No camera crew? No problem.

An unsigned band from Manchester, UK called The Get Out Clause decided that the lack of "quid" for a proper camera crew wasn't going to stop them from creating their next music video. They set up in front of over 80 closed circuit cameras around the city (including on a city bus) and played away.

They then wrote to the respective companies and organizations and requested the video footage under that Freedom of Information Act. In the end, about a quarter of their requests were honored. From that, their video was created.

Stickin' it to the man... Brilliant.
