Animated Version Of TSA Naked Scans And Gropings
from the must-see-tv dept
With all the recent stories of questionable TSA searches of people who opt out of both the TSA naked backscatter scanners and a personal groping by a TSA agent, it really was only a matter of time until the famed Taiwanese news animators NMA stepped up with an animated recreation, which I would say… um… takes some poetic licenses with the story — especially when it comes to the availability of a private search area for the grope. That said, it covers the story of the “don’t touch my junk” guy (and shows picketers with a sign saying that), as well as a planned protest of the machines for November 24th, one of the biggest travel days of the year.
Among the more amusing bits are a prediction of all naked flights (on which the people all seem way too happy) and terrorists laughing at our new security measures.
Meanwhile, for those of us in the US (I know, I know, don’t blame me, blame Viacom), you can watch Stephen Colbert’s take on the TSA security mess, involving “x-raying your x-rated parts,” along with noting that it appears the company making most of these devices, Rapiscan, hopefully is not pronounced “rape-iscan”:
