i need to write a paper by tomorrow and my teacher just now told me that the topic i chose was not "acceptable," so i need to choose a new one. that's all well and good, but i need to take a survey about said topic, and the last one took several days, which i don't have, so my only option is to ask all of you.  :w00t:

all i need is a few responses to the following questions about Rémi Gaillard, the french prankster(if you've never seen any of his videos, they can be seen here: ).

do you think what he does is immoral/uncalled for? is he a jerk?

do you think he is trying to prove some point (i.e. make people think more about their every day lives by putting them into unordinary situations) or is he just being silly?

if you were presented with a situation like one of these (i.e. assaulted by a giant bottle of hair-remover) how would you react?

i have no idea how i'm going to get this done tonight, but anything helps, guys. thanks =)

1. Nah, as long as there is some form of off-camera consent it's all good.

2. Not sure, but it's pretty funny regardless.

3. Laugh my ass off. I can appreciate a good prank even when it's pulled on me.

Not sure if this helps at all, but it's not like I have anything better to do while I restore my ipod firmware... so if you have any other questions fire away.

1. I wouldn't call what he does immoral, but he is a jerk. Even his cameramen attest to this.

2. I don't think he's trying to prove a point, he just likes showing off his skills and being a jerk.

3. Having a soccer ball kicked at/into my car or work establishment is not really a big deal. It's a soccer ball, it really isn't going to cause catastrophic damage. I would probably be annoyed, but not to the point where I'd want to chase the guy down or call the police or anything. And I wouldn't really compare these situations to being "assaulted by a giant bottle of hair-remover," since that can actually inflict damage both on your body and your image for a long period of time.
