PERTH, Australia — Fans are lining up in Colorado and around the world for the new iPhone 6 on Friday.

One man who was the first person to buy it in Australia has some ‘butter fingers’, according to Channel 9’s Today.

That’s because after waiting in line overnight, Jack Cooksey was the first to get his hands on the iPhone 6, but when he opened the box to show off the gadget to television cameras, he dropped it.

You could hear the phone smack the ground during the interview.

“I saw it hit the floor, and I was like ‘oh, no,no,no,no’,” Cooksey told Channel 9.
