In this video, an aspiring con artist is filmed jumping on the hood of a car and pretending he is injured. The incident seems to have occurred in Taiwan, and was posted on YouTube in 2011.
What the aforementioned man doesn't know is that the driver installed a dashboard camera, which in this case turns out to be a very smart decision. The video clearly shows him stopping at a marked crosswalk, and the pedestrian literally jumping on his car.
The short video leaves you wanting more. It would be interesting to know if the “victim” tried calling the police, or asked for financial compensation right away. The driver would have had to restrain himself from admitting he owned a dashboard cam in this case.
After getting personal information from the allegedly injured party, playing the video for the police would be extremely funny. The expression on the young con man's face after finding out that he had been filmed during this stunt would be priceless.
Judging by the ease and confidence with which the stunt is performed, we can assume this is not the first time our unlucky villain tries something like this. However, having your face posted all over YouTube must make playing tricks like this one a lot more difficult now.
