Video: Would You Like a Fake Rolex With That Olympic T-shirt?

From JapanProb:

For those that missed their report on fake brand goods that aired before the Beijing Olympics, Fuji TV has aired a new report on fake Olympic t-shirts being sold on the streets the day after the Olympics ended:

The t-shirts are being sold along with other popular counterfeit brand goods, and the sales are going on in broad daylight in front of the Bird’s Nest stadium that hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the games. Foreign tourists are being sold the illegal goods in plain sight of police officers, who walk by without taking any action.

Fuji TV’s staff buys a few of the Olympic staff shirts being sold after the street salesman assures them that it is not a fake. They take the shirts to actual Olympic staff members, who tell them they’ve bought a cheap imitation. Olympic t-shirts purchased on the street also prove to be fake, something that should be obvious given the fact that the shirts are being sold for one fourth the price of official shirts.

When confronted afterwords about their products being fake, most street vendors declined to be interviewed. However, one vendor went into an angry rant about how just about everything out there in the world is fake, even people (Fuji TV took this as a reference to the lip-syncing scandal).
