ipad.

  14. beyey says:

    Apple does best, in my opinion …

  15. fas says:

    I love Apple for their coolness 🙂

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Me too. Apple and Steve Jobs are so good at marketing. However, they can also back up all the marketing talk with an amazing product!

      1. Kevin Kimes says:

        Yep. Apparently Steve keeps the hierarchy of management very flat, so he can ensure consistency across every aspect of the business.

      2. Their product can do the marketing themselves … From one user to next and so on ….

  16. Abhik says:

    Man!!!
    That’s just hilarious.

  17. Mate Hegedus says:

    Guys, you don’t realize this but this is just a massive promotion for Apple.

    All the videos about the apple store on youtube add up to MILLIONS of views.

    Free promotion!

    1. arun says:

      you are absolutely right.. anyways apple is a brand.. worth free promotion..

    2. Yes this proves that if you have awesome service or awesome product than people will do free promotion for you.

  18. Deneil says:

  26. apple product are best when compare some other products

  27. All major brands are copying the style of apple. Phones, ipads …

  28. Kavya Hari says:

    Initially, i like apple products 🙂 and, it’s always great info on here 🙂

  29. kelly says:

    Apple products have unique design and applications. Moreover if any product found faulty the device gets replaced instead of repair.

    Apple is unique in their product support

  30. Whitney says:

    Oh my gosh, this is hilarious!! Goats, pizzas, romantic dates? Apple rules! By the way, they really know how to treat customers. Very entertaining video!

  31. Juice Fast says:

    Crazy video..: ) Apple’s success is largely because they have great products. Great marketing can’t really help a crappy product for very long, but Apple always brings quality products AND service to the table. I read an article in Yahoo this morning about Apple having more cash in reserve then the U.S. government. Crazy…

  32. i love apple product use to buy them alone

  33. Essays says:

    Pizza in the apple store! come on, how they could deliver it without any proper address,, second floor, green shirt, you are too much man 🙂

  34. Amani says:

  35. Technary says:

  36. Gift Ideas says:
