Defying Death, Legally

Jun 14, 2011

Casey Neistat coughed up $50 to the New York Police Department, and he's getting something in return: Revenge.

The shoestring documentary producer (who, with his brother, got picked up for an HBO show) has published various short YouTube features, including a relatively famous one about stealing bikes in Manhattan.

But this new one takes the cake. Neistat was fined $50 for failing to ride in a bike lane. I don't want to give away too much of the video, but hilarity ensues after the officer issues the summons. And there's a nice little shout out to WNYC, our member station in New York.
