MTV, unsatisfied with the levels of public intrusion and annoyance achieved by Jackass, has apparently been working on a Candid-Camera-like series, "Harassment". One prank in their (as yet unreleased) pilot episode features a fake bloody corpse in the hotel room of some unsuspecting travelers. The travelers, who were trapped in the room temporarily by fake security guards, are suing.
When people are offended by what they see on TV, I say "change the channel". When people are bothered by morons injuring themselves intentionally on TV, I say "lighten up". But when television crews scare the living crap out of random strangers for no reason, I'm happy to see them sued.
