Is the video below—in which a disgruntled driver cuts down a parking meter with a chainsaw—real or fake? The internet isn't quite sure, but the video has blown up in the meantime. The uploader writes: "caught this on my iphone during a cab ride in brooklyn: a cop was giving these two guys a ticket because their van was parked by an expired parking meter and one of them got really mad and cut off the meter with a saw!!!" Watch below:
At the end of the day, we don't think it really matters if it's real or not—because once it's on the internet, there's bound to be copycats. There are still a few of these scattered around the city (outside of Manhattan), but once some impressionable, nihilistic teenagers get a look at this vid, we imagine there'll be even fewer of these relics left.
