Today I came across a very funny video on jest.com. They describe it as a "prank that proves people will believe anything you say if you look like a newsman and you’re holding a microphone". And it is true!

I've always said that people are sheep, its really kind of sad that we as a society never really question the things that are fed to us in the media, especially from the "news" programs. Worse, not only do the people in this video believe what the guy is saying without question, they then feel that they having just heard this outrageous news feel they can offer intelligent commentary.

In that way it's kind of scary, but mostly it's just fun, and funny.
