3:03 pm
>> here comes the dramatic end. there's a gunshot. and they don't know who fired the shot. was it the man or a police officer? they send a police dog in to investigate. the police dog has found him. he's on the ground. police now say tha oo approaching fired the shot. >> do you know what made them fire the shot, that he finally turned the gun towards police? was it sort of a suicide by cop? >> they're still investigating. interesting you asked that question, because police said he had threatened to die suicide by cop in the past. a greek tv host ended up with egg on his face, literally. >> what you're seeing on the left-hand side your screen is a tv host for tv 1 in greece and he's interviewing a local politician. this happened late last week. do you see him look away from his guest and look towards the outside of the studio. >> ow! getting pelted. >> what he saw coming in were 17

[ chanting ] >> that's probably greek, too. >> probably really good for his skin. >> reports on what kind of greek yogurt it was, but the incredible thing, how calm this guy is. >> standing there taking it like a man. >> the crazy thing is, this was a live television broadcast. so people are watching all over greece and see it happen. you see the director cut away to something else. protesters are so upset because this show had a spokesperson from an openly neo-nazi group, the golden don party, as a guest. >> good thing it was a taped show. or maybe somebody would come in and dump soup on nick. >> we don't know how many ex girl friends he's got. we need the national guard to guard this place.
3:05 pm
>> yeah. fighting urban traffic on your daily commute can be a drag. especially when you're actually in a fight. a woman got on this train, jumped up and just starting wailing on this guy. you see him kick back. look at this unlikely hero in this situation. the calm weapon of choice? cheddar pringles and a bag of gummi bears. charles saunder, this video has blown up all over the place. now widely known in new york as "snackman." >> prink bringals make you like superhero. once you pop, you can't stop. >> everyone knows that. i also got some subway drama for you this time from south korea. according to commenters on this video, before the camera started rolling, a bit of an argument between this older gentleman you're seeing with the umbrella and the woman in the blue there, who's about to light up a
3:06 pm
cigarette. the older man -- watch what he does. pokes and prods with his umbrella at this lady's face. in south korea, they're like super clean freaks. can you tell. look at the subway floor. looks like you could eat off of it. i venture to guess she's breaking the law here smoking on the subway and this guy is not having it. watch what happens. she hits his umbrella away, gets off. whatever drink she has, all over this guy the face. now, first he sits there calmly and sort of wipes off the beverage. then watch. >> oh! >> goes up and gives this woman a hard shove that looks like right to her face. >> you know what? all he really needed was a bag of potato chips. >> what they really needed was snackman. >> a dramatic challenge. take one. this video really hit home for me, and you're about to see why. [ beeping ]
3:07 pm
[ speaking in foreign language ]. >> it is in spanish, because the video was created by our mexico of the future, a national social movement. but it really needs no translation. the images speak for themselves. the video starts off with a man reading a newspaper with the cover about crime and violence in the country. he gets dressed, walks out the door. soon as he walks out the door she being robbed and goes on to show different scenarios of a kidnapping what seems to be some sort of bribe of a political candidate and in one part of the video you see what looks like a [ speaking in foreign language ] someone who's going to help illegal immigrants cross the border. >> all played by little kids. >> the kids are playing out what their lives could be like if there is no real change in mexico. at the very end of the video, we end up with a lot of people behind bars. then you hear the voice of a little girl saying, if this is the future that awaits me, i don't want it. and she addresses the four
3:08 pm
presidential candidates of mexico right now directly saying, are you running for just the position or are you doing it to really change the future of our country? >> wow. an effective ad campaign if it's challenging the people running for political office to do the right thing. to want to make the country better and get rid of some of the problems that are plaguing mexico right now. this is no accident. >> because he starts backing up gorge forward, backing up, going forward. >> see what made this guy go crazy at the car dealer. and this guy is on a rant. >> for every girl who complains about how big her butt is, there are at least 20 guys saying, stop! >> see what he's got to say, and tell us what you think.

3:11 pm great videos all day long. trips to the car dealership are like the auto shop. they can be stressful, annoying, take forever. one guy had enough. he decided to driving his own suzuki grand vatara into a russian nissan dealership. at first glance you might think, oh, he might have hit the gas instead of the brake. like this might be an accident. not an accident at all, because he starts backing up, going forward, backing up, going forward. smashing even more into these cars that are on the showroom. destroyed, like, four cars bp now, as he goes off screaming you think, okay, he's probably done now. right? >> oh! >> what? he's back. >> nope. not even close to being done. at another point goes off the screen again and takes his car even further into the dealership. >> was it the industry? was that it? what put him off the edge? >> apparently he was upset because he'd been waiting three
3:12 pm
hours for his car to be fixed, and just was fed up. >> bring it back in here to have them fix the body damage that he caused to his own car? >> probably not, because the guy's facing criminal charges that could lead to five years in prison. the guy's 35 years old. he's gynecologist in moscow. >> seems to make sense now. >> when the car eventually broke down, they pulled him out of the driver's side window, tied him up before the police could get there. >> i wonder what does he think is going to happen after, once he's done all of this. oh, well, we'll fix your transmission now. sorry for the wait. >> if i was a salesman on the floor this day, a lovely silver nissan, slightly used. we'll give awe great use. >> open box deal. >> yeah. you don't hate your body! take one. >> we hear women talk a lot about body image. now there's a man weighing in,

and his name is mike falzone, and she a self-proclaimed musician. he said i make music, make people laugh and do neither on purpose. >> every time i have to hear about someone hating some part of their body can brings to mind the birthday present effect. imagine a little boy and girl open up a tightly wrapped box. look around, first thing they say is i hate this. when you talk about how much you hate your eyes, legs, thighs, that's exactly what you sound like. and that's how annoying you are to everybody else. wi wi >> what made him go off on this rant? >> i'm sick and tired of hearing a bunch of beautiful girls talk about how [ bleep ] their bodies are. shut up. what would be nice for once? a girls body image actually matched up with how guys think they should look. >> the things we hate about hours, he goes ton to explain it, are some of the things guys love the most. >> if i hear another girl say,
3:14 pm
oh, my butt's too big. >> for every girl saying and thinking their butt is so big there's guys saying, i love your butt. >> then he gets really real. >> once you walk around hospice a little while and tell me how many times you hear, smaller. >> no. that's not the way it works, because when you're dying and surrounded by friends and family you may not of see again, no one's worried how chubby their thighs look. >> be proud of who you are and happy to be in your own skin. >> you got a big butt. >> shake it. >> yeah. >> just don't break it. >> what do you think? are you sick of hearing women complain about their bodies? a message on facebook, it minute. take skive diving and moosh it together with wing suit flying, tomorrow on "right this minute." there he is. just trying to shop.
