    I agree, totally, well mostly, in a totally mostly way, which is more than mainly totally, if you catch my drift

    @ h0ax_d3m0n

    Normaly you would say something like -"By doing something special, you become someone special."

    Now, by doing whatever, you become whoever. At the end of the day, nothing changes for John Doe.

    Sheer class.

    And Quakor, we roll slightly differently in Europe. We don`t immediately sue people for what is obviously a (funny and harmless) joke.

    I love the last guy - he totally got into it! I cracked up when they asked him what he thought of his performance..."It was hard. The mountain was very steep."

    "It`s by doing whatever that ones becomes whoever"

    In the context it is said, that`s not exactly the message conveyed though.

    It`s more like: "It`s by doing anything that you become anyone."

    "anyone" used in the "anyone who`s anyone" sense. It may sound like a silly saying, but it`s oddly inspiring.

    I was trying to decide whether to watch it, then I saw the comments were positive, so I opened it. Then I immediately saw "Remi Gaillard" and I sat up and got really excited (no homo) because he is the best prankster in the world. I love his stuff.

    So, thank you IAB for posting Remi Gaillard and thank you comment people for making sure I watched the vid.

    The only thing that was missing were two ladies in yellow dresses to give him a little stuffed lion and kiss him on the cheek (if you watch the Tour de France you know exactly what this is).

    But, awesome job getting the flag waving crazies either in a devil costume, rainbow wig, or underwear. I love it! They even got the Basque flag as well as a few international ones, and the Basque flag is ALWAYS present at Le Tour.

    Stagefreak - I`m sure you`d be pretty scared and confused if you cycle up a hill all peacefully, and then get mobbed by a large group of exited people.

    That so reminds me of when the Olympic Torch came to our city and the prank we pulled.

    Crowds lining highway for about 3 km. Mate #1, east of bridge, on CB tells us real torchbearer just gone onto the bridge. Mate #2, in running clothes and carrying fake torch, eases through crowd on west side, starts running along road. Everyone nearby knows he`s fake cause they saw him start, but as he goes round corner, everyone farther along doesn`t know, thinks he`s the REAL runner. He runs 500m with his fake torch, gets level with us, we run out with anti-Olympic protest signs, mug him and dowse the `Olympic Torch` with fire extinguishers before being arrested by cops who don`t know he`s not the real one.

    Just as they`re dragging us to van, real runner comes around the corner.

    We get charged with Disturbing the Peace & Causing an Affray, prohibited from talking to the media about it (under Australia`s `You can`t profit from crime` legislation) but it was totally worth it.

    Idk, The Chaser`s War on Everything seemed to be allowed to profit off of everything they did.

    > i hate the french. they made Chicago loose the Olympic bid.

    On the Plus Side though, they can probably capitalize sentences and spell "lose" correctly.

    And I doubt they made Chicago lose the BID, they might have not been the winning bid but they still had the right to bid, France didn`t rob them of that.

    Of course they do! What about the French government`s joke on the innocent civilians on board the Greenpeace vessel Rainbow Warrior, docked in the neutral country of New Zealand and enjoying the local tourist attractions? That joke was a real blast!

    This video made me LOL`d, which is extremely rare. Really creative!

    It reminds of the flash mob pranks, but I`d say this is one of them.

    Although I do not support the actions of the French military, by "enjoying the local tourist attractions" I assume you mean "illegally monitoring and hampering French nuclear tests".
    Still, the French were at fault for the death of Fernando Pereira.
