Man lining up for 3DS gets moved on by cops, comes back

Triforce, the plucky young maniac who is already standing in line for a Nintendo 3DS, had his efforts scuppered on day two of his vigil, when a new shift of Best Buy workers refused to understand his activities. 

His explanations fell on deaf ears, with staff members claiming he was loitering. They eventually called the NYPD, who moved him on and told him he couldn't wait outside Best Buy anymore. That seemed to work for a short while, as he simply waited on the other side of the street, and has now returned to his exalted place at the doors of Best Buy. 

Triforce's current plan is to keep lining up and running away whenever suspicious Best Buy staff members turn up. 

This is absurd, but you gotta respect the man's plucky determination. Best of luck to the guy! (Also, Destructoid gets namedropped in the video. Check it out!).
