Kidnap Prank Goes Bad
This video was filmed in September 2012. A nice woman with a questionable IQ called the police after seeing a semi-naked boy wearing toy handcuffs escaping from the boot of a car and then making a jog for his life. The boy then stopped running and just waited for his kidnapper to catch up to him. The larger kidnapper then caught up to the small restrained boy, but was defeated when the boy touched him to the ground. A few metres up ahead, the chase ended in some bushes, where the boy and his kidnapper stopped to have a chat in plain sight of everyone. Because this staged event looked so real a woman called the police; and in doing so created, in the Police's minds, the false belief that a boy was kidnapped. The police spent 4 hours searching for the boy before giving up. 5 months later, detectives rocked up at our homes to question us about a 'create false belief incident'. 5 months of investigation spent searching for a few kids who accidentally and indirectly wasted 4 hours of their time. 5 months of investigation; 4 hours time. 4 hours searching for a kidnap victim, 5 months searching for YouTube filmmakers. I just needed to empasise that one. Shortly after the nice detective informed me I wasn't being arrested, he arrested me. In the end, every person who was involved in the video (even those who simply came to help because they had a good camera) were fined $1400 each and weren't allowed to contact each other by any means for 5 months. My lawyer said this was a ridiculous bail term, considering he was currently on a murder trial, and the two accused were living in the same freaking cell.
tl;dr We sacrificed our lives to bring you this video; we hope you enjoy it.
