Holy crap! Here in Seattle, they ticket you for jay walking (not that the guy in the video was doing that, as far as I could tell). Also, here in Seattle, there'd have been about 10 people following that guy and getting taken out by the bus/car because they were just being mindless sheep and following the guy. Er, hint: Jay walking is a singles sport, not a group activity.

um... am i the only one who realizes that the video is a fake? it's two videos superimposed on top of one another.

Yeah, definitely faked -- you can see at the end that it doesn't quite match up.
Wish I could show that vid to all the idiots in SF that get halfway into the intersection before they decide to look up from their cell phones to see if there is a car coming....and then give you a dirty look.

Where the heck was that bus driver going?

You can see the pedestrian slide sideways in his run; it's fake.
