Video description
VICE's Will Tilghman tries to make his monthly rent of $965 by working weird jobs posted on the gigs section of New York Craigslist. After staging a photoshoot for a restaurant, screening a bad horror movie, trying a new deodorant, writing a bio for a nice mom, handing out newspapers, doing a timely impersonation of Lord Varys from “Game of Thrones”, and more, Will goes deep into the world of Craigslist to see if he can actually pay his rent by doing odd-jobs.

I Broke Dumb Laws In Front Of Police

Britain is an old-fashioned, weird place, and its esoteric laws are among the most ridiculous things about the place. From it being illegal to handle a salmon suspiciously, to the threat of having your head chopped off for wearing a suit of armour in Parliament, VICE's Oobah Butler sees if anyone takes any of these laws seriously by trying to break as many as he can—in front of policemen.

One of Yelp’s Worst-Rated Plastic Surgeons: I Got Work Done | One Star Reviews

We found one of Yelp’s worst rated plastic surgeons to work on Taji’s face. Some reviews mention Dr. Mirza works out of gym bags, others say he works under different aliases at various locations. Either way, the reviews warned us to be very skeptical. But this show is all about giving fair chances and offering redemption, so we rolled the dice as usual. Taji’s procedure involved Botox of the forehead, fillers between the eyes, and around the mouth. Can Taji keep his youthful glow?

Inside Miami’s Luxury Car Hustle: Fake It ‘Til You Make It

“The car business in general is a tough business. The car rental business, even more so. Anybody who finds out they can make money and drive a Ferrari, I mean, they’re diving in head first,” says Matt Cruz, owner of MVP Exotic Rentals, a legitimate luxury car rental business based in Miami. But when everybody wants to be a celebrity, how do you tell the difference between faking it and making it? The game is finesse, and with the allure of getting behind the wheel of the world’s most expensive cars, who wouldn’t want to play? In a world where...

Internet Scamming in Ghana

Fraudsters in Ghana show us how they use internet scams to steal thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims all over the globe. -- While Nigeria's 401 scammers may have written the book on West African internet fraud, their shtick looks like Compuserve compared to what's going on in Ghana. Unsatisfied with the meager winnings from emailing thousands of random Westerners in hopes of convincing one poor sap they're the treasurer of the Ivory Coast, Ghana's scammers decided to stack the odds in their favor the old-fashioned way—witchcraft. Taking a page from cyberpunk, traditional West African Juju priests adapted their services to the needs...

This Rags-To-Riches Business Has Beat The Retail Apocalypse (HBO)

Traffic on the corner of Melrose and Fuller regularly comes to a halt here on any given Saturday, as shoppers from near and far dart through traffic in designer sneakers. They’re trying to get from one Round Two store to the next. A few years ago, this corner was empty. Now it’s Round Two’s block, or “village,” as owner Sean Wotherspoon calls it, with its three stores clustered for a unique retail experience. In the Round Two vintage store, shoppers comb through vintage Polo jackets, Janet Jackson tour T-shirts, and other rare vintage finds, some with $200 pricetags. Next door, customers...

We Tried Skating Our Way Into the 2019 Met Gala

When the annual Met Gala was going down, it seemed too good an opportunity to miss… so VICE’s Taji Ameen recruited Pro Skater Duncan Rowland and off they went. This year’s theme was ‘Camp’, so Duncan and Taji dressed for the occasion the best they could, armed with a small ramp and a skateboard each.

Being a White Student at a Historically Black College

On this episode of 'MINORITY REPORTS,' we met up with Tiago, a white freshman at Morehouse College, an HBCU in Atlanta that counts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Spike Lee as alumni. We sat down with him to hear why he decided to enroll in the school, asked his peers for their thoughts on having white students on campus, and followed along as he showed us what it’s like to be one of very few non-black students at school.

