It helps that all the companies involved are real, as are some of the words. All in all, a nice prank to play on know-it-all blowhards. :D

"Adrian Gee EXPOSED as Liar and Conman".

He has a popular YouTube series of supposedly exposé videos showing people doing bad things. In one he posed as a blind person who asked people for change for a Aus$5 bill but hands people a $50 note. Note that ALL of the people in his videos were actors specifically given instructions to do exactly what they did. Because in some of Gee's videos there were some identifying non-facial features (the faces were blurred), some of the people have been identified and--predictably--have been getting accusations and threats.

Also--unlike US banknotes--Australian banknotes differ in length related to its value, and the hologram design in the lower-outside corners shown below (which are obverse side left, reverse side right) help the blind to identify a given note:

That explained part of the problems. Still waiting for the reasoning behind the terrible cinematography and post decisions.
At first I just blamed HFR but realized that the higher frame rate did not cause the over sharpened harshness of the film. That was a design choice, a very poor one.

You most likely never had a yam in the US.

While some actual yams can be found in a few specialty markets which feature foreign imports, nearly every "yam" that is sold in most US markets is just another sweet potato. The term "yam" was applied to them probably because of slaves in the American South gave that word (or their linguistic progenitors of "yam") which they used in Africa to the nearest foodstuff they found in the US. Beginning in the late 19th century some US farmers began marketing "yams" in an attempt to distinguish their produce from those from others.

"Tony Hawk Skates First-Ever Horizontal Loop".

It was, of course, not purely horizontal in that the specialized ramp he had made for this stunt descends in a curve to allow for his body and board to fall during his attempts, but, yeah.

This is also an ad for Sony's Action Cam which was mounted on his board.

Bizarre accident.

A telephone cable was left in the road (with the probable explanation that most vehicles would simply drive over it), but a street sweeper ran over it getting the cable caught in its rotary cleaner.
