Melborea Moronica: New 'Depraved Species of Electric Flora' Found Growing in Melbourne, Australia
A Melbourne rugby reporter, Ben Davis, presents his live-to-air TV report on the night's game. Behind him a Brisbane Broncos fan pretends to lick his ear. A few seconds later the phantom ear licker returns, grabbing Davis in a headlock and knocking him off camera. Davis recovers, attempts to restart his report and is then attacked by the ear licker and around 10 of his mates, who proceed to bash the hapless reporter -- in full view of the still-rolling TV camera.
Unsurprisingly, a few days later Davis's attackers were caught and arrested, having not bothered to hide their gurning mugs from the camera. I've watched the footage again and again, as it's absolutely boggling, the sheer, brazen willingness of these men to perform for the lens, to not even bother to cloak their random acts of violence from a watching world.
