The video is about a man who wanted to sue his boss for a full days wage. He went out partying and drinking believing he had a day off. His boss being a prankster, rang him up and asked him to come into work on account of the other guy not showing up.
When he arrived there, the guy who has the shift was there and his boss just laughed and recorded his reaction.
The boss put the video up on the internet for the world to see.
The guy who was pranked took his boss to court (Judge Rinders court) because he believed he had a day off and was in no condition to go to work and wants a full days wage for compensation.
Judge Rinder had to dismiss the applicaiton given whenever prank or not his boss can schedule when his employees can work or not.
However he given the victim an even better claim. The video of the prank was put up on the internet without his permission and ever since he's been a subject of ridicule. The judge couldn't get him a full-days wage for the prank, but he got him £500 for the prank going public without his permision.
I do not know if America has any similar laws, just saying that this YouTube channel Gas Station Encounters could still get in trouble for their videos.
Yes the recorded footage is of people shoplifting, but those people can still press charges for those videos of them made public for ridicule. It's why when surveillance footage appears on TV or the news, it's common to blur out faces to prevent this.
