Two videos that went viral last week were found to be fake. One of the videos, which turned out to be staged, showed a drunk girl being harassed in Hollywood. The actors who participated in the video believed they were making a student film. The other fake video showed footage of a young Syrian boy saving his sister's life amidst gunfire. The Norwegian directors of the video claimed that their intention was to inspire debate. We take a look at the fake drunk girl video and discuss the ethics of trying to make a point through dramatization, in this Lip News clip with Gabriel Mizrahi and Jackie Koppell.
