The videographer wasn't doing anything wrong.
The two women and the cyclist are the jerks in this vid.

Kinda like mr. beanz vs. another skinny guy with shaved legs who thinks he's a tough guy. A whole bunch of bluster and nothing happens from either end.

It's ironic because telling a photogrpaher or videographer to leave a public space is like telling a cyclist to get off the road!

Uh...doesn't the cyclist's chivalry appear to be motivated by "hey hot girl notice me defending you." and not for nothing but there is a difference between a pro shoot and some random guy with a camera being a distraction.

I just love it when women dress in a revealing nature and then they themselves (not in this case) or others get offended when others look. Does the old bag and the idiot cyclist really think this young lady is concerned about people looking at her, even in a suggestive manner? Did it even occur to them that she is using her looks as a means to get attention for whatever act she is trying to perform? Did it even occur to them that THEY are the ones screwing up the whole thing? People are idiots.

Stop making sense. Reason will get you nowhere here.

The videographer isn't doing anything illegal. "Wrong" and illegal are two different things.

He was being an obnoxious a-hole and a pervert, thus asking him to "move along" was fair enough. The fact that he was prepared to stand his ground and argue when asked to leave proves that he was up to no good (aka being a pervert).

he actually wasn't obnoxious at all until everyone started telling him something. He was not disturbing the performance in any way. If you want to go out to one of the busiest intersections in the world in tiny shorts and start doing splits, you must expect something like this.

the fact he refused to leave just shows that he has as much right to stand there as the next person. I doubt that group rented out that corner and has the right to ask anyone to leave or "move along"

The cycle guy puts himself face to face with camera guy and says get that camera out of my face. very funny. I'm getting in your face but get that camera out of my face! The "perv" accusation i think can go either way. I can see both sides of the argument. The confrontation with the totally unconnected random cyclist is the funny part.

Photo shoot, for some reason or another - notice the photog with the radiopopper (for off-camera flash) and the assistant with the reflective dish.

****** -- so what are we then?


stupid person, airhead, slow
1 + 1 doesnt equal to 11, it equals to 2 ya ******!

basically a ****** is just a kindhearted, rather oblivious goofball. it's term of endearment really. it comes from the ancient scottish verb "to goub", which has to do with doing a dance and smiling sheepishly while doing so, exposing the goubs in one's teeth.
"That John is such a ******," said Jane as John vector-danced* his Junior Prom away.

*footnote: the vector dance involves angling one's arms to form angles and vectors and pumping them back and forth to music. basically, it's geeky as hell. but completely sexy.

A term of endearment used in place of a person's real name; a nickmame. The first word that comes to mind when your baby starts to crawl, walk, talk. Used only in the most loving of ways with no negative connation at all. A loving nickname for someone who is pure, innocent, warms your heart and makes you smile.
Have you seen ******?

Incorrect. Standing your ground is in no way proof of any wrong doing.

Idiots galore in this vid.

Anyone who intentionally does something provocative in public has no right to be annoyed if their plans succeed. Even someone like me would get plenty of attention if I went out in public wearing a skin tight nothing and started sticking my butt in the air while bent over a chair I grabbed by a sidewalk cafe while people pointed reflecting panels and cameras at me. But in all fairness, it appeared the shoot may have ended because of the confrontation rather than the attention the girl was getting.

Most if not all the people hassling the video man were themselves ogling. Why weren't they just going on with their business like most of the other people passing by or in the background? The guy shooting was intentionally been an ass, so any moron could figure that he wanted attention and simply ordering him around wouldn't lead to anything good. The cyclist shouldn't have touched the guy, his camera, or run over his foot. That's way over the top even if the videographer is a total dоuchebаg.

And a bunch of us actually watched this. I want the 2 minutes of my life back.

Exactly. It was the old broad who made a stink in the first place. Seems like she's the one with the issues, and then we she took it upon herself to characterize the camera guy as the pervert, the herd mentality took over. I applaud him for standing up for himself.
