Domino’s Video Prank
One of the mysteries of law enforcement in the age of YouTube: Why do people proudly post videos of themselves engaged in illegal acts? They're just begging to have the police come knocking on their door. So anyway, the latest example of video self-incrimination involves two Domino's employees who created a prank video showing one of them farting on the food and sticking it up his nose as the other one laughed and egged him on. They posted the video on YouTube and it promptly went viral. Domino's then fired them (the two had to see that coming). One of the two emailed the company a groveling apology: “It was fake and I wish that everyone knew that!!!! I AM SOO SORRY!” Nevertheless, Domino's is still planning to press felony charges against them. The video has now been removed from YouTube, but Consumerist still has a copy of it posted. [NY Times]

Huh. This entry says it has one comment, but when I click, there is no comment.

It's been doing that a bit for me, too. I think it might be from when spam comments are removed.

Or deleting spammy members without deleting their posts first.

Well, here's a comment - These guys should have realised that giveing out copyrighted recipe information on the Net was a stupid idea and bound to get them fired.

What? How else do you explain the taste of Dominos?
