L.A. Story

In a series of three short clips on YouTube, mnew00 records a large counterfeit bust in the clothing district in Los Angeles.  "Counterfeit Bust 1" show individuals watching the police confiscate counterfeit goods; "Counterfeit Bust 2" includes confused passersby, to whom the videographer explains that the goods are fake; and "Counterfeit Bust 3" shows the bagged goods in the aftermath of the bust.  The number of TV cameras present seems large even for L.A., a city in which events and people only exist if they're recorded on film, so my guess would be that the press was invited along on this raid.

Looks like Hollywood stars feigning a desire to hide from the public will have to wear real designer sunglasses this weekend.
