Check this out, this is like Divine Brown (the Hugh Grant hooker) fame.

So, a bunch of kids run each other over with cars on video. MTV's show, Jackass, is blamed. There's universal condemnation and hysteria. But, no one's paying attention to the fact that they say they weren't emulating Jackass and the runover kid doesn't have cable (look at the link).

But, the media in some places is showing the video over and over and they are swamped with interview requests. So, they become famous for being stupid teenagers? This is news?
