Infamous French prankster arrested for impersonating a traffic camera

While it's probably safe to say that most people think traffic cameras are pretty annoying, infamous French prankster Rémi Gaillard has brought harassing drivers to a whole new level. In this video, he impersonates a traffic camera, literally flashing lights at commuters and then chasing them while dressed in a cardboard costume. While many people have found the joke to be out-of-line, calling Gaillard obscene words and saying he is "destroying the very fabric of society", I have to say that from this side of the action the video does have a lot of humor to it, especially with the aggressive background music. The fun didn't last too long, however, as the cops arrested him before the situation could get too out of hand.
