Prank Video Depicts Meter Maid Lifting Cab

By Robert Paul Reyes

What if you had the strength to lift a car with your bare hands? We gave that power to Jenni and dressed her up as a New York City meter maid. Hidden cameras captured the reactions of people witnessing her teaching a rude cab driver a lesson.


YouTube video description

Pranksters rigged a vehicle made to look like a New York City taxi cab so a woman dressed as a meter maid could lift it over her head without much effort.

Two actors portrayed a cabbie parked illegally and a meter maid using her superhuman strength to enforce her authority.

Meter maids or to use the politically-correct term "parking enforcement officers" are universally despised; they symbolize the all-encompassing power of the state. It`s not surprising that regular folks believe that these quasi-police functionaries have super villain strength.

It`s hilarious to watch the reactions of people witnessing this strange episode, but what`s even stranger is the pedestrian who has an old fashioned phone receiver attached to his Smartphone. What the hell is up with that?
