The Neistat brothers are back …

I read this article in the NYTimes.com and remembered their first video about stealing bikes.  Now it is Casey Neistat who made a new video.

“I recently spent a couple of days conducting a bike theft experiment, which I first tried with my brother Van in 2005.  I locked my own bike up and then proceeded to steal it, using brazen means — like a giant crowbar — in audacious locations, including directly in front of a police station. I wanted to find out whether onlookers or the cops would intervene.  What you see here in my film are the results.”

  1. This is just so amazing? I remember the earlier videos that he and his brother did together. What kind of reaction would something like this get in the Netherlands?

    • This would get the same reaction in the Netherlands. I’ve experienced it myself many years ago, when I had to “steal” my own bike because I lost my only key. Before by-passers could intervene, I was on forehand explaining the reason of what I was doing. But I’m sure that if I hadn’t said anything, nobody would give a damn …..
      I think that a national television-program in which “bike-thieves” are stealing a bike (like candid-camera) , will open eyes and change the opinion about bike thieves.
      For now, we only have internet ……..