Schoolgirls for Sale in Japan

Japan’s obsession with cutesy culture has taken a dark turn, with schoolgirls now offering themselves for “walking dates” with adult men. Last year the US State Department, in its annual report on human trafficking, flagged so-called joshi-kosei osanpo dates (that’s Japanese for “high school walking”) as fronts for commercial sex run by sophisticated criminal networks. In our exclusive investigation, VICE News host Simon Ostrovsky will bring you to one of Tokyo’s busiest neighborhoods, where girls solicit clients in their school uniforms, to a concert performed by a band of schoolgirls attended by adult men, and into a café, where teenage girls...

The main obstacle for them, however, was that it didn't exist. Over the course of 8 months VICE's Oobah Butler used an assault of fake reviews to get his 'restaurant' to the hallowed top spot on TripAdvisor. With his phone perpetually ringing, PR agencies begging to represent it and TV crews pitching shows, Oobah decided he had no choice but to open its...

Underground Street Racers (Smoke Show: EP1)

In the first episode of Smoke Show (watch episode 2 here: http://bit.ly/2rlkFC3), VICE follows a group of organized street racers in the suburbs of Toronto. Instead of racing on closed tracks like most in the local car community, these underground racers spark controversy by choosing to race illegally in the maze of industrial roads around the airport because commercial flight paths make it impossible for police helicopters to fly.

Why West African Truckers Can't Do Their Job

West African truck drivers spend days, weeks, and sometimes months dealing with corrupt border officials and illegal checkpoints on harrowing delivery trips that should take just a few hours. All of which turns shipments which would take a few hours in Europe or America into grueling, day to week to monthlong affairs punctuated by long and unpredictable periods of complete standstill. Which, in addition to wasting fuel and driving up the cost of goods with every unplanned stop, also fuels the sort of boredom that can only be fought by dumping money into the less savory sectors of the economy....

Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan

In rural Kyrgyzstan men still marry their women the old-fashioned way: by abducting them off the street and forcing them to be their wife. Bride kidnapping is a supposedly ancient custom that's made a major comeback since the fall of Communism and now accounts for nearly half of all marriages in some parts. We traveled to the Kyrgyz countryside to follow a young groom named Kubanti as he surprised his teenage girlfriend Nazgul with the gift of marriage/kidnapping.

Expelled From Every Other School

On Chicago's West Side, there is a school for the city's most at-risk youth — the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders. Last Chance High takes viewers inside Montefiore's classrooms and into the homes of students who are one mistake away from being locked up or committed to a mental hospital. In the first episode of the eight-part original VICE News series we are introduced to two 14-year-old Montefiore students, Cortez and Crystal, who were sent to the school after...

The Real Nancy Botwin From 'Weeds'?

With marijuana now being largely legal in Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, and Washington, Showtime's crime sitcom no longer seems like outlandish fiction.

The Crystal Meth Epidemic Plaguing Fresno

Fresno is experiencing a meth epidemic. Located in California’s Central Valley, the city is a hub for many major highways and is surrounded by vast farmlands. And while now, most meth is smuggled from Mexico, the valley was once an ideal location for meth manufacturing labs in the 1990's. Today, methamphetamine is the number one threat for the Central Valley Drug Task Force, and, because latinos make up half of Fresno's population, they are also being affecting by this epidemic. VICE's Paola Ramos traveled to Fresno to explore the history, factors and the ongoing relationship between the Latino community and methamphetamine...

The Worst Fish in America: Asian Carpocalypse

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News VICE News correspondent Thomas Morton investigates Asian carp — a slimy, ugly, and often gargantuan species of fish that has taken over many waterways in the United States. First introduced in the US in the 1960s to control weeds and parasites at aquatic farms in Arkansas, the bottom feeders eventually escaped and made their way through the Mississippi River system, eating almost everything in their path and severely damaging ecosystems across the Midwest. Today, government officials are concerned that the fish will invade the Great Lakes, destroy more ecosystems, wreak havoc on the region's multibillion dollar...
