    Did Johnny Vegas Resort to Attempted Robbery to Bail Himself Out of Debt?

    His incompetence in picking winners is only rivaled by his incompetence in crime...

    Also I like the Yankees tonight on the RL or whatever.

    I think it's real. The robber probably wasn't convincing enough. I'm not saying the patrons of the salon weren't scared, but there seemed to be an element of "is this guy serious?" What was he even pointing at them, a toaster cover?

    Plus the women were heavy set and hemmed in, it's not like they had a whole lot of options. Frozen in place was as good as any. Furthermore staged events can be uploaded to YouTube, sure, but they don't get reported on by news outlets.

    Staged events get reported on by news outlets all the time, but that's a whole nother topic... I meant more like these new age pranksters or social experiments, unless something goes horribly awry. I don't remember the details of Balloon Boy but that's neither here nor there.

    There's really no incentive for this to be staged. You think those middle aged women and that advanced age, Asian salon proprietor got together with some black dude and decided "Hey, lets fake a robbery where everyone is uncannily calm. Maybe it'll get picked up by a local news outlet."

    It would all come out in the wash once the authorities interviewed the attempted "victims" anyhow. It's all risk with no reward. Literally nothing about your scenario makes sense.

    You're right. They probably all selling autographed memorabilia on Ebay right now for top dollar.

    And since no one knows it was staged, that black guy who agreed to partake in the theater of the absurd now gets to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life and hope he doesn't do hard time in the county clink for acting like a robber. I'm sure the salon owner gave him a free trim for his efforts, so perhaps it's all worth it in the end.

    Imagine being a robber showing up to work with no gun, and attempting to mug a man with no money.

    That's a rough day at the office.

    Serial killers are usually victims of MKultra CIA program.

    That's a big story around these parts.
    That nut job lived across the Sound on what we call the South Shore of Long Island Sound.
    Babylon LI to be precise.

    My place is on the North Shore in Ct.
    Big story here.

    No, Homie1975 insists it was a theatrical production for fame and glory.

    That 70 year old Vietnamese man probably immigrated here many moons ago, hardly knowing a lick of English, and built his business from the ground up in a foreign land all as a front for his real dream... to have security footage of himself make the rounds on news stations.

    He can now check that off his bucket list.

    Exactly. People expect typical Western white girl reactions, just flailing and screeching for no reason. Plus, the perpetrator wasn't exactly the stuff of nightmares. If he was at a poker table, you'd call his bluff without blinking.

    The squeak of the door right around the 0:41 is the perfect punctuation to this anticlimactic robbery attempt. He comes in yelling and pacing and yelling some more, realizes it just wasn't gonna be his day, and exits in the ultimate walk of shame as the swinging of the door highlights his feeble effort.... "eeek."

    Johnny is a legend. I can see him sitting in the can with multiple mandatory sentences tacked on for several botched robbery attempts and yet all he's talking about in gen pop is the one successful theft of a handful of Snickers bar from a convenient store
