The kidnap videos in Iraq are suspicious. Some say they are fake. Some make their own... what do you think of this one? A rare bit of humor from Al-Jazeera. [.wmv]

I think we should take his demands seriously.

Don't worry, it's not a gory execution video or anything. Just a silly spoof you typically wouldn't expect on the main page of a popular news site. Not very poignant, but chuckleworthy, nonetheless.

pretty funny.... by the way that's aljazeera.com, it's not the same thing as the television station. not sure if you knew that or if that was part of the joke.

Hmmmm....standard freshman "head in underwear" stupid video, on a site registered to a non-existing company headquartered at a virtual address...

or,

Real Aljazeera

Choose your own reality, I guess, but don't try to pass this crap off like it's on the real aljazeera, please.

Either you've been hoaxed, or you're trying to hoax others by using the MeFi front page as a spring board for this sophomoric prank.

huh.

I thought I typed in "www.metafilter.com", but it looks more like "www.fark.com." Nice PS, btw.

I still reckon the Berg video has half a dozen things very suspect about it.

And no! I'm not talking about the plastic chair!!!
