Pranksters use fake videos of politicians to draw attention to poverty

The Yes Men, an international group of activists, are calling for the Davos Forum to solve the problem of poverty.

And they're doing it in a rather unconventional way – by making fake videos of famous politicians pledging to help the world's struggling poor.

“Look at what’s going on in Haiti today”, says Philippe Diaz, co-creator of the videos. “It’s exactly the same thing over and over again. So we wanted to say what would happen if all the leaders of the world were united and say we understand what the poverty is all about. So we decided to change that.”
