Bikini Bandits: Denmark’s Speed Control

There are traffic circles. There are red light cameras. There are speed bumps. Getting people to slow down when they are driving comes in many forms. Denmark came up with a rather unique solution. This is a little test to see if you can tell the difference between a real news story or a fake one.

Bikini Bandits was created by the Danish Road Safety Council to slow down speeders. That is true. This video was part of an ad campaign. The story, though, is a made up news segment about these speed control gals. Bikini Bandits don’t really exist. I have to admit, though, when I first saw this video, I thought there really are such traffic police and I’ve been to Denmark. I even lived there. Also, according to Duncan’s TV Ad Land, Spotlight on the World the news show featured is a made up show as well. Seriously, I’ll believe about anything.
