Mystery police operation demystified

June 3, 2008

I’m glad I can rely on The Age to be on-the-ball with breaking news. Twelve hours after the newspaper’s own immediate vicinity was closed off, an online news report appeared. Two guys, on the roof of The Age building, were making their own version of I Am Legend. According to the report, which seems to have disappeared, they had replica weapons and were taking turns photographing each other in poses from the movie. A security guard at the newspaper noticed them on via security cameras and called it in to the police and… well, I saw the result.

There was no mention of a man lying in Little Lonsdale Street, so perhaps I imagined that. Apparently the two film-makers tried to escape on their bikes (I’m not sure whether the image I have in my mind of two lanky guys on BMXs is due to reporting or wishful thinking) and were caught in King Street. Not, then, apprehended violently in Little Lonsdale.
