Published: Jun 14, 2012
Description: Londoner Rory left home one day to find his car, parked up outside just a couple of hours previously, had been siphoned of all its gas (or as they like to call it in the UK, petrol).

Chris that's a stupid question
Mark Reider Jun 16, 2012
Chris, that comment you just made to Kwesi was messed up. When did he say anything about slaves. Just shows your true colors.
Ibrahim Alkhatib Jun 16, 2012
He said sold not solid ;)
Luis Lujan Jun 15, 2012
He should have borrowed a buddy's car, siphoned one, then gone straight to siphon the other one. That would be a more obvious criminal action.

@christian "petrol is actually solid in liquid form"please explain how something can be a solid when In liquid form. Pretty sure that's a contradiction.
Kwesi Desmond Prempeh Jun 15, 2012
Most not all. When working in the US I was approached by a collegue who asked what language is spoken in England I replied Spanish she said I thought so. Go figure. As I said most not all.

Chris Wagner do you not have a TV. There are a host of film stars sports stars music and professionals all black that were born in The UK .Let's keep it simple and stupid for you. Comments like that reinforce the notion that most Americans are Dumb!

Hmm thats a pretty good looking car. Vw should sell it here
Patrick Joseph Jun 14, 2012
It wasn't so obvious. I believe most people thought he was working on his car. I mean you wouldn't think people would do this in a crowded area like that.
Cian Rules Jun 14, 2012
He should have dressed a bit rougher while extracting the PETROL

I think part of the reason that no one is reacting is that it's so unlikely that someone would commit a crime like that so openly in front of everyone. Most probably assume that whatever's going on is legitimate.
Wyatt Gordon Jun 14, 2012
About this whole argument on whether its "gas" or "petrol" no one gives a shit
Justin Carter Jun 14, 2012
I'm just going to suggest that had he done that in the US, things would most likely be different

What has this world come to?!
Josh Willes Jun 14, 2012
I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

This guy should host "What Would You Do" the UK version, i would've liked to see what excuses ppl come up with for why they didn't say anything

@Christian "petrol" is short for petroleum, which is just crude oil fresh out of the ground. Gasoline, or "gas," is the refined version of crude oil that we put in cars. So, technically, we Americans are more right than you are
Dan Ruth Jun 14, 2012
The trick is to look like you own the car
Matt White Jun 14, 2012
I feel if you do anything with a certain amount of confidence people tend to believe you wouldn't be confident enough to actually do that in broad daylight and therefore do not think your actually up to no good. Why do I think this? Try it.
Micah Lau Jun 14, 2012
Perhaps the passers by thought he was on bath salts - who knows?
Matt White Jun 14, 2012
Thank you Christopher Wallace. Christian is an idiot.
Oscar Galvan Jun 14, 2012
Also here it's seems people just don't care
Christopher Wallace Jun 14, 2012
christian you do know gas is short for gasoline, right?
Oscar Galvan Jun 14, 2012
Psychologically it's because people think because there are so many people there, there is bound to be someone who will help. With that mentality no one ultimately helps thinking someone will do something. Sadly happens a a lot.
Lee Cascio Jun 14, 2012
It's amazing how complacent people have become these days but this is no suprise when you can see a brutal attack on a bus or other crowded area and not one person is willing to help. Sad sad state we have come to as humans.
Christian De Prisco Jun 14, 2012
Yes it's called petrol cause gas is just a status of an element, and petrol is actually sold in liquid form, not gas, so you Americans are wrong twice in one word!
Patrick Schalk Jun 14, 2012
That's what happens when you live in a place that no one gives a shit about anyone else.
Michael Douglas Jun 14, 2012
I think that is just to bloody funny. I ain't paying for gas ever again.
Jose Carlos Jun 14, 2012
Incredible I must say. WOW. In my country they are stealing rims like if they were doughnuts out of a pastry shop. Nice video to raise awareness.
Description: Given it was broad daylight surely someone had noticed the thief draining his VW Polo's fuel tank? Why had no-one intervened? To test the public's reaction to gasoline theft, Rory conducts h...
