T-Mobile is trying to go for a little bit of a tougher image with its advertising campaign. But I don’t think this is what the company had in mind.

A man in Manchester, England went absolutely berserk in a T-Mobile retail store, ripping displays off the wall and taking a fire extinguisher to the surroundings. It all unfolded as onlookers watched from outside.

Maybe he didn’t like T-Mobile’s retail look, or was angry about hidden charges on his phone bill or just disgusted with the “Full Monty” promotion. Whatever the case, we’ve never seen anything quite like this.

The most amazing thing — after the 3-minute tirade concludes — is how easily he succumbs to police officers as they slap handcuffs on him. Wow.
