Would this scene make you look twice?

What would you do is someone sat down next to you at Starbucks and started smoking crack?

One comedian wanted to see the public's reaction to watching someone light up a crack pipe, so he created a water-bottle "pipe" and started smoking "crack" along Market Street. As the video unfolds, he takes his pipe to Union Square and into a woman's clothing store -- he even lights up in front of some cops. To see the reactions (or lack there of) check out the video:

Saw a girl doing it on the curb as eight officers strolled by chatting away, I walked up to them pointed her out, they laughed and said "What do expect lady? This is San Francisco!"

without reading this i'm gonna go out on a limb and say SFPD did nothing... i say that after witnessing a guy whip out his junk at the corner of Steiner/Geary, adjacent to a playground, and start pissing all over the sidewalk in broad daylight -- SFPD cruiser was 20 ft away, saw the whole thing and just drove past him... i've seen crack smoked openly on O'Farrell St. where there's a constant police presence.

Funny would of being first he goes into the Tenderloin, and does it among the real deal, then second he tries it, with a more realistic crack pipe, in Aquatic Park and the Marina. Then the police would of taken notice. In those places, it is rare to see a black person, full stop.

I smell it all of the time outside downtown, so I'm sure he's not the only one.

You only went to touristy parts of the city. Of course you got stares there, yet no real reaction. You didn't go into any real neighborhood.

if he was looking for a reaction, he picked the wrong city

That's not funny, or clever. Whether it's fake, or not, it ain't cute to be doing that in a crowd of families and children. Fuck that idiot.

I smoked a joint infront of the Meteron and no one said anything. My friend did the same thing in Bayview.......no bueno

What is the point? Obviously not real, did you expect police to arrest, or tourists to get upset? Want a reaction, go to Sixth Street and try again.

Smoking crack is OK in San Francisco but hell if you park a car in the city's parking scam...

Ha! It was probably a welcome relief to see someone minding their own business after the rash of beatings and stabbing along Market during Pride.
