9:32 am
they decided to record this from done the street. they also put hidden cameras on the truck as well and they installed a gps tracker into the bundles of wire. they were able to track the wire back to a recycling facility where they tracked down these four guys. you may look at this video and think, well, this is an isolated incident. it happened 41 times in three months this summer. >> there's so many angles of this, it looks like they're reenacting it, like they're paid actors but this is when it's actually happening. >> linemen in the detroit area say they're in jeopardy. some people are lurking in the bushes. others claim they've had guns pulled on them while they're at stop signs and getting ripped off. this just happened to you like today, right? >> it was a couple days ago. i thought they turned off my water for nonpayment. people came to my house and said your pipes are missing.
9:33 am
it never occurred to me i didn't have water because someone stole my pipe. >> these guys were quite active, $30,000 in total. those four men were caught and pleaded guilty to felony larceny. >> the human body is an amazing thing, especially under high pressure scenarios. this is mark healy, a big wave surfer. he's made some friends. the biggest friend he's making is this giant tiger shark coming right for him. what do you do in this scenario? >> punch him in the nose. >> kind of. >> gouge himself eyes out with your finger. >> pray. >> all of those would be good. mark went with the old heisman move. kind of just turned him around. >> but there's another one. >> the other one doesn't bother
9:34 am
him, swims away. mark comes to the surface, listen to what he says. >> what an [ bleep ] idiot! >> he has quite a swim to get out of the shark invested waters. >> from there we jump to thailand where this fella is known as the monkey man. he's performing for a crowd here. one quick look you notice he doesn't have any ropes. this is raw human strength. imagine how strong this guy's hands are. and he just sort of climbing around this rock face but just watch how impressive this gets. when he starts to be like upside down with his back facing the ground, think about the strength that it takes to do something like that. >> and you do see people sometimes end upside down and they have special shoes. this guy's not using anything and he's barefoot. >> barefoot on this jagged rock.
9:35 am
he's so limber. he looks like he's made out of rubber as he's climbing all over this stuff. >> hey, hey, hey. >> what is that? >> you notice somebody is being arrested here. this video is from russia. this isn't somebody just suspected of stealing a loaf of bread. let's show you what precipitated that arrest. you're looking at video from a club and at this club a police officer suspects somebody in this room right here is responsible for the death of somebody at that club earlier. so you see the officer standing there. he's showing his badge to all these people. he's questioning them because he believes one of these guys is a suspect. up see that guy there holding on to him? that's the man who was arrested. look what he's doing. he's got that officer by the throat. he's choking him. all these people, plus the guy holding the officer, they're kind of impeding the investigation. you can see what's going on with
9:36 am
them with the officer on the floor. >> no one else does anything. everyone watches. they peck up some stuff that fell, like some of the officers belonging. they just stay in there. >> do they think this guy putting the officer in the choke hod,do they thi to do anything with this? >> they suspected he's the culprit but after they arrested him, police say he admitted his involvement in the case. >> tgif, y'all! and coming up in a little buiit we are giving away a flat screen tv. >> you must be 18 years old, a u.s. resident and know the friday buzz word. good luck, y'all. >> the "new york times" recently posted a video online with a very interesting topic. >> right off the bat you see mr.

sosa, he's the president and director of miss venezuela. he says that the international rules don't specify that beauty has to be natural, so he encourages doing whatever you have to do to be pretty, to be beautiful, whether that includes nose jobs, boob jobs, whatever that means. in the country of venezuela, the standard of beauty has changed from what used to be as close to natural to suddenly anything goes. we get into the mannequins that are being used to sell clothing to women. and the woman at the store is also saying that, yeah, in the last few years, the busts on the mannequins has increased and that has also meant increase in sales. >> this is really sad and it's really depressing for all of the women who live in venezuela. >> women that aren't necessarily going to compete in a pageant
9:38 am
are selling their cars, they are mortgaging their homes to be able to get the money to pay for the surgeries. it's a big industry in that country because beauty is a big deal. in fact, one of the women in the videos that actually works making mannequins locally says herself if i could look look this, i would totally pay to have my surgery to look like this. >> which is crazy because even the mannequins look completely ridiculous. >> yeah. >> and it's tough to buy clothes because how the clothes in the store fit the mannequins, it's not close to how it fits you. >> unless you've altered yourself. >> it doesn't matter. it's the idea being sold to these women and they are buying. >> it's really heart breaking. i would imagine there's a ton of problems like eating disorders and low self-esteem that go along with this and some plastic surgeons are getting incredibly rich off of it. >> there's the old lumber jack way to cut down a tree. >> and then there's just the
9:39 am
fun, destructive way to do it. >> see how to take down a tree with one blow. >> and an ad company uses your worst nightmares to get attention. >> they like to do traumatic instead of dramatic. >> hear why they're using flat out fear in this viral video campaign. [uncle]this is hopscotch,okay?

there's the right way to cut down a tree and then there's just the fun, destructive way to do it. >> [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> you all right? >> yes. >> yeah! >> you can't call that cutting down a treat. that's shooting down a tree. >> apparently they used explosives and an ar-15 to ignite it. that essentially cut the tree down. it looks like the video they shot before this one was this video where they were taking down the dead tree. a little explosive, a little bit of fire power. >> looks like that was a dead tree they took down. when they did that, it looked like it damaged the tree behind it so that's where they do that one as well.

[ bleep ]. >>al yes. >> yeah! >> did you see that piece of wood fly back here? >> yeah. >> viral video marketing campaign, nothing new. we see them all the time on this show, all over youtube. >> good advertising should make you nervous, should scare you. but we're taking that idea to the next level. we call it experiential. >> he's talking about how they're into this viral marketing. they like do traumatic instead of dramatic in their commercials. here's one of their latest works.
