This is just too delightful.

WFMU’s Beware of the Blog: The Bait Car Videos of British Columbia

Of course, videos like this make the prospect of encroaching governmental entrapment so worth the gamble! In a Burnaby, British Columbia video called Oh No (streaming wmv file), a Canadian car thief is grooving to The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony when he realizes that he’s the target of a dragnet. As he laments his predicament, he whines “oh fuck” and “oh no” to the music. Only when the police disable his car by remote control does he realize that he’s driving a bait car. By the end of the video, you actually feel bad for this guy - no mean feat.
