Video: Der Kommissar
Okay, to be honest, I have no idea what this guy is saying nor what he is doing running away from cops on a green screen. But that amazing (MS Paint-esque) image splice of him with his hands up every time there’s a “clap” is enough for it to deserve a post. Falco looks like he is casually jogging down a catwalk showcasing his new leather pants, not being chased by the police. But I’m really digging his casual, European vibe. As YouTube top commenter ClandestineOstrich says, “I wanna drive around Europe with this song blasting from my Skoda.”
This video would be a whole lot of fun to recreate and probably quite easy to do, seeing as people actually still dress like this in a non-ironic way.
Um, this needs to be my house. Now, please.
Occupy Wall Street News Round Up of the Day: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell delivers a scathing excoriation of the criminally under-reported police brutality exhibited during last weekend’s Occupy Wall Street protests.
The footage of police officers dragging women by their hair and tackling civilians to the ground simply for holding a video camera drew the ire of Anonymous members, who have released private details about suspected pepper-spraying police officer Anthony Bologna, and have vowed to “take [the NYPD] down from the Internet” if police brutality against the protesters persists.
Though O’Donnell’s show is called The Last Word, Matt Taibbi, popping his Occupy Wall Street cherry in Rolling Stone, notes that this movement may be instrumental in conquering Wall Street corruption by taking the important first step toward “making people aware of the battle lines.”
