    Tried it a few times, got dirty looks. Was alright when I was younger, but perhaps they think I have an accomplice and am trying to distract them

    I highly doubt a YouTube video that lasted less than two minutes really ended up costing the taxpayer that much.

    Look at the war in Afghanistan, now there's a waste of taxpayer's money. :rolleyes:

    Would probably work for a child or an adult/elderly person, but a teenager would just look like he's taking the piss.

    I dunno. they probably set up multiple committees, employed professional cameramen, dancers and lyric writers and so on before setting off on fully funded trips to the US to get a better grasp of modern music.

    I'm sure they found a way to make it expensive.

    Don't forget the risk assessment and health and safety officer they'd have to pay to be carried out and visit. And someone to check that non of the lyrics or movements could be construded as being offensive in anyway, to anyone on the planet, even those without access to the video - you never know, they may hear about it somehow and then there might be a riot!

    Very true. You basically have to pay an expert to go up a ladder for you these days

    I sometimes wave at officers just to take the piss. I mean, its quite entertaining seeing as, especially in the neighbourhood that I reside in, they like to take the piss as well (i.e stop and searches as an obvious attempt to waste time/frustrate innocent teenagers- usually black but lets not get into that...)

    Quite annoying when a highly sarcastic cheesy grin and frantic waves are met with equally sarcastic grins and frantic waves.

    Depressingly close on a few points.
