Is the laugh because of stress releif, or is it because of "omg, you guys are MORONS"?

What if someone decided that a little lady isnt that dangerous and decides to capture her, preferably a police officer?

To be sure that doesnt happen, it may be staged, or if not its a stupid idea that might get someone hurt.

I'm assuming they have someone monitoring the situation pretty closely.  And it's not America, so it's less likely the cops are going to just walk up and start shooting.

The way they zoom these cameras makes me think that they cannot possibly be hidden enough not to be noticed.

The first woman looked directly at one of the cameras more than once, and then very obviously remembered she wasn't supposed to know about them and averted her eyes.

Uhm... and then the commercial people were forced to include that footage in the commercial?

Without speaking to whether the people in this commercial are actors or not, it's pretty easy to hide a camera these days.

She probably assumed it was a security camera. I'd expect that the first thing I'd do if I were declared wanted by the police would be to look at all of the cameras in the area.

"The victims might need more than deodorant to deal with this stress test - Nivea should pay for therapy. underwear."

If the prank was real, which it wasn't.

I do not think I would react well.

Holy shiat, came here to say this.  Talk about a doppelganger.

This was pretty well done, Germans.  Good job.  Although, the girl in the scarf looks just like my ex-girlfriend with a tad more innocence.  I has a sad now.

That first girl looks like the cat that ate the canary.  Imagine how funny it would have been if she actually had like 4 kilos of heroin strapped to her waist.

I kept waiting for her to be tackled by a bystander looking to collect some award money.

Maybe you missed the part where at the end, *everyone* applauds - and it's the same people in the room for each "victim.". It's a stage; everyone in the room except for the victim is in on it.

I remember that stress prank they did with Poland back in '39. Unfortunately, the guy with the suitcase was shot crossing the border, so they just went ahead with it.
 
2013-02-21 05:42:53 AM
I'd like to see the clip where they unknowingly pick an actual wanted criminal.  Then present the Nivea case.

Smooth move. Now innocent people have to sit next to these people for an entire plane flight with their flop sweat that smells like ass. (If real)

Can you really blame the cops. They are scared.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was all staged and everyone sitting around the 'talent' were all paid.

I'm not gonna lie... if that happened to me, I'd start thinking I was in some James Bourne style conspiracy where I couldn't remember my past and was on the run.

It would make for an awesome double agent prank.   Your friend thinks he is setting you up with this gag, then as soon as your image appears on the news, you lean over hand him a locked container you had with you and tell him that you will be back for it in 3 days.   As the 'guards' approach, you pull off some sort of 'move' that disables them and then run off out of sight.  As your friend sits there in a 'WTF just happened moment' have 'agents' approach him and take him to the back room with the box, and have them start asking questions:  How long have you known 'The Jaguar'?  Where did he tell you to take the box, what is your connection with the Solar infinity group?...   Then they leave him in the room for a moment to 'think for a few moments while we get the interrogator'...   You then 'drop' from the ceiling and tell your friend that this conspiracy goes far deeper than he imagined and he must come with you if he wants to survive.   Then, kick open the door to a big crew and a sign "You're on Candid Camera"
